  • I took a bus from a hotel near Republic Square once and went to Janikoro Hill first thing in the morning (arrived at 9 o'clock). The Villa Lante al Gianicolo is an east-edge cliffd building about 200 metres north of the square with the Giuseppe Garibaldi equestrian statue, which is thought to be the center of janicolo hills. An old plate with the opening at 9-12 o'clock was posted in front of the gate, but the gate remained closed because this day was Monday. In terms of the view, i was able to enjoy a good view from the vicinity of the Lante house even if I didn't enter the museum.

  • Villa Lanteen can be accessed on weekdays at 9-12 by calling the bell on the gate. Near Villa Lantea can be reached at least from Trastevere to beautiful 115, otherwise you will have to bust up the hillside. Open spaces for visitors include the lobby, Loggia (terrace), library and garden courtyard. Not any major attractions but the scenery as well as the villa and the nearby views from the terraces to the center of Rome are fine.

  • When you come to the monument of Anita Garibaldi on the Hill of Janeny Koro, the one in front of it is the Lante residence. The iron gate of the entrance was closed, but the building was seen well beyond the gate. The 16th century Renaissance Villa architecture is well preserved, and the owner seems to have changed many times, but now it seems to be owned by Finland Foundation. It seems to be possible to inspect it beforehand, but it was not possible to ask when it was closed though the way was not understood well and it gave it up.

  • Wonderful gardens with very few visitors. We were with an Italian friend who has heard there was a free tour, but there were no signs and the guy at the ticket office didn't say anything, so we asked and our names were put on the list (you'll need some Italian to do it). Apparently a different one of the various buildings is opened for the tour each week. We saw inside the limonaia with a very bored and fast-speaking guide who told us Margaret Thatcher had stayed there, though the picture she pointed to on the wall was of Princess Margaret!!! The gardens are a little run down, but definitely worth seeing.
  • Gorgeous garden from the 13th Century. Be sure to do a little reading up on the history of Villa Lante before going in— you’ll be sure to have an even deeper appreciation, and respect for the space.
  • An inferior and smaller version of Tivoli Gardens. Same general layout: a series of waterworks running down the slope of a hill. Lots of maintenance work going on. Lots of maintenance needed. Certainly nothing to go out of your way for. Spent 30 minutes. Admission is 5 Euros
  • Beautiful and unique "all'italiana" park and historical building. Nice and elaborated waterfalls. On some days guided tours of the interiors of the buildings are scheduled. Villa Lante is part of a enjoyable public park (free access)
  • 5€ for visiting a small ordinary garden is a bit too much... I didn't enter!
