This is an arty little town set above Amalfi with beautiful views down over the Amalfi coast, especially from these arty gardens. We were a little disappointed by Ravcello because it's all about extracting the very last dollar possible from the tourist. The ceramic "factories" have beautiful work, but the prices are outrageous and it's cheaper to buy it from... More

The gardens are lovely - lovely mediaeval buildings, pretty flowers, beautiful statues, and stunning views of the coast. They were very quiet when we were there - great for photos. We also had lunch in the hotel, on a balcony with the most stunning views of the mountains and along the coast - reasonably priced if you take into account... More

We spent a couple of hours wandering through Ravello up to Villa Cimbrone. The gardens are beautiful and the terrace of infinity has the most amazing views. You can have tea on a lawn overlooking the valley - white tablecloths, waiters, the lot - very civilized. If you only have a short time in Ravello then this is the thing... More

A highlight of Ravello for a long, casual relaxing walk. Probably the highlight of a short trip to the Amalfi Coast after a ferry ride.

Despite the lush landscape and perfectly manicured gardens of the hotel itself, the public gardens were dirty, unkempt, and disgraceful. You pay 7 Euros to enter but there is no sign that this is spent maintaining the gardens. Such a waste.

Roam around these gardens & let your imagination take you to another era. A delightful place. Allow a generous amount of time to experience all that there is to see. Have a coffee on the tiny terrace or in the garden of the cafe.
