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.

We took the bus to Scala, and then walked to Ravello. Passing through Ravello, we found ourselves in the Villa Cimbrone Gardens. The Villa grounds are quite extensive, and well worth the admission price. The cloister is beautiful. The Crypt, while it has lovely views, was piled high with chairs and tables stored there for banquets, which detracted a bit... More

My wife and I stayed in Ravello for a week in late September 2014 and had to visit these gardens twice as it was so beautiful. I think the best time to go must be in the morning just after they have opened and before the coach tours arrive, so that you can experience the stunning views from the Terrace... More

While in Ravello, Villa Cimbrone is a must. The gardens are well maintained and walking around turns into a magical experience, everywhere you turn there is a perfect scene to take a pic. On your way to the gardens you'll pass by the Santa Chiara Monastery where they sell the best Crema de Limone

I went to Villa Cimbrone after first visiting Villa Rufalo and Ravello's cathedral. The views and gardens in Villa Cimbrone were, by far, the best of Ravello. The fact that the villa is right on the edge of a plateau meant it felt more connected to the Amalfi coast, with the air, mountain and sea all coming together. The view... More

Fabulous gardens to visit. Slip back into time and imagine you are doing the Victorian Grand Tour of Italy. Not to be missed.

This was one of the highlights of our honeymoon - just strolling around the gardens and along the Belvedere of Infinity. It was all so, so beautiful. We stayed in Amalfi, in a delightful place, but next time we might stay in Ravello for easier access to the Villa Cimbrone.
