Posted by Jo Linsdell  |  No comments


Villa d'Este has been on the list of World Heritage Sites since 2001. Famous for it's beautiful gardens full of majestic fountains and grottoes, Villa d'Este was created by Pirro Ligorio for Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este and represented something absolutely new in the panorama of the 16th Century Villas.

Uberto Foglietta wrote in 1569 "no matter which direction one set's one's gaze, there are spouts of varied styles and of such splendor of design thatone must conclude that in all the world there could be no such place which is not greatly inferior".

Even today at 500 years of age, Villa d'Este continues to amaze and draw in thousands of visitors every year.
