Basically as good as it gets. if you can afford it stay at the hotel, if not this is the highlight. the sights and sounds as you look over the sea and the various bays along the coast are an amazing combination of spectacular and serene.

Villa Cimbrone is a 10 minute walk from Ravello, it's a very interesting walk passing little shops , hotels , restaurants . All uphill so not the faint hearted.there is a charge to view the gardens, but well worth the 7 euros. You get a glimpse of the beautiful hotel where stars such as Greta Garbo stayed. The views are... More

The view from the "terrace of infinity" is worth the visit, but the more distant parts of the garden could be mantained better. The toilets were exceptionally dirty.

Vest views in the area from the infinity balcony. Absolutely stunning. Most of the plantings are not native to Italy so they are particularly interesting to see. Well maintained beautiful paths. Interesting history for the building (secret Hollywood trysts). Well worth a few hours visit.

Make the trek up to Ravello, took ferry from Amalfi and caught the public transit buses behind the statue, bought tickets from agency at the port. Be careful there are the open buses more expensive tour buses and the less expensive public buses. About a 20 minute walk from bus drop off. Well worth the trip. So beautiful and peaceful,... More

If you are in Amalfi do take a trip up to Revello. The bus journey is a bit hairy, but once you get to the gardens of Villa Cimbrone it's well worth it. They are fantastic.

Awesome views abound from the terrace, remember that camera. Take a seat and the time to soak them up, absolutely marvellous. Gardens are really smart, well stocked and kept. Fantastic place for a trip if you are in the area, combine it with Ravello and Rufolo and get the most from the parking charges (high). Better in the underground car... More
