Atrani and Ravello from Sea

Recently, I’ve been writing about one of my favorite towns on the Amalfi Coast over at – Ravello! While looking through my photos, this one that I took last summer while out on a boat caught my attention. You can see the beautiful little town of Atrani, and, high above, the very tip of the promontory where Ravello sits. That white house clinging to the cliffside is the Villa La Rondinaia, meaning Swallow’s Nest, which was owned for many years by Gore Vidal. Follow the line of trees up to the left and you’ll see the Villa Cimbrone’s stunning Terrace of Infinity. I’ve stood on that terrace looking out to the sea so many times, but it’s fun to see it from the other side! To read more and see more photographs, I invite you to read my articles on Ravello and on the Villa Cimbrone on Charming Italy!

  • Great photo! Wouldn’t mind sitting in one of those terraces to have a cup of coffee and people-watch right below.

    Great shot! Will be heading to the area next week to spend a week in Pisciotta. We want to head south from Rome along the coast, your picture excites me!
