Villa Rufolo: the jewel of Ravello
Sun and nature, tradition and prestige, the Amalfi coast and Ravello, architectonic and artistic masterpieces that frame Villa Rufolo like a timeless treasure. A favourite haunt of musicians, artists and poets, eulogised in the poetry of Bocaccio and where Richard Wagner saw the living image of the garden of his imagination: a unique experience that takes you into a different world.
The jewel in the crown of Ravello, veduta_villathe defiant stronghold of the once great Amalfi Maritime Republic, contains centuries of history, magnificent works of art, and legends. The Villa is unique in terms of its architecture and decoration, and has never failed to make travellers marvel – all those who have had reason to cross its threshold down the centuries. Its uniqueness reflects its location at the crossroads of intense commercial and cultural exchanges; indeed Gregorovius referred to it as “a miniature Alhambra”. iPoland and one of the oldest in Europe.
Ravello, the Amalfi Coast, Italy
Ravello has been named the City of Music and is home to the Villa Cimbrone, the Villa Rufolo, and the striking Oscar Niemeyer Auditorium, and is a vibrant cultural scene, hosting the Ravello Festival, and the Ravello Concert Society. However, whatever the tour guides will try to tell you about Ravello, the way that Ravello touches your senses is indescribable. You need to take a detour in this picturesque city, you need to have a sip (or two) of limoncello, you need to let go and immerse yourself in this unique vibe that is created by thousands of years of history, an enchanting mountaintop setting on Italy’s most beautiful coastline and views that have captivated countless souls, inspired artists and filled hearts with passion. Yet this is just the beginning of what you will find in this charming village on the Amalfi Coast. There are still many stories to be uncovered along its medieval streets, garden villas and ancient stone pathways.

A point: It is way easier than you think to get to Ravello
A note: You can travel by bus, by train, and by car pool. It makes sense to get to Naples and then seek public transporation to reach Ravello.
An idea: You may prefer to travel to Rome and take the train to Naples. It is a nice experience to take a stroll (and a good ice cream, just satunt) in Rome and then move to Naples (for a delicious Pizza), before arriving to Ravello (where we will take care of you, think of the Gala Dinner on April 11, 2024 :), no kidding).
