“Gorgeous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Gardens and views (especially) are stunning however later in the summer the garden part is a little dried up due to lack of natural rain fall.

“A Must See!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Villa Cimbrone is a must see if you are anywhere near Ravello. It is stunning. We went in October--I couldn't imagine how beautiful it would be in the spring when the wisteria is in bloom. We stayed on the Amalfi Coast for five days, and this was by far our favorite excursion. The views are vertigo-inducingly spectacular, the gardens lovely and the villa impressive. A must see when in Ravello!

“Nice Garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Had a great day at Villa Cimbrone. First of all Ravello is great. Next is this big beautiful garden with great plants and flowers, beautiful statues and amazing views. It is definitely worth seeing. When you are done have a nice glass of wine and a snack in the Ravello square

“This is an amazing place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Follow the signs and enjoy all the sights this garden has to offer. It is worth taking some time to explore some of the paths off the main trail. Although there were quite a few people it didn't seem crowded. The views and history of the place were fantastic!

“Lovely gardens with breathtaking views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The gardens are a good walk uphill from the main square but definitely worth the effort!
While the gardens themselves are a little neglected it reminded me a bit of a secret garden and had alot of charm to it.
The view from the terrace is the reason to go here as it looks over the ocean and the towns below and absolutely breathtaking.
The tea rooms are also charming and had excellent service.
