Welcome to Italy in Photos, where we invite you to discover the hidden gems of Ravello: – Ravello is a town and comune in the province of Salerno, Campania, Southern Italy, that sits on a cliff overlooking the Amalfi Coast. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a popular tourist destination, known for its stunning views, elegant villas, and rich cultural heritage. Here are some of the highlights of visiting Ravello: – Villa Cimbrone: This is one of the most famous and beautiful villas in Ravello, dating back to the 11th century. It was renovated in the 19th century by an English nobleman, who transformed it into a romantic retreat with a mix of Gothic, Moorish, and Renaissance styles. The villa is surrounded by a magnificent garden, which features statues, fountains, temples, and a terrace that offers a breathtaking panorama of the coast. The terrace is called the Terrace of Infinity, and it is said that the German composer Richard Wagner was inspired by it when he wrote his opera Parsifal. – Villa Rufolo: This is another splendid villa in Ravello, built in the 13th century by the powerful Rufolo family. It was later owned by several popes and kings, and it hosted the likes of Boccaccio, who mentioned it in his Decameron, and Wagner, who composed part of his Parsifal here. The villa has a Gothic cloister, a Moorish tower, and a colourful garden that overlooks the sea. The garden is the venue for the Ravello Festival, an annual music and arts festival that celebrates Wagner’s legacy. – The Duomo, or Cathedral, of Ravello is a Romanesque church that was built in the 11th century and dedicated to St. Pantaleon, the patron saint of the town. The church has a striking facade with a bronze door, a bell tower, and a mosaic of Christ. Inside, you can admire the marble pulpit, the crypt, the museum, and the relics of St. Pantaleon, which are said to liquefy every year on his feast day. – The Ravello Festival is one of the oldest and most prestigious cultural events in Italy, founded in 1953 to honour Wagner’s visit to Ravello. The festival showcases classical music, opera, dance, theatre, and art, and it attracts world-renowned artists and performers. The festival takes place from June to September, mostly in the garden of Villa Rufolo, where you can enjoy the concerts with a spectacular backdrop of the sea and the mountains. Ravello is not only a feast for the eyes, but also for the palate. The town offers a variety of delicious dishes, such as scialatielli (a type of fresh pasta), zuppa di pesce (fish soup), mozzarella di bufala (buffalo mozzarella cheese), and sfogliatelle (a pastry filled with ricotta and candied fruit). You can also taste the local wines, such as the Costa d’Amalfi DOC, which is made from grapes grown on the steep terraces of the coast. Ravello has several restaurants, cafes, and bars where you can savour the flavours of the region. Ravello is a gem of the Amalfi Coast, a place where you can experience the beauty, history, and culture of Italy. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a cultural adventure, or a relaxing holiday, Ravello has something for everyone.
