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

If you are time limited, Villa Cimbrone Garden is nicer, though Villa Rufolo is nice too. It is smaller, and the flowers looked more artificially added. Maybe the impression was not perfect because they were removing the stage of the concerts that were held here - but the entrance price was the same. So do visit this garden, because it... More

We wanted to visit Villa Rufolo as had heard the views were the best in the Amalfi Coast and this sure did not disappoint. Unfortunately it was a cloudy/rainy day but even though this was the case it didn't dampen the view. Also it was really quiet so could wander around and take our time which was lovely. Defiantly recommend... More

The villa itself is quite nice, but it's the views from the gardens that we went for and they didn't disappoint. Not overly crowded either.
