This is Ravello, another one of the towns we've visited. Unlike most of the other towns which are located right on the coast, Ravello is on top of a small mountain making it a torturous drive to get there. This map shows the convoluted road network. That's why the second time we visited we stayed in Ravello instead of making the daily drive even though it was only about 10 miles from the hotel we like so much in Praiano.(Looking from Ravello down to the coast. From Google Images. Rest of pictures are from our trips.)
Your first assignment is getting to Ravello which can be a challenge. Here's a tip - fold in your side view mirrors. These photos are of the main road - not a side street. I just thought of another tip - make sure you get damage coverage on your rental car - take my word on this one.

We stayed at the Hotel Graal.

We've haven't even gotten to the best part of the town yet - the villas - which we'll cover in a separate post. Let's start walking towards the Villa Cimbrone and stop at a little cafe for a drink first.
