A bit of a walk from the center of Ravello but well worth it!

VIlla Cimbrone is by far the more impressive of the two major villas in Ravello, the other being Villa Rufalo. This one requires a little hike from the center of town but the... read more

VIlla Cimbrone is by far the more impressive of the two major villas in Ravello, the other being Villa Rufalo. This one requires a little hike from the center of town but the views are breathtaking along with lovely gardens and sculptures. If possible one should allow enough time to visit both Villas.

A relaxing stroll through beautiful gardens, informative guide books help explain the different parts. There are some stunning if a little scary views over the bay. We were there quite early in the season so it will probably be even better in summer with all the plants in bloom. You can get a ticket which covers all the gardens and... More

We visited Villa Cimbrone in this delightful village on the recommendation of friends. The gardens are well kept and peaceful but the outstanding attraction is the viewpoint from the edge of the mountain. Looking straight down you can see the windy, twisting roads, rows of lemon trees, houses balancing 'on the edge' and out to sea. Beware if you have... More

It was fine but that's about it. It costs €10 to get in and all that you can do is walk around the gardens......not the actual villa!!!!!

Main reason to go there is the view. The view is amazing. You have to pay 5-6 euro to enter but it's worth it.

We had tea 'Silver-Service' style on the patio over looking the gardens of Villa Cimbrone ...... a lovely experience, so peaceful, you can understand why people like Greta Garbo enjoyed her time there. The staff were very friendly and accomodating! Kim (NZ)

My husband and I visited Villa Cimbrone on our last day when we were in Ravello in April 2015. We were the first ones in, and all I can say was the experience was a fantastic one. The day was sunny and clear and you could see beyond the hills and the views were breath taking. To top it all... More

A beautiful garden on the edge of the Amalfi Coast. I have never seen wisteria hanging four to six feet long! Spectacular.

You could spend hours in the peaceful and utmost beautiful garden that is large enough to find something new every time. And Terrazzo d'ell Infinito just makes you speechless.
