Travel Tips for Ravello

View of Scala from Ravello

by sandysmith

Just as Scala has a great view across to Ravello the same is true of Ravello - it has great views of Scala! From Piazza Vescovado is the best view to Scala - as this was where we were staying, it was a memorable view.

LEMONS OF THE AMALFI COAST

by gmg61

The terrace gardens where the lemon trees grow on the Amalfi coast are a unique feature of the area.
The lemons that grow here are big and sweet.
This kind of lemon is called pane (bread) because they are so big that they can be cut in slices exactly as you do with a round loaf.
You can eat them as they are or with a bit of sugar, or you can make a salad, adding olive oil, mint leaves and salt.
They are also used to make the ?limoncello?, the traditional lemon liqueur brewed all along the Amalfi and the Sorrento coast.
If you want to buy some, you?ll find many road vendors at the edge of the coastal road. They sell not only lemons but also oranges and citruses. Be prepared to pay about Euro 5 for one kilo. One lemon can weight more than one kilo!

Villa Rufolo

by TRimer

Villa Rufolo was built in the 13th century by the wealthy Rufoli family of Ravello and was the residence of several popes, of Charles of Anjou and in 1880, of Wagner. It was here that the German composer Wagner stayed and was moved by the magical beauties of the villa, its gardens and the architecture of the Cloisters to exclaim "the garden of Klingsor is found". Here, every year Wagner's concerts are celebrated as a memento of Richard Wagner's stay.

A well shaded avenue leads to a Gothic entrance tower. Beyond is a Moorish style courtyard with typical sharply pointed arches in the Sicilian-Norman style, overlooking the well -tended gardens and elegant villa. From the terraces there is a splendid panorama of the jagged peaks as far as Cape Orso, the Bay of Maiori and the Gulf of Salerno.

Cathedral of S. Pantaleone

by sandysmith

The Cathedral of S. Pantaleone or Duomo is the main church in Ravello, a symbol of the opulence and strength of Ravello and as such is a must see. It was erected in 1087 A.D., by the Noble family Rufolo and was the seat of the Episcopate until the 19th century.

by Cristian_Uluru
