Ravello-Villa Cimbrone

Ravello is a spectacular, picturesque town in the hills just past the town of Amalfi. A must see in Ravello, offering the best views in all of the coast is Villa Cimbrone a historic building, dating back from at least the 11th century AD, although little of the original structure is now visible. The building was altered and extended, using a collection of salvaged architectural elements from other parts of Italy and elsewhere, by Ernest William Beckett (later Lord Grimthorpe), an English politician, in the early twentieth century.

The English inspired gardens in the villa are incredible and the views are so beautiful they seem unreal.
