Villa Rufolo

Villa Rufolo is one of the finest private villas found in Ravello, renowned for its spectacular gardens and breathtaking cliff top setting. Dating from the 13th century but enlarged in the 19th century, Villa Rufolo is a remarkable collection of pretty peach-coloured buildings once said to possess more rooms than days of the year.

The entire complex of spectacular gardens and beautiful buildings is crowned by the lofty Grand Tower – an impressive 30-metre high turret that reflects the status the Rufolo family once possessed within the town. Today, the villa boasts numerous features for the public to enjoy, including a tranquil central cloister and a manicured terrace garden offering spectacular views over the sea.

In recent times, Villa Rufolo has played host to the Wagner Festival – a classical music extravaganza in tribute of the late composer’s visit to this unforgettable residence.
