The Villa was originally commissioned by Cardinal Ipplito d’Este as Tivoli was a popular summer residence for those wishing to escape the chaos of Rome since the Roman times.

The large multi level villa includes numerous magnificently painted rooms that you can enjoy during your visit. From walls to ceiling, each room is a masterpiece of artistic glories.

However, most of the visitors have something else in mind when they think of Villa d’Este: it’s magnificent Italian style gardens with hundreds of fountains, pools,  waterfalls, and water troughs with water supplied by the Aniene River.
