Yet, the main attraction lies amongst the sprawling stretches of lemon groves, vineyards and manicured gardens, Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo, growing in profusion. Its alternative name, ‘City of Music’, is aptly suited for its role in hosting music festivals in the Villa Rufolo terrace, the Annunziata Historic Building and Ravello Art Centre each summer.
