We visited on a warm sunny day in April and it was very calming walking around the lovely gardens though they were not yet fully in bloom. It was very well kept and the views over the coastline were stunning. We enjoyed ice creams sitting in the shade enjoying the garden and the views. We had walked from Ravello town... More

We saw Villa Ruffle first and then Cimbrone, it is like night and day. Cimbrone is beautiful, well attended to and spacious. You can wander off in the gardens, sit in the sun to absorb the views... Take some time to enjoy the place.

We visited in April and flowers had not begun to bloom so the gardens were very average - the views were something else - absolutely spectacular. The walk to/from the villa from the town square is full of little areas to enjoy. Purchasing the multiple ticket from the Museum in the main square will cost you 12 Euro and get... More

Possibly the most beautiful and spectacular gardens in Europe? These gardens truly are sublime with wonderful drives and jaw-dropping vistas of the Amalfi coast. A wonderful mix of the formal and informal, English and Italian these are must see gardens. A gentle 10 minute walk from the centre of Ravello up winding passages this really is a place worth visiting.... More

This is a must see when in Ravello. Gardens and view to die for! Well worth the 7 Euro entry fee. Don't be put off by the 15-20 minute to walk there from the main square, it is worth it.

Out of all of the Amalfi coast town, Ravello is probably the ones you hear less of, thus creating a town not as touristy noisy as others ( less souvenir stores, less traffic, more real- interested crowd .. Etc..). I suggest if are already here then make the effort and take the ( long but great) walk to this villa.... More

This garden was full of amazing views, beautiful statues, and interesting structures. I felt like I could take a million pictures of all of the stunning views of mountains, clear blue water, and the perfectly placed statues yet still not capture its full beauty. There is also a little booklet you receive after paying the entrance fee that gives information... More

It is a more remote out of two Ravello's villas. Please make sure that you are fit and well equipped to walk up the hill. The price is 5EUR if you pay for all Ravello's attractions at once (the price to visit all four sites is 12EUR). The place is absolutely beautiful, tastefully done and well preserved. Following the itinerary... More

The garden itself is overrated and a little unkempt. It is still worth the long walk from Ravello township, predominantly for the clifftop terrace overlooking the Amalfi Coast. A great photo opportunity, however you may have to cope with large crowds of people all wanting the same thing. There is a price on entry to view.

We are staying in nearby Minori and headed up to Ravello for the evening, thinking after the drive up to Ravello there must be somewhere you can go to take in the vista we came across Villa Cimbrone. The entrance fee is €7.00 which even if you only head to the terrace is worth it, the views from the there... More
