Grand Hotel Vesuvio, Sorrento
Ravello is a town and commune situated above the Amalfi Coast.
Ravello was an important town of the Maritime Republic of Amalfi, an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and around 1200.
The town has served historically as a destination for artists, musicians, and writers.
Every year in the summer months, the "Ravello Festival" takes place. It began in 1953 in honour of Richard Wagner.
There is an ancient legend, still recounted by tour guides in Salerno and Amalfi, that it was to Ravello, with its breathtaking view of the Mediterranean and the dramatic Amalfi coastline, that Satan transported Jesus during His second temptation to show the beauty of the world's kingdoms.
