Ravello – Arrive in Naples and Transfer to the Beauty of the Amalfi Coast
Ravello is considered a window to the sky and sits in the mountains that border the Amalfi Coast. The stunning coastal views and marvelous history offer an indelible romantic atmosphere accentuated by the quiet luxuries. Your private transfer will greet you at Naples International Airport and escort you around the Bay of Naples. The gorgeous colors of the Tyrrhenian Sea glow turquoise and indigo against the cliffs and beaches of the Amalfi Coast, and you will likely be able to see the distant shores of Capri as you wind along the famous roadway. Enjoy the views as you travel the 25 miles between the town of Positano in the west and Vietri sul Mare in the east.
Upon reaching the town on the ridge, you will quickly agree with the famous composer Richard Wagner, who once said Ravello was the closest place to heaven. The Cathedral was erected in the 11th century and continues to crown the main plaza, Piazza Vescovado. The town sits at nearly 2,000 feet above sea level, which accounts for the ample views over the spectacular Amalfi Coast. After taking a moment to settle into the comforts of your luxurious hotel, you will have the remainder of the day to enjoy the pleasures of the town. Venture to Villa Cimbrone, which crowns the cliff with elements that date back to the 11th century and are the perfect introduction to Italy’s romance and passion on your unforgettable escape. Stroll hand-in-hand along the Terrace of Infinity, where marble busts decorate the banister that leads to the blend of azure waters and bright blue sky.

The villas continue to pepper the landscape that overlooks the famous sea stacks away from the cobbled lanes of the towns.
En route to Rome, you can visit the marvelous Caserta Palace, which rivals Versailles in France for its grand halls, elaborate design, and garden adorned with fountains and waterfalls. Stop for a wander through the Gardens of Ninfa, and you will find a pastoral setting brought to life in the brush growing over the medieval ruins.

In the afternoon, you will enter Vatican City for an intimate tour of the museums that house papal apartments, lavish statues, and delicate masterpieces, including Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.
