Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: If you get lost at some point just ask around, people is friendly and they are willing to help. Some speak English. Also there are music festivals in Ravello, so get informed and you can have an spectacular holidays!

Liked: A fantastic small Italian town! You can have great typical food followed by delicious ice cream, walking around the town and getting lost in the small charming streets. Or also you can have an espresso with the amazing ocean's view. It is so relaxing. If you enjoy trekking, also is possible to reach other charming towns by foot. To our surprise even on Eastern Sunday there was transportation (less often as usual) and restaurants open.

Disliked: Nothing! We would love to come back but this time for longer time.

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Book into one of the villages nearby if you want to escape the crowds - the village of Atrani, particularly, is an easy short walk (or bus ride) into Amalfi, but not nearly as packed or touristy!

Liked: Stunningly beautiful place, great food and drink, within reach of a lot of fascinating places.

Disliked: Bit of a tourist honeypot, and getting from there to other places a bit of a challenge due to the nature of the roads/terrain.
