  • Visit when it is sunny. An amazing array of fountains. Modern art inside creepy- give it a miss if not your thing. Take time to sit and listen to the water running and the birds chirping.

  • 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.
  • Visiting in October 2021, mid-week, mid-morning - we enjoyed the views mostly unobstructed by other guests. These aging fountains are well maintained and largely functional. The extent of the grounds are manageable for walking and breathtaking moments are many.
