Welcome to Ravello

Founded in the 5th century as a sanctuary from barbarian invaders fresh from sacking Rome, this lofty Amalfi town was built, in contrast to other Amalfi settlements, up on a hill rather than down on the coast. It’s second only to Positano in its style and glamour.

Ravello's refinement is exemplified in the town’s polished main piazza, where debonair diners relax under the canopies of al-fresco cafes. It’s also reflected in its lush villas (many now turned into palatial hotels), manicured gardens and one of Italy’s finest musical festivals (thank Wagner’s wife for that).
