  • Short day trip from Rome. Totally mesmerising. Don't need to have any specific interest in Italian history to appreciate the astonishing beauty of the gardens, their numerous Renaissance fountains or the stunning interiors of the house. An inspiring and romantic few hours can easily be lost within the magical estate. Absolutely recommend for all ages and seasons although people with mobility issues may struggle to take in the sprawling gardens over its many levels.
  • A must-see UNESCO heritage site. It is highly recommended to spend at least 3 hours visiting the villa and gardens. The gardens are abundant with water, fountains, statues, ponds, flowers and lovely seating areas. The villa and gardens are spectacular and visiting them is a sheer pleasure. The level of preservation done at the place is exceptional. It can be reached in a 40-minute train ride from Trimini.
