Last weekend I was walking in Ravello and passed through a walkway that leads in one place between and under part of the beautiful gardens of the Villa Rufolo. I could smell the sweet scent of wisteria as I climbed a steep staircase, and as I reached the top was welcomed by this beautiful trellis of blooming wisteria. It wasn’t quite at peak, but it was close enough to fill the surrounding area with sweetness. It was an ideal spot to stop and catch my breath after the long climb!
Happy weekend to everyone!

Again, I love seeing Italy via your post/blog~ where is Ravello from Naples? I am so putting this area on my “things to see list”~
I can almost smell the flowers here in your picture~
Thanks, Sharon! From Naples you could take the Autostrada to the Angri exit and then follow the signs to the Chiunzi Pass and the Amalfi Coast. The pass will take you up over the mountains and there are signs to Ravello. It’s a pretty easy drive compared to your last adventures to Positano! 🙂

I also love wisteria Laura, so enjoyed seeing this post and the one on wisteria wonderland in Positano.
Thanks, Linda! I fell in love with wisteria in Washington, DC, and was so happy to see it grows everywhere here in the spring. It blooms pretty much before everything else here, so it always makes it feel like spring has arrived!

Ciao, Laura. I received your name from Eleonora on her food tour we took last week. We are now in Atrani and I am curious if you have any restaurant recommendations for Atrani or Amalfi? Thanks!
PS: I think we walked by this exact same spot in Positano today and had to snap a picture. Thanks for the inspiration!

Correction: similar spot in Positano.
Ciao Jake! Thank you so much for stopping by. Eleonora is lovely, and I’m so happy you could take her Rome food tour. I’m envious! 🙂 Just emailed you with some restaurant recommendations for Atrani and Amalfi.
Love it Laura … I have a fantastic photo of my cousin and I in Italy last week .. the Wisteria is wonderful ♥
Ciao Anne! I saw that photo of you and your cousin under the wisteria on Facebook … stunning!! So very happy that you could visit your cousins in Italy. Come down my way next time! 🙂
