I could sit here forever.

Having great food and wine in one of the piazza cafes is such a fantastic experience. The place is magical!

This villa is a must visit in any trip to the Amalfian coast. It has not only incredible views but, most important, an extraordinary mix of gardening and architecture. It really feels as a spiritual, special place. Be aware than in summer it is used as a major concert venue. As such, you will find more cables and stages that... More

We spent time here on a trip to Amalfi and Ravello from Sorrento. The gardens are stunning, set on the top of a hillside with amazing views over the Amalfi coast, including THAT view you see in adverts and travel guides for the Amalfi coast! It does not disappoint. The gardens are simply beautiful and there are lots of little... More

We visited the gardens during the Ravello festival, and were able to wander onto the stage, which seems to be suspended in space over the edge of the cliff. The ruins of the original villa were lovely to explore, and there were oleanders and bougainvillea everywhere. A very interesting and atmospheric film was showing in a small, cool room, featuring...

Interesting villa and gardens with fantastic views. The small guide book together with the well put together video (in a darkened room -a nice break from the heat of the day) do a good job of explaining the history without going overboard. The villa is an interesting 'pile' and the gardens are nice. Put together with the fantastic views this... More

Being Mid August for our visit it was incredibly hot and the town of Amalfi below was heaving. It was a delight to come up to Ravello, but more so to pay the €16 for a family of 4 to come into this beautiful garden. Peaceful and the most spectacular views down towards Maiori where we were staying. Pictures will... More

The place is a must visit in Ravello for a self tour to this historic building. Mostly worth for the gardens and the view of the bay. The experience could be improved with some more creative ways of describing the villa to visitors.

This place has a beautiful villa, stunning views, and lovely gardens. Surprisingly not crowded and probably better to see in the morning. Please take your time to wander around and at 5 euro entry is a bargain.

After escaping the hustle and bustle of Amalfi down the hill, it was amazing to find somewhere so serene with breathtaking views. The garden was in full bloom so absolutely beautiful to wander around. The stage was set up for the Ravello music festival which sticks over the edge of the hill. It is open to walk on which is...

Great for photos, the views are amazing. 5 euro to get in seemed a bit steep but they do have clean washrooms at least.
