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.
