Apart from the views to the coast, this historic site - for this is what it really is - did not have an awful lot to offer. The old villa (museum) was in the stage of being completely renovated/rebuilt and all that one got for the entry fee was the view and a mediocre garden. Far better to take the... More

Everything the guidebooks said about the view from Villa Rufolo was true! Spectacular and beautiful! The grounds were interesting, and the gardens were starting to take shape for the season. But the view is The Thing.

We almost didn't do this. But, y know, just 5 Euros so what the heck... This technology had come a long way. A very interesting and slickly executed production that starts every 20 minutes, interspersing the history of the villa with great light effects. Great value, however little kids might not like this. You move around the villa in the... More

Near the center of the square, a historic villa and gardens. This and Villa Cimbroni are really worth seeing.

Having read reviews I wasn't going to visit but as we had 30 minutes free decided to wander through. It was disappointing due to the renovations going on which for me impacted on the experience. The view from the terrace is amazing but then this coastline is all about the views. I'm sure a guide would improve the experience. Ravello... More

We visited Villa Rufolo one beautiful early May evening. It was a little difficult to identify some of the early features with the guide, but the building was fascinating. Unfortunately, the tower was closed for renovation but this was compensated for by the gardens and the view of the coast.

Took the bus (all day 8EU ticket) to Amalfi. The bus journey is 1hr and 40 minutes of violent turns and braking. We passed through picturesque Positano and then onto Amalfi. Amalfi is pretty but with no time to waste we got another bus from Amalfi to Ravello. (30 min) The total journey time from Sorrento including waits was 2... More

I had seen many pictures of the famous tree and made it my mission to see it. We were staying in sant'agnello and paid €90 for an excursion to the Amalfi coast, including a stop in Postiano, which is gorgeous, then into Amalfi where we visited the cathedral and then round the Amalfi coasts beautiful bendy roads (the drivers are...
