Villa Ciambrone
Your long walk along the narrow paths of Ravello to reach the Villa Ciambrone will be well rewarded. The villa's fabled Terrace of Infinity lives up to any superlative you have read about it (American writer Gore Vidal called the sea view from the belvedere the most beautiful thing he had seen in all his travels). The villa is now a luxury hotel, but the gardens and terraces are open to visitors for a small entrance fee. Painstaking care has been taken to keep the garden as the villa's early 20th-century English owner, Lord Grimthorpe, intended.

To Infinity and Beyond at Villa Cimbrone
Ravello's stunning Villa Cimbrone dates back to at least the 11th century. Though most of the original structure has been renovated, and the villa now includes a hotel and restaurant, it is nonetheless one the must-see stops along the Amalfi Coast. The villa is known for its gardens and, especially, its Terrazzo dell'lnfinito, or "the Terrace of Infinity," which features incredible ocean views.
