  • A lovely villa with renaissance style garden and elaborate painted rooms & ceilings. The several 100 fountains makes for an interesting photo opportunity. It would be better if you avail of a guided tour to better understand. It was not crowded in July, there were temperature checks before you enter.
  • This villa,including the gardens that surround, is absolutely beautiful. It is very well maintained and the views from various points are spectacular. Very photogenic for people who love photography.
  • These gardens and fountains are stunning! The villa itself had beautiful frescos in every room. I was in aw. 12€ for adults, children free, EU citizens get a discount. Mask is required for entry, but once in the gardens it’s not enforced. Your temperature is also taken at entry.
  • The gorgeous garden with its monumental waterfalls bring beauty to life through their water play. The Villa is spectacular, too, but the gardens really spoke to me. Recommended!
  • Not so far from Rome. A place where you can enjoy with your loved one.
