Not to be missed if you are on the Amalfi Coast. Sprawling villa dating back to the 13th century, with additions and renovations over the centuries made by a series of owners, with the result that it incorporates several architectural styles. Extensive, beautiful, gardens. Interesting...More

Visited this lovely place last week. Almost totally wheelchair accessible and free for both myself and my husband. The beautifully manicured gardens are only surpassed by the astonishing views. A lovely touch to hear Wagner playing gently in the background. Magical.

This villa and its surrounding gardens are lovely. We were treated to a 6pm tour of the tower which has just been reopened for tours in the last year.

Our group was brought to the Villa Rufolo, the venue for many important musical events, by our guide on a wonderful, sunny afternoon. After a brief introduction, we were left to explore the gardens and buildings, which look out over stunning views of the mountains...More

The villa was built in the 13th century of Moorish architecture. In 1880, Richard Wagner visited the villa and was inspired to finish his opera "Parsifal" here. Entrance fee was 7 euros. The main feature was the garden with views overlooking the coastline.

Grounds are in excellent condition and view is quite striking, but some parts of the buildings could use some repair. Still, worth the time and entrance fee.
