Was there last June (2015). We had to pay five euros to get in, and were done with our visit in 10 minutes. The view of the sea was gorgeous, but there was some sort of construction going on, and there wasn't much to see other than that. Gardens were ok. Less vibrant than I expected for this time of...

A bit run down and not very interesting or well-kept plants. I was a trifle disappointed. Anyhow, it is close to the town center so an easy option. Go to the Cimbrone Gardens instead.

Wonderful villa Ruffolo is located few steps from the main square of Ravello, in a historic building. Many artists visited this villa during time, for example, the composer Wagner. I liked the old tower and the cloister, but sea view is really amazing. A music festival takes place here in summer in the open. From the bus station of Amalfi,... More

For view of gardens and the Amalfi Coast this is the place. It is a good place for wedding shots or special occasions. Beautiful gardens, trees, towels and much more. Open at 09:00 - 17:00.

This is the home of the famous Ravello Music Festival and it does not disappoint. I only wish I had been able to attend a concert while visiting here. The setting is not to be believed. You feel as though you are sitting in the heavens and I can only imagine how fantastic it is when the music is playing.... More

The bones of the garden structure are here but too many of the structural year-round plantings have been neglected. The building is well maintained and the views are preserved. We were disappointed

Villa Rufolo was an absolute delight to visit. The building itself has not completely been restored, and it's not possible to see much of the interior, but what you can see is well worth the visit. We finally got the photograph we were after, ie the Amalfi coastline taken through the domed structures from the gardens - a photograph that... More

The villa is situated in a wonderful setting. It includes both buildings especially gardens. The buildings are beautifully decorated and furnished. The gardens are well maintained and the views are wonderful.

I visited here in late November. The gardens were still beautiful and the views breathtaking. It was a small fee to enter but I think it was worth it. I imagine in the summer the gardens are fabulous.

We had dinner at Villa Rufolo at July 2015. Food, wine and service were excellent, but the best was the view! Ravello Music Festival 2015 was at the same time, so it was lovely to have dinner and listen to music at the same time.
