A wonderful respite from the heat and crowds of the Amalfi. The drive up is an experience but worth it. The music festival stage with the Amalfi backdrop would be spectacular during one of the regular concerts

Well worth the entrance fee. Nice entrance to the town and great views. The villa offers some nice architecture and gardens

This group of ruins has a great setting but the plantings are unremarkable. If you are a plant enthusiast you will be disappointed; lots of impatiens...

Worth a visit! Nice garden full of flowers and an interesting back-ground. The views over the seaside are breath-taking.

If you visit Rufolo after Cimbrone it seems a bit lackluster. Not a bad activity but kind of mundane

The gardens of the villa are beautiful beyond imagination, superior in design and choice of plants and decor. The view from the various terraces stunning as well. The concert platform does scar the image a bit. Just besides the villa you can find Hotel Rufolo with a good restaurant where you can refresh enjoying a view similar to the villa's.

One of the 3 stunning villas in the village. Fantastic views. Practically it's Villa Eva, Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone that you should never miss when in Ravello.

Enjoyed this just as much as villa Cimbrone , and its much easier to get to from town centre being just next to the 'tunnel'. A large stage obscured part of the gardens as the festival was on during our visi. There is a great video display in the gardens showing the past 90 years or so history of the... More

This is where all the Ravello tourist promotion photos are taken. The gardens in any event are a must see - absolutely beautiful! Even when quite busy there is still plentry of room for everyone as the gardens cover such a large area, although getting your photo taken by the famous tree can require a bit of patience! The fee...
