Tel: 39 089 858422's insider take:

The cultural draw in an area celebrated for dolce vita pleasures like eating, drinking, and sun-lounging is Ravello's classical music, arts, and literature festival. It brings a slew of world-class performers to the gardens of Villa Rufolo in July and August. The festival aims to generate unique events rather than simply book class acts. A long-standing tradition of the festival is the Dawn Concert, its 5 am start timed to coincide with the dramatic sunrise over the sea below. Outside of the main festival period, the Ravello Concert Society organizes a worthwhile season of classical concerts and recitals in Villa Rufolo and other atmospheric locations.—Lee Marshall
