WHAT TO DO

There are many things to do in Ravello. It is worth to start your visit with Ravello’s main square which has several restaurants and cute shops. In addition, at the piazza you’ll also find the central Cathedral Duomo di Ravello. One of Ravello’s main and best attractions is Villa Rufolo which is located only few steps away from the main square. The stunning villa was built in 1270 by Nicola Rufolo. Its beauty and unique architecture has made it a famous attraction. What caught my eye the most was its beautiful gardens and especially the gorgeous views overlooking the Amalfi Coast. Another great attraction in Ravello is located at the end of a long picturesque path and is called Villa Cimbrone. The villa is a historic building dating back to the 11th century and is located on a rocky outcrop. It is especially visited for its scenic terrace, known as “the Terrace of Infinity”. The two villas are definitely a must-visit attractions when in Ravello.

    I have been to Amalfi coast and all I can is that its scintillating. Those were the most amazing days of our trip when we went to Amalfi. Loved your outfit so much, indeed matched with the subtle backgrounds.

    How gorgeous is this place though?! Ben absolutely fell in love with the Duomo’s we saw throughout Italy, so I know that’d be his first stop. Mine would be the food, of course. We definitely want to hit the Almafi coast since we weren’t able to get there over the summer!

    I have wanted to visit the Amalfi coast for years to see places like Villa Cimbrone that are 1000 years old would be amazing. Especially coming from a country that our oldest buildings are only a couple of hundred years old.
