Villa Cimbrone Gardens, Ravello

4.6
#1 of 21 in Parks in Amalfi Coast
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.

    Amazing views of the Amalfi coast that you can enjoy from the main terrace of the Villa. Beautiful, a dive into the blue! Alone pays the ticket price of 7 euro ...

    In doing a day trip to Ravello we only went here because of a recommendation from our B&B owner, and it was the highlight of the day. While the gardens are lovely, the view cannot be beaten - don't mi...  more »

  • Very long and tiring walk to reach this Villa but well worth it! Gorgeous and breathtaking views and gardens. A lot of shade and breeze - great place to cool off and relax. Note that driving directions in google maps are inaccurate. You'd better off parking your car at the parking near Villa Rufolo and both villas are walking distance. Ceramic stores are more expensive here than in other towns on the coast.
  • Went to visit gardens. They were very nice gardens however main attraction was the views and vantage points. Price wasn't too expensive but definitely not cheap at €7 entry.
  • Amazing spot. Incredibly scenic views of the Amalfi Coast while also making you feel like you stepped into a different world walking around the Villa.
  • Nice villa, in the same style such as the other one in Ravello but slightly less upkept, and a little bit more expensive. The gardens don't have a lot of flowers, are dirty, and have a poor selection of things. The statues are a bit nicer and more creative. The views are almost the same. The sad thing about this villa is that there is no internal part to it. The restaurant in the hotel is a bit pricey but nice. If you have the time it's worth a visit, if not then dont bother.
  • Beautiful gardens, walked around, made a wish in the well and all round enjoyable experience.
