Ravello is one of the most attractive destinations on the Amalfi Coast. With a population of about 2,000, the settlement perches high above Amalfi, overlooking the Mediterranean. The renowned musical festival is held every year in Ravello, with classical music concerts taking place in gardens with breathtaking views, all through the summer months.
The town was once part of the Republic of Amalfi; Now it is a peaceful historic village popular with tourists and honeymooners.
The main Ravello tourist attractions are the two famous gardens, Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo. Both of these panoramic gardens are open to the public, and you can wander through the tropical plants and enjoy fabulous views of the coastline.
Ravello also has an impressive cathedral, the venerable Duomo, dedicated to San Pantaleone whose blood is a treasured relic and supposedly liquefies every year. The Cathedral Museum, in the crypt, is worth visiting. Exhibits include a beautiful sculpted marble head of a woman by Nicola di Bartolomeo da Foggia (although this has been absent on various exhibitions lately, we saw it in Rimini).
