We had read so much about Villa Rufolo so didn't want to miss it. The gardens were beautiful and the views even more wonderful than promised. A wonderful mix of Greek/ Arab/ and Italian structures. We are glad we did this but felt that it was a lot of money for what we saw.

the villa is not very interesting except a small exhibition on the best napolitan designers. The garden has a beautiful view different from that seen from villa cimbrone

The Villa Rufolo right off the main square in Ravello is definitely worth a visit. Charming gardens and interesting villa, and if you are a photographer you must capture the iconic postcard and calendar view over the Amalfi coast with the twin church spires, from the Belvedere Terrace.

Even at a small 5 euros, don't waste your money. Just down the road, a short 10 minute walk is Villa Cimbrone, this one is 7 euros entry fee and so much more amazing!

Well worth a visit to this historic and currently cultural highlight of Ravello. We visited as part of an Amalfi coast drive and found it a little peaceful sanctuary in this lovely hilltop town. The views over the Salerno bay were stunning. Well worth it's €5 entrance fee.

It's well worth the 5 Euro entry fee to explore the gardens around the Villa Rufolo. It only takes an hour at the very most to see everything but it's so hot usually that an hour is enough. The gardens themselves are pleasant if not exceptional, however the views are worth the visit as you look out onto the unbelievable... More

We visited Villa Rufolo during a visit to Ravello in May. The Villa is near the main entrance to Ravello and easy to find. The views are spectacular and the gardens are quite lovely.

You can imagine that you're one of the very first Italian inhabitants in Ravello. The gardens are very pretty and the views out over the coast are stunning. The gardens are very peaceful and it's a great way to spend an afternoon

We read all the complaints about the stage being built but decided to go anyway. Good thing we took the risk. Even with stage in place the gardens were extraordinary and the views breathtaking. As for the 5 euro entry fee, I felt it was well worth it. I know from many other reviews this is supposed to be the... More
