Villa Rufolo Ravello  Italy
Villa Rufolo
You'll recognize this setting as one that appears in some of the most iconic Amalfi Coast photos. The villa's riotous beds of pansies and garden walls covered with vibrant bougainvillea are as jaw-dropping in real life as in photography. One section of the gardens dates back to the 13th century, but only traces of the medieval part remains—most of the space is dedicated to a Romantic-style garden that was designed by Francis Nevile Reid, a wealthy Scottish expat who owned and restored the villa in the late 19th century. In addition to touring the gardens, a small museum on the grounds, with a cloister and tower, is worth visiting. From June through September every year, the Ravello Festival is held here.
