Ravello is undoubtedly the most elegant of the small villages of the Amalfi Coast, considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
It was probably founded in the fifth century by Roman settlers who, tired of the continuous barbarian raids, took refuge on this plateau, considering it better defensible.
This small town of only 2500 inhabitants, located in the heart of the Amalfi Coast, is famous not only for its spectacular location, perched 350 meters above sea level, but also for the fact that for years it has been the favorite residence of internationally renowned artists and musicians.
The wonderful views of the sea, the vegetation and the beautiful gardens of Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone, this last venue of important classical music concerts, have inspired many artists over the years.
At Villa Rufolo, the German composer Wagner in 1880, found inspiration in writing his opera Parsifal and stated that "The Magic Garden of Klingsor has been found".
