Other reviews prompted me to inquire about the Villa Cimbrone's accommodation and restaurant. The reception girl was haughty and didn't seem to have information on site. She would not permit me to see the restaurant or find out about reservations. So I visited the gardens and found them run down and uncared for. No fountains splashing, parterres unmanicured, statues broken and dirty. Nothing in comparison to the Villa Rufolo gardens at 1/2 the entrance fee.
