Luxury Ravello Holidays

An aristocratic town with famous cliffside gardens

Ravello

The cliffside town of Ravello rests above the Amalfi Coast, between Amalfi and Maiori. Panoramic gardens are its claim to fame: mansions like Villa Rufolo set their fruit orchards and manicured flower beds on terraces that step steeply down towards the Tyrrhenian Sea.
 
The wealthy Rufolo family also helped fund the Ravello Cathedral on Piazza Duomo. This pale-stone church pairs boxy Romanesque architecture with a Byzantine bell tower dedicated to Saint Pantaleon. 
 
Streets filled with art galleries, wineries, restaurants and pottery shops unravel from the main square. It’s this creative streak that once attracted the bohemian Bloomsbury Group, including Virginia Woolf and E. M. Forster.
 
The rest of the Amalfi Coast is within easy day-tripping distance of Ravello. Easterly next door neighbours include Minori and the sandy beaches at Maori, while Amalfi is just a 20-minute drive south-west.
 
Flight Information

Flights from the UK to Naples (the closest airport for the Neapolitan Riviera) take approximately 2 hours 45 minutes.

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Naples airport to Ravello is approximately 1 hour 40 minutes. 

When to go

Any time from April through to October is a fantastic time to visit Ravello. The summer months are when temperatures are at their highest, reaching highs of around 30 degrees. Early or late summer is when temperatures drop slightly, though you will find it still pleasant enough to enjoy an aperitivo outside. If you do decide on the summer months, from June to September, Ravello hosts its annual music festival. 

Visa Information

British citizens do not currently require a visa to visit Italy.

Tipping

When you dine out in Italy, you will generally be charged a coperto (cover charge), which is for the bread, tablecloth, cutlery, etc. Tipping in Italy is not customary, but is always appreciated.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Italy is Italian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
