Ravello was an important town of the Maritime Republic of Amalfi, an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and around 1200. The town has served historically as a destination for artists, musicians, and writers, including Richard Wagner, Giovanni Boccaccio, Virginia Woolf, Gore Vidal, and Sara Teasdale who mentioned it in her prefatory dedication in Love Songs, one of her many books of poems. Every year in the summer months, the "Ravello Festival" takes place. It began in 1953 in honour of Richard Wagner.
Our limo drivers suggest...
When you arrive in the town book an excursion to visit Villa Cimbrione, famous for its Terrace of the Infinite where the view is magnificent. The most valid reason for choosing a chauffeur, driven car, is not only the drivers professional service, but also the comfort to enjoy a so such beautiful area, without any parking problems. Others important main sights are the cathedral and Villa Rufolo (1270), this one was built by Nicola Rufolo, one of the richest men of the town, and it has become a famous attraction for thousands of visitors. The villa was mentioned by Giovanni Boccaccio in his Decameron. We also suggest an other interesting option which is to visit Ravello coast to coast by car or limousine, departing from Positano, then through Amalfi and finally stopping in Ravello.
