Set way above the Amalfi Coast, atop cliffs and mountains, Ravello has attracted a number of rich and famous creatives over the years. It’s easy to see why—the town’s historical setting and amazing views must certainly provide ample inspiration.
Even if you’re not working on a painting or novel, visit Ravello, where you can see ancient churches, meticulously manicured gardens, and coastal views. Don’t miss the outdoor performances held by the Ravello Concert Society!
And, of course, since Ravello is in Italy there are plenty of fabulous restaurants to choose from. Pair your meals with wines from the local vineyards located just below the town.
Where is it? Southern Italy, above the Amalfi Coast. Fly to Naples International Airport (check prices), take a ferry to Amalfi, and then a bus or taxi to Ravello.
Where to Stay? At the super deluxe Palazzo Sasso. This 12th century villa-turned-hotel sits atop the cliffs, offering amazing views, a heated swimming pool, and a private beach club.
What Else Should I Know? Visit in the summer during the Ravello Festival, a classical musical event series.
Who’s it For? Bohemians, music lovers, the jet-set crowd.
