Day trip to Ravello- Worth it?

First trip to Italy and wonder if Ravello is worth a day trip? We are staying in Sorrento. Thank you for any responses.

Ravello was one of my best day trips in the Amalfi - I did it from Sorrento - by bus - thrilliing Amalfi Coast buses though in season I think you could go by boat - maybe go one way and come back the other - Amalfi is the town under perched up high Ravello - Amalfi to me was a really sweet town so both of these make a spectacular day trip.

I walked up from Amalfi along a paved path that yes went up but fairly gradually until a last stepped part if I redclal correctly - a lovely walk thru orchards and small garden plots and Ravello s a nice old town but the best thing to me was the sweeping vistas over the entire Amalfi Coast far below.

I walked down from Ravlelo a different way - on zigzagging roads thru vineyards - with front sea views the whole way. Magnificent. If not into walking there are frequent buses to Ravello from Amalfi.

Thank you for the detailed response. Is there much to do in the town? Also, how long is the trip by bus?
