  • A lovely villa with renaissance style garden and elaborate painted rooms & ceilings. The several 100 fountains makes for an interesting photo opportunity. It would be better if you avail of a guided tour to better understand. It was not crowded in July, there were temperature checks before you enter.
  • This villa,including the gardens that surround, is absolutely beautiful. It is very well maintained and the views from various points are spectacular. Very photogenic for people who love photography.
