Discover our Bed & Breakfast in Ravello
Perched on the hill that slopes towards the sea from Ravello to Amalfi, caressed by the aroma of lemons and cuddled by the slow roar of the stream that flows to its base, our Bed & Breakfast “Torre dello Ziro” (Literally translated “Ziro Tower”) is the ideal refuge for those fleeing from the bustle of everyday life in search of an intimate, intense, full of charm and historical place in Italy.
Our B&B was made by restructuring an old Italian roadhouse built in the 16th century, purchased by the current owners to make it their shelter “far enough from the chaos of Amalfi Coast, but a few steps from its places of charm and prestige”.
The house, complete with private parking, overlooks a terraced garden which offers a splendid panorama framing the actual “Torre dello Ziro” silhouette against the blue sky meeting the sea. The recent renovation on the roadhouse removed the most obvious signs of time, but let the house to maintain all the charm of his story: vaulted ceilings, a beautiful panoramic garden, hand painted majolica tiles and all the colors from Mediterranean sea, that lead guests into a timeless world.
Bed & Breakfast Torre dello Ziro is open each year from late March to the first week of October, to provide an ideal climate for your stay and meet the needs of Italian and foreign tourists, in search of warmth yet formal hospitality at more affordable prices, compared to traditional hotels in the area.

Our B&B and its surroundings
Bed and Breakfast Torre dello Ziro is located in a strategic location, halfway between the vivacity of Amalfi and the mundanity of Ravello, in Civita; near you will find other historical, archaeological and natural sites such as Positano, Capri, Pompei and Sorrento, popular Italian towns that are easily accessible by car or public transport.
In our B&B you can find a private parking lot, a garden terrace with a wonderful view over the sea, Ravello hills and the Ziro tower, whose history is intertwined with Joanna of Aragon, Ferdinand I of Aragon’s illegitimate daughter, who died around 1510. This old tower, with its cylindrical shape similar to traditional italian containers for oil and cereals, has earned the Arabic name of “Torre dello Ziro” and it’s popular for leisurely tours departing from the nearby town of Pontone and Scala.
