Things To Do

Villa Rufolo

Villa Rufolo

1 Piazza Duomo, Ravello, Campania 84010, Italy
, +39 089 857621

One of the most popular travel destinations on the Amalfi Coast in southern Italy’s region of Campania. The Villa Rufolo and its beautiful gardens date back to the 13th-century, when they were built for the wealthy and prominent Rufolo family. This family held court in their extensive villa, which at one point was noted as having “more rooms than there are days in a years.” The fate of the Rufolo family, like many wealthy merchant families, followed the ups and downs of the Republic of Amalfi. As the wealth of the family declined in the late Middle Ages, the villa was sold to other families in Ravello, and over the centuries many of the fine buildings fell into a date of disrepair. The Villa Rufolo was bought in the 19th century by the wealthy Scottish industrialist Francis Neville Reid, who restored and altered much of the villa. Fortunately, there are still many elements of the striking medieval architecture still to be seen while strolling through the gardens of the Villa Rufolo.

Must have lunch here! Visit not just for the food, but for the wonderful atmosphere and warm hugs from "Mama" (The owner, "Classic Italian" Grandma, who walks around the restaurant in her apron making sure everyone is eating their food!). Mama makes sure you don't leave hungry, always bringing out more and more food for you to "taste". Mangia!!

Gardens of Villa Cimbrone

26 Via Santa Chiara, Ravello, Campania 84010, Italy
, +39 089 857459

Obviously.... our favorite "thing to do" in Ravello- walking the stunning gardens of Villa Cimbrone (well worth the 10 minute up-hill walk, trust us, you won't be sorry). But don't worry, you will see all of the gardens of Villa Cimbrone on our wedding day, so "save the best for last"! We've got you covered...

Atrani & Amalfi

Atrani & Amalfi

Atrani, Campania 84010, Italy

There are hiking paths all over Ravello. It is fun to "get lost" in the winding streets and small villages that look like they have been stuck in time. One of our favorite days was taking the walking path all the way down from Ravello and visiting the small coastal villages of Atrani and Amalfi (you've got to check out the Duomo in Amalfi). Spend the day walking around and bring your bathing suit. Have lunch at Le Arcate (in Atrani)... and then go jump in the refreshing Tyrrhenian Sea after! The hike back up wasn't as much fun as it was on the way down (partly due to the fact that Johnny thought he was taking a "short cut", however we ended up on dirt hiking paths lost on the side of a mountain). There are plenty of taxi's available in Atrani and Amalfi that you can take back up to Ravello (a 5 minute drive)....or just make sure you wear appropriate shoes for the hike back up!

Capri

Capri

Capri, Campania 80076, Italy

Capri is one of our favorite places on earth. The magic of Capri comes out at night, once the crowds and tourists have all left for the day. We suggest spending at least two nights on Capri- doing a day trip can feel quite crowded and overwhelming. Capri can be reached via Ferry or private boat transfer. If you don't have time to spend a couple nights in Capri, then try to do a boat tour for the day...head over to Capri and tour by sea- and jump in the famous "Blue Grotto"! Here are some of our favorite places on Capri... Favorite Hotel: Capri Tiberio Palace Favorite Restaurant: Ristorante Panorama Capri (ask for "Chip-Chip"- and be ready to try some of his homemade Grappa) Favorite Activities: La Fontelina Beach Club (make a reservation in advance); Anacapri (located on the other side of the island- take the chair lift to the top of the mountain for the most incredible views!)
