21 August, 2014: The Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful regions of Italy, and Ravello is a popular place for tourists staying in Amalfi villas to visit. Although it has a number of attractions for tourists to visit, one of the main events of the year is the Ravello Festival, which is currently being held in the town until the end of September.
A festival of fun, music and colour
The Ravello music festival is one of the most prestigious in the country. It has been held in the town for decades, and features orchestras, classical music and jazz, as well as ballet, exhibitions and film. Performances are held in a range of outdoor venues, with the most famous being the Villa Rufolo gardens. The beautiful coastal setting and the warm summer weather make it a stunning and romantic place to enjoy the outdoor performances.
The festival begins in June every year, lasting right through until the end of September, making this a very popular time for tourists booking Amalfi villas. However, the classical music programme lasts even longer – starting in March and continuing through until October. This programme features a wide range of Italian musicians and international artists, and is one of the most popular in the country.
Ravello itself is a popular place with those who stay in Amalfi villas in the various destinations along the coast. It has been attracting visitors for many years, and tourists in search of a picturesque and historic town will find it the perfect place to base themselves or simply pay a visit to.
Ravello is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and there are many attractions for tourists in the historic town. The Duomo is one of the most popular sites along with another historic building, the 13th century Villa Rufolo. There are also a number of very pleasant gardens to explore, including those in Villa Cimbrone.
