  • Very nice place to spend a day with your loved one! Not so crowded in the evening as well no lines. Great view and the water splashing in the background is relaxing.
  • Villa d'Este is a beautiful place to visit less than an hour East of Rome, in Tivoli. Almost every room of the three story mansion is covered in murals, sculptures, and history. Outside the home are multiple acres of gardens and fountains that are extremely impressive. It took us about two hours to tour the property and is highly recommended.
  • Nice B&B great location in Tivoli and super friendly hosts. Rooms are clean and comfortable, the bathroom was big and had a lovely shower. Fabio is a great host and really friendly and informative. If you are staying in Tivoli or surrounding area then put this on your list of places to stay.
  • Gorgeous. The photos do not do justice to this incredible garden of fountains. A true wonder.
  • nice place to visit. free entry on first Sunday of the month - overcrowded on these days
