We probably weren’t here at the best time of year but it was still a very pleasant visit. As you enter the gardens there is a cloister and a ‘crypt’ on your left. Although you go downstairs to the crypt, which is modelled on part of Fountains Abbey, it has an open outlook. Like the gardens generally, it is utterly charming. You can spend hours exploring the gardens, finding statues tucked away in many locations, including a fabulous one of “Eve” in a grotto. Perhaps the most famous part of the gardens is the “Terrace of Infinity”, offering stunning views of the coast and a tummy churning drop as you look down. It is enhanced by a series of statues placed along the railings. There is plenty of space to spread out, so these gardens don’t feel crowded. Autumn is too late for the flowers, although the masses of cyclamens were very attractive. If you want to see flowers, late spring is probably best.

After lunch we walked up through the narrow streets to Villa Cimbrone. It was a majestical place with views on the top to die for. The well known row of statues fwith their backs to the sea. The history of the place is really interesting in how it redeveloped over the years. You can spend all day wandering around the gardens with various roman type statues and temples. On the day we visited there were preparations for a wedding. They were all american and in for a treat. The tables were laid out ready for the celebration meal after the ceremony. What a place for a wedding.

For this visit we parked at the parking below the main square of Ravello. We first visited Villa Rufolo that is right there. Then we headed to Villa Cimbrone. The walk is quite long and there are many stairs on the way so please make sure your shoe wear is comfortable. Villa’s gardens are huge and unfortunately we didn’t have time to see it all but the main site we came for was the belvedere - the view point to die for! It’s called Terrazza dell’Infinito (Terrace of Infinity). So stunning!!!! The marble busts and the blues of the sky and the sea just take your breath away! You can notice that before the sunset it’s the time when all the couples arrive (we were one of them). Incredibly romantic and no wonder so many artists came to stay at this villa and admire its beauty. Gore Vidal was the biggest fan. A place with a wow effect.

If you are in Ravello and want to take a walk to visit it is a nice plan. Not a mandatory stop to do thought. It is a fantastic place where you can see some nice gardens (noting spectacular), a balcony with a great view (all the views of the seaside in Ravello are great). Note that most people go there for the classical selfie with the statues.... apart from that.... not much content to be honest. The walk from Ravello there is the most interesting thing in my opinion … and if you walk there just continue walking down the path in direction to Amalfi city.

Check the photos here and you will get 80% of the idea.... apart from that nothing much more.

Just like the rest of Ravello, the gardens of villa Cimbrone are beautiful. Especially the balcony of infinity. During sunset it gets more busy. The terrace on the right of the balcony is expensive, but is a nice place to sit and relax and enjoy the view over the valley next to Ravello and the sea(see pictures).

We arrived a little late in the day and did not have the time we would have liked. Additionally there was a wedding being held and parts of the gardens were roped off. That said, it was still worth the effort to visit. Easily one of the most beautiful views I saw while in Amalfi. The garden is so pretty and I wish I could have been there longer as they have a restaurant but, it was not open when we arrived.

PLEASE READ: Gardens can only be accessed by foot from Ravello square (despite what google says) and its 10-20 mins one way depending on your speed with many steps up & down. I have shared some pictures of path/steps and there is shade and stopping points on the way....it's definitely worth the walk, and the best gardens we saw in our time in Amalfi coast but please be aware.
Having said that, OMG, what a view and formal gardens to match. Loved it !

A must see when in Ravello. We had been traveling that morning so it was perfect to walk around these grounds and take in the beauty they possess. Very romantic and so many things to see. Make time to spend some time here.

10th October 2019. Beautiful gardens, well worth a visit if in Ravello - even in October. Spectacular location with great views from the Terrace of Infinity to houses and road below and the sea beyond. The Avenue of Immensity - a wisteria covered tunnel was also delightful even though the wisteria was not in bloom at the time of course. Well worth a visit.

Simply the most elegant sophisticated hotel that I have ever stayed in. With very few guests, you feel as if it is your private Villa. Situated at the top of the hill it is a long walk but worth every step from Ravello. The staff, service and food are equally outstanding. Highly recommend
