This was one of my favorite spots during my trip to the Amalfi Coast. The location of the 13th century Villa overlooking the sea is spectacular. The gardens are breathtaking. Beautifully maintained. I could have spent the entire day here. A must see especially for the photographer enthusiast!

Villa Rufolo has wonderfully colourful and vibrant gardens and stunning architecture. The vista over the Mediterranean is quite inspiring. We spent about an hour at the Villa, which was enough time to take in the various buildings and wander around the gardens. Surprisingly there was a line for ticket purchase, but once inside people were well spread out.

Just beautiful. Only given 4 stars to differentiate from the other main villa in Ravello. Gardens are beautiful and colourful even out of season. Fantastic views from above and along the Amalfi coast . So glad we went

In the town centre, you see this Villa Rufolo gardens. Adult tickets are covered by Compania Arte card and for kids separate tickets need to be bought. Travelling in off-season, We felt the entire Villa as ours. Lot of variety and many viewpoints to look at. Lemon tree with lot of lemons is eye catching. I would definitely recommend this... More

Would have been nice in the summer but by October a lot of the flowers were gone and were being re-planted. Wouldn't go out of my way to see it but worth a look in you are in Ravello.

The Villa has had many renovations over the years but you can still see the different moments in the history as you walk around the buildings and gardens. Just think about how long ago the large picturesque pine trees were planted. The architecture of the buildings and the location of them speaks to the wealth and power that flowed through... More

Go on a beautiful day and wander the villa and grounds where they hold the Ravello Festival (get tickets for the July festival far in advance!). The architecture is interesting and the gardens are lovely.

This place was unbelievable. Amazing views that went on for miles. They were doing a wedding photo shoot while we were there. This could not have been a more perfect place for it. We were only here for a little bit as this was our first stop of our day going along the Amalfi Coast, but it was the perfect... More

Ravello in November a disappointment, but the gardens of the Villa Rufolo were interesting; less floral of course (everywhere) than in summer, but very Italian. Crumbling stone walls, also everywhere.

One of the most spectacular see view in my life! We stayed in Amalfi and i took half an hour by bus to get there. It was hard raining and we hesitated if it is worth to go. But it was above our expectations! Small garden full with flowers, fantastic colors of the see, picturesque landscape and a small villa-museum... More
