Getting there is a cinch. You can take the public bus up, up and further up to Ravello. We happened to be staying in Amalfi and the bus stop was just down the road from our hotel, Luna Convento (review on the way). This is just a stunning place with terrific vistas.

The buildings and gardens of the Villa Rufolo are an attraction that should not be missed. We were there on a cloudy day, when Ravello was actually in the clouds it is so high above the coast. The muted colours and scenery were outstanding for interesting and ethereal photographs.

Our driver had recommended touring this villa right off the main square in Ravello. We spent about an hour wandering the halls and grounds and enjoying the views. Make sure you have lots of space on your camera as you will be taking lots of pictures!

The unseasonably warm weather and brilliant sunshine accentuated the well tended grounds and spectacular views of this ancient villa. The entrance is right off the town square and easily accessible.

Villa Rufolo originates to the 13th century and is a mix of Arabic, Sicilian and Norman architecture and it is quite spectacular. You don't get to see much of the interior of the villa but the grounds and gardens are extensive, making the admission fee of 5 euro worthwhile. This is the place to take great pictures of the surrounding... More

Villa Rufolo is a great place with many surprising corners and magnificent architecture and gardens. We loved the miniature waterfalls scattered across the gardens.

This was a fascinating Villa with such beautiful sculptures and architecture. It was hard to imagine people having actually lived in such a magnificent place.

.....on a sunny, Amalfi Coast day!! Worth the small entry fee, there is some history, pretty gardens and photo - worthy views to attract anyone to this hillside Villa. It is one stop on a relaxing visit you can easily make as a side trip from the town of Amalfi. Normal bus service is available to Ravello. Make sure you... More

Small admission fee of 3 euros each. Would have been more colourful earlier in the year when more flowers present. Main garden covered by staging for concert series which runs for 5 months each year. We had the identical view from our B&B however, took great pictures of the coast with umbrella pines.
