Lazio’s hidden gem?

Villa d’Este is a magnificent villa situated in Tivoli, an ancient Italian town in Lazio (less than an hour away from Rome). It was built in the 1500s and is absolutely breathtaking. During my visit to Tivoli, we stopped in to admire the magic and wonder of this enchanting place.

The luxurious gardens, fountains and statues, surrounding the villa will leave you speechless. Walking through the gardens, you feel as though you are in a dream with breath-taking images everywhere you look.

Inside, the villa is lavishly decorated with frescoes, proudly displaying the art of the Renaissance and transporting you back in time. To experience Villa d’Este is to take a walk in time. You can almost feel time stop while you spend hours walking the grounds, trying to take in every last detail. Words and pictures will never truly convey the sheer beauty of this place. It is a must-see for anyone planning a trip to Rome.

Has anyone else been to the Villa d’Este? What did you think of it?
