Villa Cimbrone

Villa Cimbrone

Map
26 Via Santa Chiara, Ravello, 84010, Italy

Built for the English lord Ernest William Beckett and riddled with pretty little cloisters and crypts, this 1904 villa isn’t nearly on par with the Rufolo. However, its surrounding gardens, while less elaborate than the Rufolo’s, have an arguably more magnificent setting, with nooks and crannies where you may feel like you have the whole villa—and the surrounding panorama of countryside—to yourself. Draped down the steep hillsides from the highest point in Ravello, these gardens are designed to drink in the views at every turn—most spectacularly from the bust-lined Infinity Terrace, with a postcard view up the coast, and from the Belvedere Cimbrone, at the very tip of a ridge, with a 360-degree panorama around the Gulf of Salerno and up the Amalfi Coast.
