Stopped in Ravello during our 8 hour private drive of the Amalfi Coast. Villa Rufolo was one of two splendid gardens we visited. Enjoyed the grounds and buildings and loved the view ! Worthwhile visit for all to the Coast.

This exquisite villa is right in the center of town and should not be missed. My husband & I paid the small fee and with the map roamed the home & grounds by ourselves. The entire villa is so beautifully maintained to perfection. The gardens...More

If you go to the Amalfi Coast - you have to go to Ravello to Villa Rufolo - cafes, some of the most fantastic views you will ever experience. Inexpensive to wander about the grounds, great historical information that pertains to the region.

Only had coffee & cake, but were made to feel very welcome as we dodged a thunderstorm and stumbled upon the hotel by chance. Excellent quality at a reasonable price

Amalfi and area on February (1 Replies)
Hi all, my family and I are coming to Amalfi for a long weekend (Wednesday till Saturday) on February. I read in several posts and blogs that it's not really recommended to go to Capri since a lot of attractions are closed and it's not sure if the blue cave will be available to reach to. I would love to get good ideas for trips in the area, at the moment I found Reggia di Caserta, Villa Rufolo and Grotta Dello Smeraldo. Pompei is not relevant since we were already there. Are there...More

Getting on and off the Amalfi coast is not an easy task, particularly in the winter when there is no ferry service. How are you planning to get around?

Passing through Ravello with car from the south (5 Replies)
Is visiting Ravello need a tour or planning? We will be passing through coming up the coast and would like to see Villa Rufolo or Villa Cimbrone Gardens. Can we just park the car and walk around? Is there a fee? or is is public gardens? Thanks.

Yes there is a public car park in Ravello - or just outside. The town itself is all pedestrian streets. The villas both have entrance fees.

Buses to Ravello (2 Replies)
We're thinking of taking the Coast to Coast bus from Sorrento to Amalfi and then on to Ravello. They list 2 stops in Ravello, Galleria Nuova and Galleria Vecchia but can't find these places on google maps. Any idea where they're located? We'd like to visit Villa Rufolo and need to know if either of the stops are close as can't walk long distances. May also look at taking the SITA bus if more convenient stops. Any info greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Response fromMomCat1992|
I don't know where those stops are located but the entire village of Ravello is pedestrian only - 100% - so, whichever bus you take (Coast to Coast or SITA), you will be dropped outside of the village and have to walk into the village - and, around it. Good news is that it is not very big - but, no vehicles are allowed.
