Ravello, Italy

View from road up to the hilltop town of Ravello.
One of the most spectacular views we had on our trip to Italy was from the hilltop town of Ravello which is 1100 feet above sea level and which provides a stunning panoramic view of the Amalfi Coast. Although it had rained that morning (September 18), the sun came out and it was a beautiful afternoon.

Ravello auditorium designed by Oscar Neimeyer.

This auditorium is built into the side of the hill on the way up to Ravello.  It was designed by Oscar Neimeyer, the famous Brazilian architect, and the white concrete auditorium is set into the hillside to blend with the natural cliffs when viewed from the sea.  It is quite a work of art.
