  • This was my favourite place I visited during my 10 day stay in Italy. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, it is honestly like something from a movie.

  • This is a must see if you visit Tivoli - you can spend at least 1/2 a day. We loved it and will certainly be back.

  • This place is gorgeous! The gardens were the most impressive thing. Rooms inside the villa were cool, but once you've seen one, you've seen them all. I guess it's lost on me since I'm not the most appreciative of art. The gardens, however, we're beautiful and relaxing. There's a zillion fountains and water features and the deck views are very nice. Worth coming to Tivoli for.
  • 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.
