Villa d'Este is all about the gardens and fountains...the villa itself is not much. Besides the beauty of the place, it reminds you of the wealth that existed and the creativity of the people who designed these places for the elite. This is a good...More

You actually approach the gardens from the 'wrong' end: the point was to enter at the bottom of the gardens and be confronted by the unbelievable display of fountains topped by the villa; a graphic display of wealth and power. The modern visitor starts at...More

What a spectacular place. Easy to understand why this is a UNESCO site. The villa itself is nice but the real attraction, for me, were the gardens and the awesome fountains. Best of all, it is only a short hop away from Rome. A great...More

What a disappointment. It started with the fact the Villa is hard to find. Coming from the centre, I walked into the scare and not found a single sign. It took me 3 turns around the squarr to find the villa. How hard is it...More

One of the best sites to see in the Rome area is actually outside the city in Tivoli. Villa D’Este is one of the most amazing estates you’ll ever see with beautiful architecture, striking art and hundreds of working fountains — a real Disneyland of...More

After touring the beautifully painted buildings, make sure you’ve got an hour or 3 to wander round the gardens. The fountains are beautiful. If you’re planning on proposing to someone, do it here! I’ve already told my partner than this is where I want him...More

Highly recommended if you want to get away from the city. Train to Tivoli is cheap and relaxing. Gardens and fountains create a cool environment. We loved it. (Beware, signs to the Villa are not easy to spot!)

This is a truly spectacular garden and an engineering marvel with all the fountains using gravity and there is not one pump. It's a must to visit.

I booked with a tour company from Rome. So I don’t know the cost of just one attraction. Sorry. My tour included Villa D’este and Villa Adriana. As well as my transportation to and from Rome’s city center.

There are multi level public parking garages within a couple of blocks of the entrance to Villa d'Este. Whether or not they're crowded and/or full will depend on what time of year you're planning to visit. We found locals... More
