Ravello Travel Guide: 114 reviews and 389 photos

The hillside town of Ravello is located on the small escarpment of Monte Lattari and overlooks the coast south towards the Gulf of Salerno. It is the renowned haunt of writers and musicians and deservedly so - its beauty has inspired them.

Villa Rufulo

Famous for the Villa Rufulo and Villa Cimbrone - both worthy of a visit. Villa Rufolo is smaller and has lovely terraces gardens looking onto the sea. It now hosts Wagner classical concerts in the summer.

Villa Cimbrone

Villa Cimbrone has larger gardens filled with exotic flowers and shrubs, temples and grottoes and statues to explore - longer time can be spent here, although each Villa has its own special character.

    Lovely! I only had a mere hour to spend in Ravello due to the bus schedule (don't ask!). Through your page, now I'm able to see much of what I unfortunately missed. Forget Positano & Amalfi -- it's all about Ravello!
