Any intrepid traveller surely must have come across those famous shots of the Amalfi Coast taken from Ravello - with the round topped church tops and blue blue sea and bit of bright contrasting Bougainvillea - the Lonely Planet refers to Ravello as giving the best views of the Amalfi Coast.
After my exhilerating trip winding around how many corners in a big, fast bus in the dark but still -able-to-see-the-dramatic-distance-directly-below us on that winding road to my hostel up at Agerola-San Lazzaro and then the exhilerating repeat journey the next morning in daylight i was really getting anticipation excitement about my forthcoming 930 am bus up to Ravello! The sun was up and shining in readiness too!
In addition to touring the stunning gardens of the Villa Rufolo is the Villa Cimbrone, a 10-15 minute lovely walk through the village with cobbled stone streets and mansions and small vineyards and designer patio gardens, away to another lovely (lots of lovely!! its Ravello!) vantage spot on those huge look out hills above the Amalfi Coast. These villas go right back to the Romans on holiday days!
So theres history in addition to classy gardens and arcitecture and the stunning scenery
- Pros:Stylish style and class high up looking down over beautiful sea and colourful towns and villages and terrace groves, smell the wonderful scent under the pine trees up in the fresh air in the gardens of Villa Cimbrone, the stunning 3km steps walk back
- Cons:Its a long way uphill! do take the bus! unless you are training for mountain climbing endurance etc!
- In a nutshell:I am thrilled I have been and seen and greatly enjoyed! All my senses were greatly blessed!
