Ravello

Ravello is a natural terrace lying on the rock and overlooking the Gulf of Salerno, not far away from Amalfi, Maiori and Minori. Surrounded by lush vegetation is one of the most peaceful, charming and chic villages of the Amalfi Coast, described by several travellers as the ‘Home of Spirit’.
