Holidays to Ravello
Get away from the crowds and surround yourself with lush gardens, crumbling villas, quiet lanes, and spectacular views of the Amalfi Coast in beautiful Ravello. This is the ideal holiday destination for couples, as the atmosphere and scenery lends itself to romantic strolls on the narrow paths that wind down the hills, lazy afternoons spent meandering through flower-scented gardens overlooking the cliffs and the sea, and quiet candlelit dinners in intimate family-run restaurants.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Ravello
Year after year travellers are drawn to Ravello for its mind-boggling views of green cliffs spilling into the turquoise waters of the Bay of Sorrento, far below the town. The best places to fully appreciate the scenery are at Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo. Villa Cimbrone dates to the 11th century, and boasts meticulously manicured grounds and picturesque temples, terraces, and sculptures that look out to the sea below. Villa Rufolo was built in the 13th century, and offers tranquil gardens with shady trees where you can enjoy cool breezes and equally stunning vistas.
Dining in Ravello is an experience in itself. The majority of the restaurants here focus on fresh regional ingredients cooked in the traditional Italian style and paired with excellent Italian wines. Nothing is rushed here, so visitors can expect to enjoy long languid meals spent savouring mouthwatering dishes, and chatting with the chefs, owners, and servers. For those who want to learn to cook their own Italian dishes, Ravello also offers a number of superb cooking schools.
During the summer months, the town hosts the Ravello Festival, which features live performances by symphonies and dance troupes, intriguing painting and sculpture exhibitions, and cutting edge film showings. This is a great time to visit, as locals and tourists alike stroll the streets taking in the entertainment, and the atmosphere is convivial. Another lovely way to spend a warm summer evening is by taking in an outdoor concert at the Villa Rufolo underneath the stars.
