Ravello holiday highlights
This picture-perfect town offers a tranquil alternative to the bustle of some of Italy's other coastal towns. Renowned for its stunning gardens, beautiful villas and panoramic sea views, medieval Ravello has attracted illustrious visitors from Greta Garbo to Virginia Woolfe, and artists, composers and writers continue to be inspired by the town’s enchanting beauty.
Roam the romantic and resplendent gardens of Villa Cimbrone and prepare to be dazzled by breathtaking views, described by Gore Vidal as ‘the most beautiful view in the world’. The historic Villa Rufolo dates back to the 13th Century, features a unique blend of Arab and Norman architecture and is one of Ravello’s most treasured sites. Its colourful and ornate ‘enchanted gardens’ were immortalised by Wagner over 100 years ago in Parsifal – his final opera. The popular summer 'Ravello Festival' takes place every year in honour of Richard Wagner and celebrates music and the arts.
