Garden Historic Site
A nice place for a walk or picnic, Villa Lante features huge fountains, grottos, and ancient statues surrounded by shaded walkways and geometric shrub gardens. Composed of two Mannerist-style buildings, the villa itself dates back to the 16th century. The ducal family lived here until it was severely damaged in World War II. Dr. Angelo Cantoni then acquired and restored it. The garden is part of the Grandi Giardini Italiani, a garden association that includes many of Italy's historic gardens.

  • Tuscia was a wonderful discovery. There is so much to see and do if you love nature and visit the medieval villages, the Mannerist Italian gardens, go to the Spa. Villa Lante was unknown to me until the day before yesterday ... It is a 16th-century garden with two frescoed rooms very nice and two buildings, one of which was once a Lemon Grove and has been taking place for Charles along with young architects in training ... The garden has three floors with fountains that symbolize the four elements earth, fire, air and water! 5 euros admission, I would say it is a must visit!

  • This is such a beautiful place, not touristic and a real gem! The palace has nice decorations, and the garden is amazing with the fountains. Take a lunch with you and enjoy the grounds!
  • Beautiful gardens. Not too big so the kids didn't get bored either. Wonderful landscape architecture and water features.

  • We stayed at this lovely place on the first Sunday of the month, being a State Museum was free. Is very nice indeed, extraordinary Italian gardens, fountains, lovely, what struck me most is that of the Giants (they would probably do with a bit more maintenance), inside there is also a beautiful park. Everything revolves around the theme of the sea. Just a pity that they are not open to the two structures that will form the backdrop.

  • One of the major Renaissance garden. Taking advantage of the terrain and water well. If you want to understand the developing school programs from the top down to the bottom of the garden-entrance to the access road and even public transportation is not possible; do not. Rome Flaminio Ferrovia Roma-Viterbo line ride at Bagnaia. During the summer, except for the dispatcher to check ahead of time because time is very mobile. awake and move the vehicle is recommended.
