    If you have one day to see the Amalfi Coast, make sure you see the town of Ravello. Make doubly sure you are there during the daytime because the views are going to be one of the best you will ever see in this world.

    Ravello is situated about 5 km from Amalfi; up on the mountain, overlooking the coast from Maiori to Amalfi.
    Ravello was founded in the VI century A.D., reaching the apex of the splendor in the X and XI century; following the same sort of the Amalfi Republic, even after obtaining the independence from her, when they refused to follow, in the XI century, Amalfi in a war against Guiscardo.

    To visit:
    - Villa Rufolo
    - Villa Cimbrone
    - The Church dedicated to San Pantaleone

    Villa Cimbrone

    When we travel, our goal is to find beautiful out-of-the-way places filled with character, yet not overrun with tourists. We found such a place in Ravello. Many people who come to this area stop at the town of Amalfi and continue on bypassing Ravello all together. Well, their loss was our gain. See my Ravello page for more info.
