Great views from this Villa, but they were still preparing for the concerts, so everywhere a bit messy as they were planting lots of flowers and building the stage, plus the villa, part of it is in restoration! Like someone said before, a one time thing.

My wife and I were here on a guided tour with 34 others. This stop was along our way to our stop, Maiori. The views, from what we could see, was magnificent. The gardens were beautiful, in full bloom. The square, right outside, had the Duomo, and plenty of shops worth meandering around, very interesting and relaxing.

Lovely romantic villa & gardens would have given it five stars if the gardens had been finished. They were building a stage for music concerts over the sea & still in the process of planting the flowers.

There were lovely views, & there were some lovely photo opportunities, including the twin trees & domed roof that seems to feature in so many of Ravello's art/ceramics. I'm glad we visited here first, before we went to Villa Cimbrone. I enjoyed both villas, but perhaps Cimbrone a little more.

I remember being enchanted by the gardens at Villa Rufolo when I last visited 20 years ago. They are still lovely but the villa is being restored at present (a good thing) and much is covered with screens and scaffolding which does spoil things a bit. Even worse is that workmen were installing the vast stage ans seating for the... More

Villa Rufolo offers great views of the Amalfi Coast and gorgeous gardens. If you have to choice, I think the views from Villa Cimbrone are better and it's larger with more to do, but Rufolo is still quite nice.

So you make the arduous climb to ravello, you see the nice piazza, you go through the serene gardens of villa cimbrone and then you will inevitably come to villa rufolo and just as you thought you had enough views of the coast a whole new,beautiful prospect opens up. I felt rejuvenated and so happy there. The villa is accessed... More

It could've been better if it wasn't under restoration... but the photos I've seen are really well captured to have made me love to go there in the first place. If you have the luxury of time then you can drop by and visit, but if not, just spend most of your time in Positano and it would be a... More
