Recently, I’ve been writing about one of my favorite towns on the Amalfi Coast over at CharmingItaly.com – 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.
Ciao John! Thanks for stopping by and introducing me to your blog, Going Places. Enjoyed my read while I was there! 🙂

Atrani is my FAVORITE town in southern Italy!
Ciao Toma! I love Atrani, too. Especially in the summer when the beach is quieter and the piazza is cool!
Stumbled on your blog post through Delicious. You already know I am subscribing to your rss feed.
Beautiful shot. Very intriguing.
Thanks, Linda! I took it last summer one day when we rented a little boat and puttered up and down the coastline. It’s so much fun to see the coastline from the other side!
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!
Have a fabulous trip, Tom! I’ve seen photos of Pisciotta and it looks so beautiful. Enjoy the drive and wonderful views!
