In the high season, much of the Amalfi Coast
is crowded. Ravello happily sits high above the fray, more than 1,000 feet above sea level. The Duomo Caffè, on the main piazza, faces the austere white facade of the 11th-century cathedral and is a great spot from which to observe the town. This former post office now delivers fresh pastries and expertly pulled espressos in the morning. In the mood for something else? Angela Donatantonio, one of the owners, is a master sommelier and has collected an impressive selection of wines. Take a seat, relax with a bottle of local taurasi or aglianico, and watch over the piazza.
