Hidden treasures in plain sight

Last night we ventured to the top of Maiori to a medieval castle. Built around 800 A.D. it is the only castle along the Amalfi Coast that was never conquered. We arrived about 6:30 pm but found the gates locked, despite a closing time of 7 pm. I guess the worker figured no one would spend a Friday night visiting the castle. So we tried a walk along a very small path on the outside, only to be turned back by heavy vegetation and steep inclines. Since we had an 8 year old and a dog with us we didn't want to take any chances. We were disappointed that we couldn't get inside, but the views from the top still made this a fantastic trip.
