We enjoyed the terrace with its gorgeous views and modern sculpture. Not so happy to be charged to visit an empty auditorium so we didn't go inside. No refreshments available here as both cafes were shut (in October).

We were blessed to arrive in Ravello in time to attend the final performance of the Festival! Walking to the auditorium, enjoying the summer evening and coastal views, was a treat in itself. The design of the auditorium is sheer Niemeyer; the acoustics are spectacular; every seat offers an unobstructed view of the performers.

This is a terrible building that does not fit in here. Starts to show some very unpleasant patina. We did not attend an event. The exposition in the garden was nice.

Cantilevering the stage and seating the patrons on/in the hillside was an inspiration. Whether you'll like the performance, you'll probably love the stage.

Firstly, we purchased two OneSense tickets from the Duomo for €12, which covered three attractions - Villa Ruffolo, Villa Cimbrone and the Auditorium only to find we did not need a ticket to enter the Auditorium, hence ripped off €6 by a church. Last time I visited the Auditorium, there was several levels that one could access, however on this... More

The grounds at night are a strange yet beautiful mix of modern and ancient. We saw a concert there and the sound was fantastic. The view at sunset is stunning. Its an experience that's not for everyone but...if you want something totally different ask your concierge to book tickets to see a performance. There are usually shared taxi rides back... More

It sort of looks out of place, perched on the edge of the mountain amidst the medieval backdrop but, in its own way, it's quite a beautiful building. We didn't get to see a concert, but we managed to watch a dance rehearsal (which was free!). I can imagine that open air concerts on the terrace outside must be quite... More

I was lucky enough to direct a revue "Broadway in Ravello" in January 2013. This was an amazing space for our performers. The interior is beautiful--the stage can be adjusted to various levels and the view overlooking a gorgeous part of the Amalfi coast is breathtaking. There is a music festival every year--so please check it out.

No, it doesn't fit in at all with the ambient post-medieval landscape. But it's an architectural wonder anyway. For its size, its seating capacity is small. But, though this is one of his last completed works (Niemeyer lived to 105), the interior and exterior perfectly reflect all of Niemeyer's lifelong love of the curve and unexpected material form.
