A lovely villa built centuries ago with fabulous views. If you only visit one place make it here!
The villa itself has little furniture in it and only a few rooms are open but the views of the Amalfi coastline are stunning.

We visited here last January and came back again to have a better appreciation of the gardens. Many points of interest. In particular the history of the music festivals over the years on a video loop in one of the many rooms and the glass...More
This is one on the most beautiful spot I've ever been the view of the Amalfi coast is breath taking. The Amalfi coast as a whole is one of my favourite places but Villa Rufolo is where I feel most at peace looking out over...More
Poorly laid out, unmanicured and, as somebody described early, quite chaotic. There are far more beautiful gardens to visit in the region - the greatest example being the Villa San Michele on the island of Capri.
We visited the villa at the end of the day, there was a concert in the evening meaning some part of the garden was set up for a concert. It is a nice stop with some beautiful viewpoints and a nice place to walk around.
A short walk from the coast, this villa is known for its open-air concerts. Wagner is alleged to have found the magical garden of Klingsor on its grounds. Despite a guide book, we found it impossible to follow directions as the layout seemed chaotic. So...More

Hi, there are a couple of possibilities. One is catch the Circumvesuviana train from Naples to Sorrento, then catch the Sita bus from Sorrento to Positano, then Amalfi. At Amalfi you can either take the Sita bus or the Hop on Hop off bus up to Ravello. The downside of the train is it a long journey on a train frequented by pickpockets. People we know who caught the Sita bus to Positano and Amalfi said that they had to stand the whole way and felt nauseous from the trip.
The other option is to catch the Ferry from Naples to Sorrento, then from Sorrento to Positano and Amalfi. Then get on the bus to Ravello. Ferry is a lot more pleasant of commuting albeit more expensive.
I think that in the summer there is a ferry from Naples, via Capri to Positano or Amalfi.
At the ferry ticket point in Sorrento, on the right hand side, there is a company called the Marina Club which stops at Positano for two hours before continuing onto Amalfi. I think you get another two hours of shore time to visit Amalfi.
On the Sorrento Tourism website there is a webpagepage called How To Get There which is very helpful and will direct you to timetables, etc.
Having stayed in the area in the past I would say that you do better to spend a few days visiting all three places. But if you only have one day to visit the sights a private car hire or tour bus may be a better and quicker option to get around.
Have a wonderful trip as they are all fabulous places.
