Beautiful Ravello
& the Amalfi Coast

We stayed in a hotel, Hotel Parsifal, that was constructed as a monastery in the early 1100's!
It is family owned, friendly, WiFi available and fantastic!  I recommend it!

We got in late at night and this
was all I could see


And this is what I saw in the morning!

From my balcony


Also from my balcony
The blue strips are sheets of plastic to protect
the grapes & olives from hail in February


Our leader and artist, Leo Kennedy
and Ethan

Ethan & a date palm tree


Another beautiful view


Rather nice!

These folks build everywhere possible!


View from other side of my balcony


How about this view!

The group starts out on an adventure


Exterior of lobby of our hotel!


The central plaza of Ravello

The above plaque tells that the movie
Beat The Devil" with Bogart, Lollabrigita,
 Capote. etc. was shot here in this town


Another view of the Mediterranean


Dinner with the group!

And, another view


A cloudy morning


This is our hotel - my room is the one with
the arches!!

Rather picturesque


Another view of the terraces
 

Another picturesque shot

Night time in Ravello's piazza


Tough pasture!

An "artsy" view from our hotel

And another

And again

Another view


The local church


Downtown Amalfi

A rather clever fountain


Amalfi, again


And again

The central square in Amalfi


The "top" of Amalfi


Local church - you had to pay to enter!
