Perched high above the Amalfi coastline, little Ravello is like a small slice of heaven, a perfect location for romantic destination weddings with its breathtaking vistas. Accessible only after a circuitous ascent by car or bus, the main attraction of this small and ancient town, isolated from much of the hubbub of modern Italy, is the golden opportunity to relax in its intimate and unhurried atmosphere.
The town has always been a favorite spot for artists and writers: here Richard Wagner took inspiration for the plot and stage design of his opera Parsifal. Greta Garbo flew to Ravello for her secret romance with musician Leopold Stokowski.
This small town is an important historic and cultural centre, and the location for the internationally attended Ravello Music Festival, which takes place annually from March to December. Across the main piazza the mystical and romantic Villa Rufolo with its immaculately kept gardens is a delight to wander around, the perfect place to absorb the calm and peaceful atmosphere.
Ravello is one of the most requested locations for elegant and refined destination weddings on the Amalfi Coast. We strongly recommend couples considering a large wedding to start the whole organization a year in advance, in order to find availability in the nicest venues and be able to accommodate their family and friends in centrally located hotels.
