All reviews amalfi coast ravello festival classical music richard wagner amazing views entrance fee the main square gardens are beautiful full bloom overlooking the sea town square the cliff concert tower stage villa flowers
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
This tranquil haven perched on the hill of Ravello is beautiful. The tower has been turned into a modern and interesting museum with a viewing platform at the top. The gardens have incredible views down the coast allowing some breathtaking photos for your Instagram! Entry...More
Loved walking throm the villa and seeing how the Villa had some oraginal flooring and the fantastic lighting. The gardens are beautiful and it would be a dream to see the concerts ;that happened end of September .
The gardens and villa are one of the most amazing attractions of the Amalfi coast.Surprising to find that the gardens were created by a Scotsman! They are truly magnificentwith commanding views over the azure blue sea and sky.A photographers dream! Lovely to wander around with...More
Villa Rufolo is found after a long uphill walk from the main square in Ravello. The villa has many statutes and a wonderful view of the water. Unlike another Ravello site, Villa Cimbrone, Villa Rufolo does not have great floral displays. Like much of the...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.
