I know i said before i love Positano so very much, but i do adore Ravello as well. This is the second nicest place along the Amalfi Coast, although Ravello is not lying directly by the water, but far up in the mounatins. Therefore it has a character on its own. Being  the center for culture, music and arts, one will find the atmosphere more calm and creative. There are indeed a lot of tourists, but it is not as crowded and buzzing as the places by the sea.


How to get here:
You can easily go to Ravello by Bus from the central station in Amalfi. One ride will cost you 1,20€ and takes approximately 20min. Otherwise it is easy to reach by car. 

What to do:
Ravello is to be honest fairly small, so i spent half a day here only. There are two main attractions, apart from the church and the center of the town.
Villa Rufolo (7€) - The Villa with original layout of 13th century is known as inspiration for musicians, poets and famous for its beauty.This is not suprising, once you visited, you will always keep this place in your heart. While strolling through the gardens, you can hear the faint sound of classical music from hidden speakers and forget all the bad things happening around the world.
The Villa can also be visited from the inside, the view from the balcony onto the gardens is just.. see for yourself

Villa Cimbrone (7€) - While the Villa Rufolo is fully open, Villa Climbrone is a today a Hotel and mostly famous for the Infinity Terrace, built on the edge of the mountain, surrounded by famous sculptures. Also this place has been scene for the Sissi Movie with Romy Schneider. She is recommended to do a retreat in Maderia, while the actual place was above mentioned terrace.
During my stay most of the flowers had already bloomed, but nevertheless a stroll trough the gardens is worth your time.
