All reviews amalfi coast ravello festival richard wagner music festival amazing views entrance fee worth a visit the main square gardens are beautiful full bloom overlooking the sea town square the cliff concert tower stage villa
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.
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.

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.
