Ravello Tour

For a minimum stay of seven nights we offer the possibility of accompanying you to discover our Ravello...

Ravello was founded in the fifth century as a place of refuge from the barbarian raids that marked the end of the Western Roman Empire. Until the eleventh century Ravello followed the fortunes of the Duchy of Amalfi, reaching the height of its splendor thanks to the art of wool and trade to the Mediterranean and Byzantium.

Ravello became an Episcopal seat in 1086, knew the economic and political decline in the Norman era. Since the nineteenth century, rediscovered by intellectuals and artists, regained its importance as a place of culturally elite tourism.

The Cathedral (XI century)

Famous for its famous bronze doors dated 1179 that were made  by Barisano da Trani, for the pulpit, made in 1272 by Nicola di Bartolomeo da Foggia, and for the ambo of the Epistle.

Villa Rufolo

Complex of buildings in Arab-Sicilian style of extraordinary architectural beauty, Villa Rufolo  was built between the thirteenth and fourteenth century by Rufolo, one of the richest and most influential families of Ravello.

Among the most interesting environments are the main tower, 30 meters high, with ogival access arch, adorned on the second level by two mullioned windows on each side, the Moorish cloister, architectural jewel of great charm, enclosed by an arcade with pointed arches, on which rests a double order of loggias, with arabesque decorations and gardens, which inspired Wagner the scenic picture of the garden of Klingsor, the second act of Parsifal.

The panorama is the background, every summer, to the Ravello Festival.

Villa Cimbrone

From a rustic house that belonged to the ancient and noble Fusco family, at the beginning of the twentieth century it became a splendid villa, commissioned by the English Lord Ernest William Bekett.

Thus a four-storey crenellated tower was built, similar to that of Villa Rufolo, decorated with mullioned windows and arched windows; another one shining with terracotta plates, glazed in green, red and blue; a palace, now used as a hotel, furnished with fireplaces, statues, bas-reliefs, tapestries and paintings; a fanciful cloister, an artistic imitation of that of the church of S. Francesco; a unique Tea Room with a large terrace and a small garden. Francesco; a singular Tea Room with white columns and majolica pillars; a crypt adapted to a room-terrace; and again a small temple for the God Bacchus in which are kept the ashes of Lord Grimpthorne; the bronze statue of the messenger of the gods, Mercury, the cave of Eve, the temple of Ceres, but above all famous for the Terrace of Infinity, and from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Amalfi coast and that Gore Vidal has defined as "the most beautiful in the world”.
