“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

This was a long walk through town and was tough for my parents, so I was hoping it was worth the trouble. It was stunning--none of us was disappointed. Walking out to the Terrace of Infinity you walk past a dense group of umbrella pines with a gorgeous smell and grasshoppers buzzing in the summer heat. Then you come out onto the dizzying Terrace of Infinity--as they say, pictures don't do it justice.

“One place to go in Ravello is here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Great views and reasonably well kept gardens although not to the best UK standard. €7 entry fee person. The bar at the end has some great views and reasonably priced drinks. We had two beers for €7 sat in the shade under the trees and enjoyed! Well worth a visit and wander around. We tried to book a table in the hotel for dinner and they were fully booked for the next three nights, guess it must be good...pre book!

“run down, disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

10€ admission times the number of visitors should buy some serious gardening. Not. Fountains not running, few flowers, paths unswept, unraked. Map did not jive with the actual. Only one really good thing to see, namely the overlook terrace with dirty, broken statues. Major disappointment. Not worth it at all.

“Beautiful gardens with great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

These gardens are a good walk from the square but they are outstanding and must be visited if in Ravello. At the far end of the gardens is an outdoor bar and cafe nestled on a green lawn with linen table cloths.
