At the time under going some restoration work. We first saw the villa by night as the venue for the fantastic Ravello Music Festival and decided to return during the day to see the gardens and villa.

Loved the gardens and the magical concert by the Berlin Philharmonic Celloists overlooking the sea from the great height. The Musical Festival holds special events in the Villa's gardens and one passes through parts of the old villa to arrive there.

Villa Rufulo is an experience of beauty and peace. It is relatively small but the entrance fee of 5 euros is very reasonable. Time seems to stand still here and it is possible to while away the time just soaking up the beauty and history of the site. At once Roman and then Moorish there is something other-wordly about the... More

The villa is amazing, definitely worth the visit! We had our aperitivo in the bar of the hotel next to the villa and we watched the concert as well for free! The scenery is beautiful and combined with the music is pure magic!

Not as big a Chambrone Gardens but also very beautiful! I could have spent weeks there just soaking up all of the beauty of Ravello!

We took a drive from Furore along the winding, climbing roads to Ravello where we visited the Villa Rufolo. There was hardly anyone there, which allowed us to enjoy the peaceful setting and the absolutely fabulous views of the Amalfi beaches below.

I was unlucky enough to visit the place in the middle of a cruise ship excursion in the area, which did not create the right environment. The environment is lovely, although the historical interest is limited. The view however is mesmerising.

There's a lot of work going on but the gardens are lovely with lots of places to enjoy the incredible vistas. Interesting history and a nice place to enjoy a peaceful afternoon.
