  • The Palace is bad condition of preservation, stands out the abandonment, in addition to not have any furniture in the open area of the Palace. Directions and information are very precarious. The garden on the other hand, is a major attraction in all of Italy. The sources are unique in Renaissance gardens, you won't find anything like it. The visit is mandatory for anyone who is in Tivoli or in the region, which is very close to Rome. Admission is 10 euros, the view of the sunset is a spectacle. Recommend.

  • It was amazing. We travelled to Tivoli by train from Rome for just 2.50 € WOW. It was a short pleasant walk from the train station to the villa d'Este.The villa it's quite bare with lots of empty rooms but the beauty it's in the magnificent garden. In every corner there was a fountain each one different from the other.I enjoyed my visit a lot it was worth it .
  • It's one of the best place to visit for nature and history lovers. A beautiful and mesmerizing view from the villa, the fountains are super beautiful. My no 1 place to visit in Italy, highly recommend it. The almond trees were adding to the beauty of Tivoli and Villa d'Este. I am in love with Tivoli and its attractions.
