Wandering to Ravello, Italy


Ravello, Italy, what a truly wonderful, long-lasting memory.  To get there from Sorrento (where we were staying) took two ferries and a bus up a mountain through some of the most amazing scenery I have ever seen.  The trip there and back is worthy of 2 more posts, including the drive back to Sorrento from Amalfi  on the famous Amalfi Coast highway.  For now we concentrate on Ravello.  The drive up the mountain to the town is absolutely beautiful.  The vistas of the Mediterranean are amazing, the view of the town from below, picture postcard perfect.  The views along the road are amazing as well.  We were only able to spend a few hours here as schedules would not allow us more time.  This was unfortunate as it was definitely worth an overnight stay.  Absolutely breathtaking at every turn.

The following are some shots looking out at the countryside from the town.

A pretty nice place to have a bite

The famous ceramics of the region are made here (some anyway)

  1. Now you are killing me. I always wanted to go to Italy.

  2. You’ve sold me! Absolutely stunning!

  3. Hi,
    Fantastic photos, looks like it was a lovely trip.

    Why do all the truly beautiful places have to be so difficult to get to? I guess that’s what keeps them looking beautiful – no tourists. I’d love to visit these out of the way places. Great pictures.

  5. Beautiful, and great pics. How much of the town exists outside of ceramics and tourism?

  6. Ravello is easy to remember and hard to forget.
