Villa Lante, Bagnaia

4.1
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.

  • I visited Villa Lante in a period of restoration of some sectors. So, unfortunately, I couldn't see all indoor; However I have seen enough to say that it is beautiful, even for her garden, is worth a visit, preferably with a beautiful sunny day. Management could be more efficient.

  • Not as much as I expected. Entrance fee €3 Some great fountains
  • Beautiful landscaped garden with fountains, worth the 5€ entrance, some ongoing repairs during our visit in Sep 2017. You can visit the park for free.
  • One of the great gardens of Italy. The house(s) are a little bit of a disappointment, nice but mostly closed to the public.
  • Amazing Renaissance garden. A must for every garden lover.
  • 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!
