Villa d'Este, {CATEGORY}

The Villa d'Este in Tivoli, with its palace and garden, is one of the most remarkable and comprehensive illustrations of Renaissance culture at its most refined. Its innovative design along with the architectural components in the garden (fountains, ornamental basins, etc.) make this a unique example of an Italian 16th-century garden. The Villa d'Este, one of the first giardini delle meraviglie, was an early model for the development of European gardens.

Villa d'Este, {CATEGORY}

Like Hadrian centuries before, Cardinal Ippolito d'Este of Ferrara believed in heaven on Earth, and in the mid-16th century he ordered this villa built on a hillside. The dank Renaissance structure is not that noteworthy, the big draw for visitors are the spectacular gardens below (designed by Pirro Ligorio). You descend the cypress-studded slope to the bottom and are rewarded with everything from lilies to gargoyles spouting water, torrential streams, and waterfalls. The loveliest fountain is the Ovato Fountain (Fontana dell Ovato). But nearby is the more spectacular achievement: the Fountain of the Hydraulic Organ (Fontana dell'Organo Idraulico), dazzling with its water jets in front of a baroque chapel, with four maidens who look tipsy. The moss-covered Fountain of the Dragons (Fontana dei Draghi), also by Ligorio, and the so-called Fountain of Glass (Fontana di Vetro), by Bernini, are the most intriguing. The best walk is along the promenade, with 100 spraying fountains. The garden provides hours of exploration, but it's a lot of walking, with some steep climbs.
