  • We'd read a lot about this place, and seen lots of photos of the fountains flowing and the gardens tended. It was disappointing to find the lower sections of the garden neglected and all the water...

  • The villa and garden are beautiful, however, not as stunning as I had expected; the gardens are impressive size-wise, but quite monotonic and the lack of flowers make them far less impressive...

  • 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.
  • Villa has beautiful garden. Lot of fountains and various designs in fountains. I have never seen so many fountains at one place and in small area. Its perfect place away from Rome for spending wonderful day in gardens. You can buy tickets on the spot. There will be line but not much .. Waiting around 15-20 min.
