|A Wedding in Ravello is the ideal choice for an exclusive wedding in Italy. The writer Andre Gide has given a wonderful and synthetic description: "Ravello is nearer to the sky than it is to the shore".
Perched on a rocky spur 335 metres above the Sea, Ravello is like an open terrace facing the sea and offering from its dizzy heights, the spectacular view of green terraces cultivated with lemon trees declining to a sea of extraordinary colors constantly changing between deep azure and brilliant emerald.
The village has conserved its historical monuments through the ages in a natural setting which has few equals in the world: the stunning Cathedral, founded in 1086, Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo where Richard Wagner found the inspiration for the second act of Parsifal. Strict controls on vehicle entry make Ravello's narrow, cobblestone streets a delight to stroll. Orange geraniums, red roses, bougainvillea, mauve wisteria against the grey stone walls...the air and the eyes are filled with fragrance and colors.
The heart and soul of Ravello is the music.
|Wagner, Verdi, Grieg, Toscanini, Caruso, Bernstein, Kempff, Rostropovitch, stayed and worked in the harmony of Ravello. This musical vocation is still now the heart of this village and the Ravello Concert Society organizes a long season of Chamber music concerts (from March to November). The combination of scenery and music creates an atmosphere that you're unlikely to forget. If you are in Ravello you can't miss this opportunity.
A Wedding Ravello with its stunning backdrop are perfect for an intimate and romantic wedding.
