Looking down to Amalfi

Ravello is a large village is perched on a cliff
overlooking Amalfi and
the sea.

It is a very picturesque place with its wonderful
ancient villas like "Villa Cimbrone" and "Villa Rufolo".

Villa Rufolo is a smaller and has lovely terraces gardens looking onto the sea. It now hosts Wagner classical concerts in the summer.

Villa Cimbrone has larger gardens filled with exotic flowers and shrubs, temples and grottoes and statues, although each Villa has its own special character.
