Ravello is one of the most charming towns on the Amalfi Coast. It offers some of the best views of the famous coastline, with sweeping seascapes and breathtaking scenery. It is, in short, an ideal location. While the origins of Ravello date back to the Roman era, it was the Middle Ages that gave it wealth and status, when the inhabitants were involved in maritime trade with the Orient. The newly enriched families of that age built castles, villas, churches and civic buildings to show off their wealth and to rival their richer, influential neighbor town of Amalfi. Amalfitans gave Ravello the name, "Rebellum" (rebel).
The town's villas offer vivid vantage points for the views. Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo are famous for their encompassing panoramas. Villa Rufolo inspired the composer Wagner when he wrote his famed opera, Parsifal. Ravello is still known for its musical events, including the Ravello Festival, which is strongly connected to the composer and his symphonies. The town boasts its cultural roots, too; just stroll the alleyways, enjoy the architecture and piazzas to see the town's history and pride at its best.
The Cathedral, dedicated to San Pantaleo, was inaugurated in 1087. The simple facade hides a lovely church with a grand 12th century entry doors and a pulpit plopped atop six spiral columns. The cathedral's museum houses sculpture and art dating back to Roman and Medieval times. Ravello is home to the fascinating little Coral Museum of Ravello, a showcase of craftsmanship in the art of the coral jewelry and decoration. The town is noted for its devotional chapels and votives that are attached to and painted on walls all over the city. Look for them as you wander the streets.
A recommended tour is to take the bus uphill, then walk back downhill to Amalfi. There's a nice path alongside a stream between Amalfi and Ravello and it is well signed on the maps. Have lunch in Ravello and then walk off the pasta on the pathway!
Plant grass stickers! Italy's most beautiful Mediterranean landscape
Italy's Almafi Coast is a popular tourist spot in southern Italy, the average tourist will choose Almafi, Positano, Capri as a foothold to play. It is a happy thing to be close to the blue Mediterranean Sea, lying on the beach in sunny sunshine.
In addition to these small towns, there is also a small town that is also worth visiting: Ravello/Ravero Ravello. Founded in the 6th century, the town of Ravello, around a thousand years AD, a group of aristocrats from the Amalfi Republic who resisted the authority of the time to visit this place, watching Ravello face the sea, backed by the mountains Strategic position, thus settled here.
Ravello's most famous villas, Rufolo and Cimbrone, feel that it would be a shame if you don't go to Amalfi. Tickets for these two famous villas are 6 euros, and if you buy a joint ticket with Artecard, you only need 6 euros. (Fig. 2)
Rufolo is located on the Amalfi Coast, full of splendid buildings. The sun and the natural beauty embrace the Villa Luvro, making the villa fascinating like a peach garden.
Ravello Ravello is built on the sea but built on the mountain. The traffic is inconvenient. From Amalfi, you can walk around the mountain for an hour or less to get to ravello. There are two important sights in the town, Rufolo and Cimbrone. Most of the people who used to come here to see Rufolo's most beautiful balcony in Europe. With the enthusiasm of Wonder Woman, the exposure of Cimbrone Villa and Matera Town is getting higher and higher.
There are only mountain roads leading to Villa Cimbrone. Pedestrians and small motorbikes can be reached. The traffic is very inconvenient. The transportation of goods is the same as that of the Cinque Terre. In addition to the attractions, Villa Cimbrone also hides a five-star hotel within the gate. The history of Cimbrone can be traced back to the 11th century, and today's villas are built in the early 20th century by a British baron.
Through the straight tree-lined path, come to the familiar movie scene, look at the distant sea, you can imagine that this is an isolated island in the Mediterranean, but unfortunately, from now on Seen on the terrace, there are fewer scattered pearl islands in the sea, and there are fewer scent. But let us be in the real world, not lost in the fantasy of nothingness, can see the more real sea in the distance. This beautiful town is unique on the Amalfi Coast, and I really want to stay and not go away.
