Sun and nature, tradition and prestige, the Amalfi coast and Ravello, architectonic and artistic masterpieces that frame Villa Rufolo like a timeless treasure. A favourite haunt of musicians, artists and poets, eulogised in the poetry of Bocaccio and where Richard Wagner saw the living image of the garden of his imagination: a unique experience that takes you into a different world. The jewel in the crown of Ravello, the defiant stronghold of the once great Amalfi Maritime Republic, contains centuries of history, magnificent works of art, and legends. The Villa is unique in terms of its architecture and decoration, and has never failed to make travellers marvel - all those who have had reason to cross its threshold down the centuries. Its uniqueness reflects its location at the crossroads of intense commercial and cultural exchanges; indeed Gregorovius referred to it as “a miniature Alhambra”.

RECOVERY PROJECT OF THE MEDIEVAL TOWER AND THE AUDITORIUM OF VILLA RUFOLO
The property of the monumental complex of Villa Rufolo is shared by the EPT of Salerno and the Ministero per i Beni Culturali. Since April 2007 its management is entirely in the hands of Fondazione Ravello, which uses the Villa as the venue for the Ravello festival: seventy days of music, dance, cinema, exhibitions and cultural appointments ensuring festival goers an unforgettable stay, reaching its climax with the magical Dawn Concert. A breath-taking experience in which music and nature coalesce, achieving a sublime harmony of the senses.
We inform our kind guests that from 20th June until 5th September Villa Rufolo will host the events of the Ravello Festival 2015. Therefore the opening time of the Villa may change. The timetable will be updated day by day. For information please call: +39 089 857621
