Ravello, the ledge overlooking the sea

Enchanted views among historical villas, typical narrow streets and ledges overlooking the sea. On the top of the hills of the Amalfi Coast, enjoy a magical view from one of the most beautiful places of the world. Unlike the other small villages of the Amalfi Coast, Ravello does not directly face onto the sea, but it expands vertically overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. The core of the town is Piazza del Duomo, with its Gothic-style Cathedral that dates back to 1179. The piazza leads to the beautiful Villa Rufolo, an Arabic-style villa with a terrace overlooking the Amalfi Coast that hosts the best events of the Ravello Festival: an international music festival that is held from June to September. Not far from the villa, walking along the peculiar stepped alleys of the town you can reach the exuberant Villa Cimbrone, with its amazing gardens ending up with the legendary “Terrazza dell’Infinito” (Infinity Terrace). But Ravello hides much more beauty. There's something to suit everybody's fancy: from the Principessa di Piemonte panoramic viewpoint, to the paths that go through the lemon groves terracing and reach the small peculiar hamlets nestled on the hilly slopes of the divine Coast.

The divine coast

he Amalfi Coast, that is in the UNESCO World Heritage List, is one of the most characteristic coastlines of the Italian peninsula. The high coasts overlooking the sea, the inlets and the cliffs full of coloured houses, the crystal clear sea reflecting burning sunsets make this area an ideal tourist destination.
