There are just some places that I would never known about and there are simply beautiful and also known for a lot of people for a specific event that takes place there occasionally. It is the same with Villa Rufolo.
The German opera composer Richard Wagner visited the villa in 1880. He was so overcome by the beauty of the location that he imagined the setting as the garden of Klingsor in the second act of Parsifal. In commemoration, every year the lower garden of Villa Rufolo hosts a Wagnerian concert.
Tourists visit not just because of the artistic side of the place but also for the beautiful views that provides on the coast.
The fauna is also breathtaking. I would also recommend for unique wedding pictures this place. The colors are just perfect and gives the good light from each side.
