Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Salerno / Amalfi Coast / Ravello / Villa Rufolo
Renowned for its moonlight concerts, Villa Rufolo was built in the 13th century for a wealthy local family. The villa is famed for its cascading gardens, which were created in 1853 by Francis Neville Reid, a Scotsman who bought the property and not only took care of its restoration, but also designed the current layout. The gardens are known for their luxurious flower beds, which blossom in bursts of exotic colors throughout the year, as well as for offering panoramic views of the world-famous Amalfi Coast. German composer Richard Wagner visited the villa in 1880 and was so overcome by the attractiveness of the location that he later used it as a setting in of one of his operas. Check the official website for an accurate list of all upcoming concerts and other events at this site.

From Amalfi we took a bus up to RAVELLO, a lush and peaceful version of an Italian hill village. A traffic free village with spectacular views of the coast and terraced hillside supporting grapevines.... more

This was a great experience, and we had a great time. When you arrive here, it’s a little deceptive as it appears you’re paying €7 just to get into the tower. However, there are actually extensive and lovely gardens to visit too. We would definitely come back here, as the views are amazing!
Amazing villa with outstanding views overlooking the Amalfi coast. It has a very rich history and you will feel like you are transported back in time. The yard and the garden are well maintained and beautiful. Many spots for taking pictures for a lifetime of memories.
