  • Every door you pass is a "wow" moment. Save time for visiting the building because it has so many details in architecture and paintings you could easily stay hours looking to them. There is a great organization of the tour pass, so you can have good information to visit each space. And don't miss the superior garden, it is also incredible and a great breathing zone specially in a hot summer day. Definitely it worth visiting.
  • Wonderful Villa! I was truly mesmerized by its beauty, from the architecture, to the paintings to the sculptures, it blew me away. It definitely deserves more than a €5 entry!
