As a fan of Gore Vital, I had heard about Villa Camborne and the Terrace of Infinity. So, I naturally wanted to see for myself. While the extent of our trip meant we had to be in Amalfi well before the best of its weather and beauty, the joy in venturing around the gardens was nothing short of overwhelming. I... More

The coldest March ever on the Amalfi Coast did not budge the beauty of Villa Cimbrone. Although most of the greenery was still hybernating, the Roman ambience is evident and its uniqueness is undeniable. An absolute must for any visitor to Ravello.

This is a beautiful villa with surrounding gardens obviously done by a very passionate man. There are many steps to navigate, but they are easy steps, not steep. It takes about 20 minutes from Ravello, but well worth the hike. Magnificent views from the terraces, my favourite is the "Infinity Terrace" with marble busts on plinths overlooking the sea. This...

Amazing views from the terrace garden, with a lot of sculpture, some of it very good. ( a bronze of Donatella's David, and various copies of pieces from Pompeii )

We spent a little over an hour at the gardens. It is quite large and we enjoyed following the map provided looking at the various sites, views, gardens and statues. In February, we only saw two other people there - so it was nice to have the place pretty much to ourselves. Fun place for photographers. Don't miss the crypt... More

I don't know how I missed reviewing this on trip advisor.... but you must visit! This place is very special because my husband had proposed to me at the 'Terrace of Infinity'. Typically its a bit more crowded with visitors but he caught it on a quiet moment right after it rained. It was magnificent. But aside from that special... More

The Villa Cimbrone gardens are delightful. You must wander out past the villa through the gardens taking in the beauty until you reach the terrace and the magnificent views of the Amalfi coastline will blow you away. The photo opportunities are endless. A must do when staying on the Amalfi coast and when in the beautiful Ravello.
