Stunning! The views are amazing! The gardens are beautifully manicured and the sunset is only fantastic! Villa Rufolo was at one stage bought and owned by a Scottish man. He restored it to its palacial prowess that it deserves! Again steeped in history there is...More
This is a photographer's paradise. So grateful for the many hands that came together to make this place, restore it, and maintain it now! If I could only do one thing in the area, it would be this! Treat yourself to its gentle loveliness for...More
Over the past twenty years I've visited these world famous gardens four times, once in May, once in June and twice in early September. I'f I'd have written this review based solely on the visits in May and June I'd have given four stars, maybe...More
We visited these gardens and I was fully expecting to be underwhelmed having read reviews comparing it to Villa Cimbrone.
How wrong I was? The views from the house and the terrace were spectacular and fit for a King and Queen.
The gardens were pretty...More
Visited Sept 20th and loved it. Beautiful gardens, breathtaking views, great ancient villa and very inexpensive entry (7 euros).
My personal comment to those who say the gardens are poorly kept and dry, please keep in mind that there are seasons here....we are in September,...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.
