Beautiful gardens

Impressive and interesting villa. The gardens are exceptionally beautiful. Designed, shaped and decorated artistically. Full of colors. Worth visiting.

Just like villa Cimbrone, this is a must visit place, it has its own style, more rudimentary than villa Cimbrone but views of its own and flower gardens. Visit Rufolo 1st, then go to Cimbrone.

The scenery is breathtaking. A photographers paradise. The gardens are well maintained and full of colour. A perfect place to visit whilst in the beautiful village of Ravello

This is a very beautiful villa, with beautiful views. The views are worth the trip alone, and the only thing that would have made it better would be visiting when they were having a concert. This can be a pretty quick stop.

A beautiful site with ancient cloisters that are wonderful to photograph. You need 30 minutes maximum to see it.

The extensive work being undertaken means that a great deal of the building is covered in scaffolding. There is no reduction in the entrance price to reflect this. The gardens that are still accessible were disappointing in April. The planting seems unimaginative...a poor copy of the white garden at Sissinghurst in England, but the Rufallo one is all petunias.

We visited in April and flowers had not begun to bloom so the gardens were very average - the views were something else - absolutely spectacular. Purchasing the multiple ticket from the Museum in the main square will cost you 12 Euro and get you into 4 or 5 (depending on what is available) attractions - a much better way... More

Very pretty and well looked after garden also of course amazing views. You only need half an hour to an hour to visit I would say - unless you are a photographer. I think it was about 6euros each entrance fee

If you see it first you will enjoy the view but let us face it Villa Cimbrone is 10 times more beautiful.
