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.

Villa Rufolo Reviews
Un placer recorrerlo, hermosos jardines con mejor vista...Hay que visitarlo sin excusas dedicandole un par de horas...!!! more »A pleasure to explore it, beautiful gardens with best view... You should visit it without excuses dedicandole a couple of hours...!
Dette sted bør man opleve, når der ikke er et mylder af turister, for freden, duftene og udsigterne er fantastiske, når man kan få dem lidt for sig selv! more »This place should you experience when there is not a throng of tourists, for peace, the scents and the prospects are great, when you can get them a little for himself!
Beautiful views. Interesting history. Worth the price of entry. Great place for panoramic pictures with you and your loved ones. Accessible tower with an even higher vantage point.
A beautiful place to visit, with a nice 360 degrees view of the area on top of the tower. The garden is nice to walk through or sitting relax on one of the wooden benches to enjoy the view. We had some seniors with us, which received some senior discount.
