Costiera Amalfitana – Panoramic view

It sits enthroned high above the sea – the town of Ravello, an architectural and historic gem at the Amalfi coast.

If you believe the legends to be true, the small town was founded around 500 AD by Roman aristocratic families who sought refuge here from the marauding barbarians from the north.

Due to its central location, Ravello quickly grew into a prospering center of maritime trade.

Famous families

One of Ravello’s landmarks is Villa Rufolo. It was built by an aristocratic family in the 12th century and nowadays it is a popular destination for excursions.

Landolfo Rufolo, a member of this patrician family, became a literary celebrity: he is mentioned in Boccaccio’s Decamerone. 

Ravello Festival

The villa is of significance even in the history of music: Richard Wagner is said to have been inspired for the stage design of his opera Parsifal by the villa’s gardens. 

Every summer since 1953, Ravello hosts the „Ravello Festival“, which offers above all musical performances from the oeuvre of the famous composer.  

Tourists then and now

Ravello has been and still is a popular destination. For centuries, many artists, female and male alike, were attracted to this place in Southern Italy.  

Authors from all over the world strolled along the cliffs reflecting on their writing, for example Virginia Woolf, Henrik Ibsen, Tennessee Williams or Truman Capote.

Not only poets, but also painters like Joan Mirò found peace and inspiration here.

Last but not least, Ravello turned into a hotspot of the jet set, of the wealthy and the beautiful, ranging from Jacky Kennedy to Humphrey Bogart, Barbra Streisand, Federico Fellini and Romy Schneider to Nicolas Cage or Ben Stiller.
