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.
We were told to visit this place by our tour guide and it was very interesting. Many beautiful gardens and views and building remains. I will add some photos to give you a better picture than words can do. It shows the history of the...More
This is a beautiful property. A13th century villa built by wealthy merchants sited overlooking the Amalfi coast and Mediterranean Sea. We took a wander (about 1 1/2 hours) through the buildings and gardens taking many photographs and admiring the architecture, plantings and stunning vistas.
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.
I was first here a number of years ago and was mesmerized by the beauty of the location and my return visit was no different. While the gardens change seasonally and October is a bit towards the end of the season, on a clear day,...More
Once you step into Ravello, it is a must-see place to visit. Villa Rufolo is small enought to walk and enjoy in 1-2 hours at the most. Rufolo bears the name of the family which created this beautiful architecture. You will see the great ocean...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.
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.

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.
