Belmond Hotel Caruso
Located on the highest point of Ravello, Belmond Hotel Caruso is perched on a cliff top 1150ft above the sea level overlooking the spectacular Mediterranean of the Amalfi Coast. Naples International Airport Capodichino (NAP) is approximately 50-min from the Hotel Caruso. Ferry boats to Capri and Ischia can be taken from Amalfi or Sorrento. Moreover, Hotel Caruso was awarded the #7, Top 10 Resorts in Europe, by Travel + Leisure 2009 World’s Best Awards.
It is the ideal site to base yourself for exploring a unique landscape that has inspired the likes of composers Richard Wagner and Edward Grieg, the painters William Turner and Miro, and authors, D.H. Lawrence, Tennessee Williams and Gore Vidal, who still spends part of each year here. Greta Garbo successfully sought refuge from the maddening crowds and prying paparazzi in Ravello, and ever since, it has become a favorite haven for Hollywood stars.

Down in the centre of Ravello, there is plenty more cultural sight-seeing, and not be missed is the intricate 11th century Cathedral. Since the early 1950s, Ravello has hosted the celebrated Wagnerian Music Festival in July in the grounds of the Villa Rufolo, to commemorate the composer's love for Ravello and the inspiration that he derived from the Villa Rufolo for the second act of Parsifal. Villa Rufolo is a magnificent medieval villa surrounded by extensive gardens, the exotic oriental plants and fountains frame an excellent view over the jagged peaks and the distant Maiori Bay.
