The Villas of Ravello

Home > Experiences > The Villas of Ravello

Visit the village of Ravello, one of the jewels of the Amalfi Coast, and explore its beautiful villas

Perched high in the hills above Amalfi, the village of Ravello is a beautiful maze of cobbled streets and charming medieval houses. Historically it was a favorite destination of artists, writers and musicians, including the likes of Virginia Woolf, D.H. Lawrence, Greta Garbo and Richard Wagner, who composed some of his best operas here. Today Ravello is known as the “town of music” because of an acclaimed summer music festival that sees the participation of renowned Italian and international artists. The tour includes a visit to Ravello’s splendid historic residences: XII-century Villa Cimbrone, with its beautiful “Terrace of Infinity” that offers spectacular views over the Tyrrhenian sea, and XIII-century Villa Rufolo featuring perfectly-manicured gardens, a Moorish cloister and an extraordinary panorama over the coast.
