So you are thinking of going into the hills to Ravello, well you have 3 transport options; the Hop-on Hop-off bus for €5 one way, the local Sita bus for €1.30 (purchase your ticket from the Tabac shop opposite the bus station) or an expensive...More
Villa Rufolo is the second place to visit in Ravello. Beautiful gardens to be looked at from above. The perfect combined colours .
Quite a few areas were closed to the public , I guess the prepare it for the coming season.
First—> To get to Ravello, there are 3 options:
1. By car: I don’t recommend anyone to drive the Amalfi coast in general. Small streets, lots of cars and buses, too curvy and no space for parking.
2. Hiking: There is no need to walk...More
We drove over 2 hours to get to the villa.
We spent one hour trying to park.
We spent 30 minutes inside the house and grounds.
We had a couple of nice views to look at including the many strategically placed vending machines.
We visited on a sunny day and the garden was an enchanting mix of vegetation and ruins. An excellent little guide, free with the ticket, leads you through the site.
The flower beds were very colourful, the trees and ruins gave architectural shape and the...More
A historical villa with a very interesting history, worth while to study in detail. A great garden with fantastic views belongs to the villa, and that's also the place where you can listen to concerts at one of the many music festivals in Ravello. The...More
This was originally the villa estate of one of the wealthy citizens of Ravello, which had fallen into disrepair and was partially restored The main experience is visiting and climbing the tower (which requires some stamina) and enjoying the views from the top, and also...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.
