    Ravello

    June 29, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Ravello is like a breath of fresh air. It is very different because it is not on the coast but high up in the hills. The drive up is such a contrast to what we saw on the coast road. Cliffside gardens of fruit and veges, mainly lemons, surrounded us on the drive to the town of Ravello 365 metres above the Tyrrhenian Sea. Of particular interest to us was the 13th Century Moorish-style Villa Rufolo which belonged to Lia's family at one time. Wow, what a beautiful villa it must have been! It has far-reaching views from its terraced gardens and hosts indoor and outdoor concerts - that would be something special. We loved Ravello. Oh the serenity!Read more

    Scala, Ravello

    May 9, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    On the way home, we stopped by at a town called Ravello, across the ridge from Scala, which is where we stayed. We have seen Ravello from Scala and it looked like it was worth a visit.

    This town boasts a number of 5-star hotels. Not surprising considering the commanding view each hotel gets from their location. Restaurants here seem to tip-toe precariously on cliffs for a view that’s second to none. How did they build in such precarious locations? This seems pretty consistent with the way they drive - they laugh at death in the face.

    Ravello also has a network of little alleyways with shops – always a favourite with Flora. It’s a pity we discovered this town so late in our Amalfi trip. The shops were starting to close, we take a few more happy snaps before we head back to our accommodation. Tomorrow will be an early start as we're heading up to watch Stage 5 of Giro d'Italia (Italy's version of Tour de France).
