Beautiful villa perched atop the cliffs of Amalfi, this is a great place to visit. It is peaceful and quiet in comparison to other parts of Salerno. The views are spectacular and the layout of the villa is full of surprises.

This place is magical! I'm so happy I listened to my friend and visited this wonderful villa. The views are breathtaking and the exhibition is wonderful, they had a collection of pictures about music with well known artist of all timesthat fit perfectly the place. I was moved by the energy in this area, fantastic!

The trip by local SITA bus up the tortuous mountain road to the beautiful village of Ravello is just the start of the adventure, particularly if you time your visit to coincide with the world class Ravello Music Festival with runs from July to September. The ruined Villa Rufolo, dating back to the thirteenth century, with its delightful gardens and... More

Very picturesque walk through the gardens . This was by far my favourite town in On the Amalie coast. Also a great place for an espresso on the square and great views .

We visited Villa Rufolo when our ship docked in Salerno. We had booked a whole day with Ravello Taxis. Our driver was Salvatore. What a wonderful trip it was. He took us to Villa Rufolo and despite the intense heat, we had an amazing day. The gardens are so beautiful and everywhere you look, the scenery is so gorgeous you... More

This property has a beautiful, well tended garden and an attractive villa but the view from the terraces is what one visits this site for. It is magnificent and world famous and takes in the majestic mountain, Maiori and the Gulf of Salerno. Wagner lived here for a time and classical music concerts are held here annually. To attend one... More

Not sure how the small columns hold all this weight but after more than 800 years it seems to work. Don't miss this stop. Composer Robert Wagner apparently visited this villa in 1880 and I'm sure he did not regret it.

It's 5 euro. The villa has a wonderful view of the mountains, and the garden is beautiful as well. The architecture is nothing particularly special.

The villa itself, while steeped in history, isn't especially remarkable to look at, but the views from the terrace are spectacular. I imagine watching a concert here is spectacular, so if the opportunity arises, I'd definitely recommend it.

This historic Villa puts on a yearly sound and light show of world class standard. The historic show features visual and audio that take visitors on a wondrous journey through time. We liked it so much we returned the next night. Be careful to choose the time of year the show is on if you want to see the production.... More
