Amazing views over the Amalfi coast and a good place to relax just walking around the gardens, which are in excellent condition The stage for concerts was set up. I can imagine that concerts here would be amazing with such a back drop.

Amazing view over the sea and hills. Interesting place to hold exhibitions and concert. It's great that the villa is under restoration. Read about the place before visiting it. Easy access, worth the time and money to be discovered.

The gardens are lovely with beautiful old buildings, lots of enclosed courtyards with lovely flowers, fountains, and seats. Great views of the coast from many points. Only downside is that it was being set up for open-air performances which stopped you from going to some of the best terraces for views - this is all through the summer, unfortunately.

Especially during a Music concert where at night you can enjoy full-moon and a splendid view to the sea and hills.

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!
