Beautiful gardens and architecture. Wish it didn't charge an entrance fee....A long walk from the center of the town piazza.

The location is very good for views but the gardens were pretty dissappointing and not very well maintained.

Our plans for our recent visit to Ravello included a much-anticipated visit to the Villa Cimbrone gardens. We purchased a ticket from the tourist information booth adjacent to the Duomo which allowed a discounted entry to five sights. We used our ticket for entry to the Duomo, Villa Rufulo, and Villa Cimbrone. Villa Cimbrone was a disappointment. Though ideally located... More

Wandering these gardens, which are extensive, can make you feel like royalty (even though this was never a royal garden). Some of the statuary is an imitation of statues from Herculaneum. When you reach the far end of the garden, you have an almost 360º view (with a sheer drop). Very beautiful and relaxing.

Some of the statuary has seen better days, and the planting needs attention. However the venue itself is stunning with great architecture and views.

A stroll around the Villa (fee charged for entrance) is restorative, relaxing, lovely. The views are ever-changing, from The Avenue of Immensity to The Terrace of Infinity. We especially enjoyed the many small gardens, the landscaping and tucked-away statues, on various levels. (While lunch at the Villa was recommended to us, the restaurant was closed for a private party while... More

We visited the garden in october during morning. We were almost alone in this beautiful place. We enjoyed the place but mostly the amazing view you have at the end of it. We took many pictures of this wonderful site. Only that was well worth the bus ride from Amalfi to Ravello!!

A must in Ravello (in my opinion) to see this once private villa and grounds with some of the best vistas in the area. The Terrace of Infinity is the money shot.

Some of the best views in Ravello! We visited in late September so we did not get to see the gardens in full bloom but that is to be expected that time of year. Still very nice for the views, and looking at the grounds and statuary.
