Villa Rufolo has a lot going for it - its festivals, its location right in the center of Ravello, its views of the sea and its pretty gardens. However, except for the lower price, Villa Cimbrone is better in almost everything - statues, gardens, views....More

I found the actual Villa interesting, but lacking a little in substance. The gardens themselves were nice, but not as nice as Villa Cimbrone. Apart from the picturesque towers and most photographed tree in Italy, the art was also interesting.

A stunning and picturesque place. A must see on any trip along the Almafi coast. The views are to die for. Pretty gardens and well worth a visit.

The views are stunning, the entrance fee is minimal and you could spend as long as you like here. Pic nics not allowed, which is a shame but perhaps a good thing as people can be very inconsiderate at some of the prime spots. The...More

The gardens are lovely, as are the views and we were fortunate to be visiting during the concert period. If you want the iconic Ravello photo of the tree, twin church towers and water, you must come here!

In my opinion, the gardens here are less impressive than at Cimbroni. Younger visitors might be attracted by the bell tower that provides views over the villa and gardens, but you don't really see any more from up there than you do generally in Ravello....More

Beautiful park with many nice places where one can see flowers and plants. And a great view of parts of the Amalfi Coast. Here it is very good with a couple of hours of relaxation.

A must see if you are in Ravello. Great for photography and different to Villa Cimbone but nun the less just as good and slightly easier for getting to if disabled.

There is much made about how this villa has been restored but it doesn't look like they have done much, most of it is ruins, and much closed to the public. The tower has an awful glass stairwell that couldn't be less sympathetic to the...More
