Villa Rufolo

Highly recommended
This was the residence of the most powerful family in Ravello. It is grandiose with massive towers, yet delicate with a Sicilian-Norman style cloister opening onto superb gardens laid out in terraces above the sea. The panoramic view is marvellous, and one can understand how Wagner, who wrote Parsifal here, was so inspired! This stage-set above the sea hosts summer concerts under the stars. A magical setting!
