Must see · Garden · Historic Site
One of the highlights of Villa Cimbrone Gardens is the Terrace of Infinity, a natural balcony with 18th-century marble busts and views of the sea, lemon groves, and mountains. As you walk through gardens of this historic villa, you'll wander past oak, alder, and chestnut trees. Make your way down to the natural cave that is home to a 19th-century marble statue of Eve. Walk up the stairway to the rose gardens to breathe in the scent of French and English roses. Look for the inscription quoting poet Omar Khayyám. Latch on to a guide at the entrance if you want to see all the sculptures and learn their stories.

  • Incredible and relaxing views. Definitely worth the €7 price of admission. About 5 min walk on steps from the city center
  • Great place to relax and walk around with your thoughts. Unbeatable views of Amalfi. Keep in mind that it does close every once and a while for the day and they tend not post it on their website. It happened to us when we were there but we didn't mind because we time to come back and Ravello was our favorite place on the coast.
  • The garden is beautiful and you cannot miss the Infinity Terrace. The view up there is stunning. We also dined at the restaurant of the hotel. It is a very upscale and posh restaurant, meaning the portions are really small and on the expensive side. The service was beautiful, however.
  • The most well spent 7 euros on the whole of the amalfi coast. Wonderful villa with such lovely gardens and the infinity terrace has one at a loss of words. Ravello is a great village too, so you can walk through it after your visit at the cimbrone villa.
  • Nice views but not worth 7 euro as you get the same views from other places. Have seen better gardens. Statues ok. Area overall is pretty small.
