Private Tour of the Amalfi Coast from Sorrento
Reviewed September 18, 2013

My wife and I just took a chance on this place, wandering in off Ravello's main plaza after breakfast, and were pleasantly surprised. Everywhere we turned we found interesting points of view and fun juxtapositions of centuries-old buildings and modern sculptures. The colors of all the flowers on the grounds is gorgeous. We didn't see any of the summer concerts on that stage that juts out over the view 1500 feet down to the Mediterranean, but they must be something to behold. Our cameras were snapping the whole hour we were there. I don't quite understand the people who make their way all the way to Ravello and then say it's not worth 5 euros to go into this magical place.

We looked around the Rufolo one morning before lunch and it was very pretty and interesting and well worth the 5 Euros admission fee. I wish we could have seen a concert there- it is an amazing location.

€5 entry - no where near as nice as Cimbrone. A few tress has some attractive metal scaffolding around them, the concert stage was all made of scaffolding with warped laminate flooring on top, the seats all multi coloured. Don't they have planning laws in Italy? There are far better older buildings in the world that are carved from stone, not concrete and rubble!
For the money and if you have time then go in....I was very disappointed

I was skeptical after the severe disappointment of the Villa Cimbrone (gardens and hotel both), but Villa Rufolo delivers color, views, architecture and the delightful music stage. This is where you see the iconic view used on many Amalfi Coast brochures. It's for real and worth sitting in contemplation. Afternoon light best for a photo. 5€ or a nice senior discount at 3€ (most senior pricing in Italy is for EU residents only.) Rest rooms, good map; right off the square, left at the end of the walking underpass from the Sita bus stop or taxis.

exhibition about opera music, an open air concert area where you can enjoy opera or classical music performances during summer season against the breathtaking scenery of the Amalfi Coast.
