Top 15 things to do in Ravello

1. Villa Cimbrone Gardens

One of the highlights of Villa Cimbrone Gardens is the Terrace of Infinity, a natural balcony with 18th-century marble busts and views of the sea, lemon groves, and mountains. As you walk through gardens of this historic villa, you'll wander past oak, alder, and chestnut trees. Make your way down to the natural cave that is home to a 19th-century marble statue of Eve. Walk up the stairway to the rose gardens to breathe in the scent of French and English roses. Look for the inscription quoting poet Omar Khayyám. Latch on to a guide at the entrance if you want to see all the sculptures and learn their stories.

2. Villa Rufolo

Renowned for its moonlight concerts, Villa Rufolo was built in the 13th century for a wealthy local family. The villa is famed for its cascading gardens, which were created in 1853 by Francis Neville Reid, a Scotsman who bought the property and not only took care of its restoration, but also designed the current layout. The gardens are known for their luxurious flower beds, which blossom in bursts of exotic colors throughout the year, as well as for offering panoramic views of the world-famous Amalfi Coast. German composer Richard Wagner visited the villa in 1880 and was so overcome by the attractiveness of the location that he later used it as a setting in of one of his operas. Check the official website for an accurate list of all upcoming concerts and other events at this site.

5. Duomo di Sant'Andrea, Amalfi

Remodeled many times since the ninth century, Duomo di Sant'Andrea is home to the Crypt of St. Andrew. Two crosses--one a 13th-century wooden crucifix, the other mother of pearl brought from the Holy Land--represent two different periods in the cathedral's history. The bronze doors of the church were cast in the city of Constantinople before 1066, making them the city's earliest architectural feature of post-Roman manufacture. Visit the gardens, where arches, colonnades, and sculptures blend in with the colorful landscaping.

15. Cappella Sant'Angelo all'Ospedale

Nestled halfway between the town's historical center and Piazza Fontana Moresca, Cappella Sant'Angelo all'Ospedale remains worth a visit thanks to its beautiful marble work. Small and modest from the outside, the church dates as far back as the 11th century when it served as a resting place for pilgrims visiting the hospital. The adjacent four-story bell tower is a later addition. Notice the geometric decoration of the sidewalls, a small 13th-century pulpit resting on intricately designed white marble columns, and the altar fresco of the Madonna with Child from the 19th century. A series of apsidal niches, to the right of the altar, lead into the sacristy.
