  • The fountains were amazing! The pictures don’t do it justice! We loved the 100 fountains & all of the different faces.

  • 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.
  • Villa has beautiful garden. Lot of fountains and various designs in fountains. I have never seen so many fountains at one place and in small area. Its perfect place away from Rome for spending wonderful day in gardens. You can buy tickets on the spot. There will be line but not much .. Waiting around 15-20 min.
