Ravello

Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Campania  /  Amalfi Coast  /  Ravello
Ravello is a town and comune situated above the Amalfi Coast in the province of Salerno, Campania, southern Italy, with approximately 2,500 inhabitants. Its scenic location makes it a popular tourist destination, and earned it a listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.HistoryRavello was founded in the 5th century as a shelter place against the barbarian invasions which marked the end of the Western Roman Empire.In the 9th century Ravello was an important town of the maritime Republic of Amalfi.It was a producer of wool from its surrounding country that was dyed in the town and an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and around 1200.In 1086. at the request of the Italo-Norman count Roger Borsa, who wished to create a counterweight to the powerful Duchy of Amalfi, Pope Victor III made Ravello the seat of a diocese immediately subject to the Holy See, with territory split off from that of the archdiocese of Amalfi. Early on, the bishops of Ravello all came from patrician families of the city, showing the church's municipalised character.In the 12th century, Ravello had some 25,000 inhabitants, and it retains a number of palazzi of the mercantile nobility, the Rufolo, d'Aflitto, Confalone, and Della Marra. In 1137, after a first failed attack two years before, the Duchy was destroyed by the Republic of Pisa. After this, a demographic and economic decline set in, and much of its population moved to the Naples and its surroundings in the Kingdom of Naples.

Where to stay in Ravello

Most accommodations in Ravello remain small but cozy bed and breakfasts housed in buildings typical of the area. Almost every street in town abounds with options, although the absolute heart of town--around Duomo Ravello--represents the most popular place to stay. If you want to enjoy Ravello's iconic seaside views and don't mind a steep uphill walk to get to the center of town, stay at one of the hotels lining the zigzagging Via Giovanni Boccaccio.
