Ravello

Poised on a ridge high above Amalfi and the neighboring town of Atrani, enchanting Ravello has stupendous views, quiet lanes, two important Romanesque churches, and several irresistibly romantic gardens. Set "closer to the sky than the sea," according to André Gide, the town has been the ultimate aerie ever since it was founded as a smart suburb for the richest families of Amalfi's 12th-century maritime republic. Rediscovered by English aristocrats a century ago, Ravello now hosts one of Italy's most famous music festivals.
