The villa’s Arabian style architecture was typical in the south of Italy during the Norman domination.The beautiful gardens and terrace view have mesmerized many travellers and were also the source of inspiration for classical composer Richard Wagner, who looked to his experiences at the Villa to compose his “Parsifal”. The terrace Giovanni Boccaccio mentions the villa in the “Decameron,” his famous literary work.

Next visit Villa Cimbrone, believed by many to be the most beautiful villa in Ravello. The Villa’s gardens are breathtakingly beautiful and contain a wealth “of the most beautiful flowers imaginable”.
