The Hotel Caruso Ravello was originally built as a palace in the 11th century by the patrician D'Afflitto family from Rome.
Hotel Caruso Ravello is a 5 Star Luxury Hotel and a member of The Leading Hotels of the World with 23 Rooms, 17 Junior Suites & 5 Suites. Many social and cultural luminaries included Greta Garbo, Gina Lollobrigida, Jackie Kennedy, Margot Fonteyn and Humphrey Bogart. Its hilltop position, 365 meters above sea level, ensures long hours of sunshine, breathtaking views and a high level of peace and quiet. Situated 350 metres above the sea, perched on a craggy cliffside, Ravello commands the ultimate panorama over the Amalfi coast, a magical location that the French poet, Andre Gide, evocatively described as "between the sky and the sea". Ravello sits high up on the mountains which line the Amalfi coast, on the headpoint of two deep valleys, and there is only one place to begin your visit - the immaculate ornamental gardens of the thirteenth century Villa Rufolo. This garden of perfectly laid-out flower beds, lush Mediterranean vegetation, palm trees and fountains, tapers off at a vast 'terrazzo' that offers an unparalled vista along the coast and out over the deep-blue sea, though don't look down if you don't have a head for heights as the drop is breathtakingly sheer.
