We came here right after leaving Villa Rufolo, where we had just seen the Mayor of Ravello, the wife of the Russian Prime Minister, their entourage, the Italian military police and journalists in tow. Then the whole gang showed up at the Villa Cimbrone Gardens. So, our visits to these places were probably more eventful than most people experience. That... More

These gardens are so large you can easily spend an hour wandering around them. You get a little guide book when you enter, and feel very much at ease wandering around. We went in April which was probably a little early for most of the flowers, but still very enjoyable.

We visited the Villa in April and the garden was full of scents, colourful flowers. The view is one of the best in the Amalfi coast. It takes appr 15mins to walk to the Villa from the centre of Ravello. You have to take many steps but it is worth it. There are major walking routes highlighted on the Villa... More

Gorgeous views and tranquility. We were there in the off-season, but views were still wonderful. A climb to get there but worth it!

Returning from Ravello,we conclude with the second most obvious activity (the most is to sit on the terrace): There are, very little more delicacies on a summer's day, then a stroll in the cool and rustling garden of the Villa Cimbrone,a simple Renaissance -style villa with Moorish-infuenced cloistres from which the garden cascades Its a complicated park filled with flower...

Breathtaking views and easy wandering. Expensive to get in though for the size and out of season not much to see, should be cheaper in low season really.

After my husband and I spent many nights in Firenze and Rome we were looking for something a little more laid-back and less crowded in the month of March. We took a taxi ride up to the cute little village located in the mountains overlooking the ocean. This was by far the most breathtaking and beautiful rustic part of Italy... More

Gorgeous paradise! These gardens, terraces, buildings, sculptures...every nook and cranny you explore has a new treasure to discover. Wander at your leisure to explore truly a paradise on earth. On your way out heading back to town, be sure to stop by the monastery's shop, and the church mid-distance from the main square.
