I read before I went that Jackie Kennedy said that Ravello was "the most beautiful place on earth". She would know - and she was right. The Hotel Caruso Ravello is the most beautiful place at the most beautiful place on earth. The moment we arrived, my husband was almost speechless. The hotel stretches across the view so there is literally a view from every room that faces the amalfi coast. The gardens, the pool, the tranquility and the views - - were the best in all of Italy (that we visited). The food was amazing at the hotel (pricey) but amazing. One day we picked up sandwhiches from the charming town of Ravello and took them back to the room to save money. BUT, the infinity pool, rooms facing the ocean, gardens, views - must be taken in if you are even remotely close to the Amalfi Coast in Italy. We were supposed to stay only 2 nights - but it was so amazing, we knew we couldn't do better after three weeks in Italy - so we stayed our last four nights there. The hotel was very accomodating to our changes and did everything they could to make it work - and make us happy.
