If you're looking to take in spectacular views without breaking too much of a sweat, head to Villa Cimbrone. Situated in the mountaintop town of Ravello, Villa Cimbrone is a luxury hotel lauded by both experts and recent visitors for its gorgeous on-site gardens. The property's gardens are considered one of the most important examples of English landscape and botany culture in the south of Europe, housing a handful of rare botanic species. And with the exception of a few trees, all of the plants that live within the garden's grounds are estimated to be about 100 years old. 
As such, you can expect vegetation of all kinds along your walk, including roses, hydrangeas and chestnut trees, to name a few. Along with beautiful botany, travelers are also greeted with equally stunning architecture. Though, the star attraction within the gardens has to be the Terrace of Infinity. This terrace, lined with busts, features unobstructed panoramas of the ocean, along with picture-perfect views of Amalfi's cascading cliffs from both directions. 
Recent visitors found the views from the Villa Cimbrone's gardens to be simply jaw-dropping, calling it the attraction's best asset. Others were also keen to praise the garden's landscape, however, those who visited the garden outside of peak blooming season (spring), naturally expressed disappointment at the lack of flourishing flowers. The best way to reach Villa Cimbrone, which can be found off of Amalfi's main highway, is by car. The gardens are open every day from 9 a.m. to sunset. Admission costs 7 euros (about $7.85). For more information, visit Villa Cimbrone's website.

Of all the Amalfi towns, Positano caters most to tourists, having the most hotels of any in the region and acting as a central departure point for boat tours. And with its pastel-colored architecture, popular beaches and chic shopping, it's as quintessentially Amalfi as you can get.  Eugeny / Getty Images

The Amalfi Coast is brimming with amazing trails and pathways just itching to be traversed. A traveler favorite is Path of the Gods, which takes hikers right along the edges of the famous coastal cliffs.  Jürgen Mangelsdorf / Flickr

The Amalfi Coast is home to 100 beaches, but don't expect your typical shorelines. Due to the geography of the coast, beaches are small and composed of pebbles, so bring comfy footwear.  Pola Damonte via Getty Images / Getty Images

The Villa Cimbrone Gardens are the most important example of English landscape and botany culture in the South of Europe, housing both rare species and centuries-old plants. A word of warning though: Some visitors found the gardens to be a bit lackluster outside of peak season blooming (spring).  Kevin & Debbie Rudd / Getty Images

The picture-perfect Furore Fiordo garners praise from travelers for its beauty. If you're visiting in the summer months, you may want to pick this stretch of sand to beat the heat. Due to its location, the sun only ever hits the beach in the morning, creating a cool hideaway in the afternoon.    robangel69 / Getty Images
