Admire the statues, secret groves, marvel at more than 500 fountains, featuring impressive waterfalls, dazzling fountains, centenary trees and and you'll find that sense of timelessness so prevalent in Italy.

The villa's stunning elaborate gardens and numerous fountains were designed to extend the palace's interior into nature itself.
You'll hear about the strange history of the Villa and his owners.
Once a former convent, the villa was requisitioned by a Vatican Cardinal during the 1500s and revamped as his summer retreat, considered to be the most enchanting villas of the late Renaissance period.
