Ravello

The garden town

Ravello

Ravello, located at the top of the Dragone Valley, really seems as though it is a town, and a garden, at the same time. Enclosing endless numbers of amazing views, and examples of traditional architecture, the beauty of Ravello has been charming travelers, and artists of all nationalities for centuries. Some famous artists who have visited Ravello are, Boccaccio, and Wagner, as well as many others.

Ravello was founded by the Roman aristocracy, and soon it became a very wealthy and powerful town between the X, and the XIII century. Ravello, like Amalfi, owed its prosperity to extensive commerce throughout the Mediterranean, and to its strong textile industry (wool and cotton). The fall of Ravello's wealth and influence came with Ruggero II, and the Normanni domination. This was furthered even more with the Pisani invasion in 1337, which deprived the entire Amalfi Coast of its independence, and political power.

The most famous architectures in Ravello are Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo. These buildings perfectly represent the architectural style which is typical throughout the major centres found on the Amalfi Coast.

With its luxurious hotels, culture, cuisine, and much more, Ravello has everything it requires to charm its many visitors.
