With its stunning panoramas and beautiful garden Villa Rufolo is one of the most iconic sights along the whole Amalfi Coast and is an obligatory stop for anyone visiting the village.
Villa Rufolo is home to one of the picture-postcard views of not only Ravello but of the Amalfi Coast itself (see our logo for example!).
The main attractions of the villa are its gardens and its amazing panoramas across the coastline to Maiori and Minori in the distance.
Walking through the gardens you'll be struck at the variety of colours and the meticulous order of the dramatic setting.
Among the places of interest within Villa Rufolo are the Tower Gateway, the Cloister, the Great Tower, the Well, the Friezes and Chapel which give just a hint of the complex's glorious past.
Built in the 13th century, it was once supposed that the complex boasted "more rooms than there are days of the year".
These days the villa complex is one of Ravello's principal visitor attractions and a must-see for any visit to the village.
It's located in the corner of Piazza Duomo and opens every day from 09:00 to 19:00 with last entry permitted at 18:30.
Tickets cost €7 for adults, €5 for children under 12 or adults over 65 while for groups of 15 or more there's a reduced rate of €6 each.
