UNESCO world heritage - Villa d’Este in Tivoli (small town) is about 30km from central Rome.It’s one of the finest Renaissance villas and gardens in Italy and a great day trip from Rome.Built by the grandson of Pope Alexander VI in the 16th century, it’s filled with formal gardens, frescoed rooms, and gorgeous fountains. This was the home of Ippolito de ‘Este, a cardinal who failed trying to become pope. I was really stunned by how grand and magnificent the gardens were. They were so beautiful, with breathtaking views of the mountainside. A great view of the towns surrounding the mountain could be seen from the garden, and Rome is also visible. On a clear day, you can even see the ocean off in the distance. There were enormous, intricately beautiful fountains and buildings, and everything was picturesque. Alley of fountains These beautiful flowers were everywhere What a tree! I’m glad I escaped alive XD
