Our “Picture Perfect” Day in Ravello on the Amalfi Coast of Italy

A View from Villa Ciambrone Gardens

Just one of so many beautiful views from Villa Ciambrone gardens in Ravello, Italy

In my last post, I featured photos of my families fantastic day touring the Amalfi Coast by private boat hire out of Positano.  Today, I’m going to show you photos of my next favorite day of our incredible week long stay in Positano, Italy.

This would be the day we spent in Ravello. The entire Amalfi Coast is spectacularly beautiful and Ravello is no exception; in fact, it is rather “the icing on the cake.”   What makes Ravello so remarkable is it’s height; Ravello sits very high above sea level and therefore benefits from the most phenomenal Mediterranean vista’s I have ever seen. Couple those views with cobblestone, beautiful architecture, and flowers galore and it indeed becomes the making of a beautiful photo, or lots of beautiful photos, as you will see.  

I am a great lover of beautiful gardens, and I seek them out wherever I go.  Ravello is home to two wonderful gardens.  On this trip to Ravello, we explored the garden of Villa Ciambrone and I fell in love, just as I had fallen on a prior trip to Ravello’s Villa Rufulo garden many years before.  Take a look…

    You are right about Ravello being the hidden treasure of the Amalfi Coast. I’m a bit biased as my email address will give me away, but hearing it from others time and time again I might not be that biased after all.
    Ravello is easy to remember and hard to forget.

    • It is incredible, I agree. While in Villa Ciambrone we found an amazing open air room with crystal chandeliers, baby grand piano and the most amazing views. It would be a dream location for a wedding. We keep it in the back of our minds for our daughter’s wedding one day!
