This is a must see. A short bus trip but ensure you see it in the afternoon so you can hear the organ play at 6:00. The gardens.....wonderful....the water...great and the actual villa on the same trip...outstanding.

This ancient "villa" is the size of the Vatican City! The things that the Romans could build in 100 AD are amazing. Bathhouses, heated pools and floors, temples, public spaces, wow..how did they do this with no machines and tools?

We went here as part of a tour to Villa d'Este. If you're attracted to various Greek and Egyptian architecture then this is for you. But I would save my photo ops for Villa d'Este instead.

We agree with all the other reviews. This is a wonderful place to visit. Make sure you wander around and explore the whole place. We found the audio tour useful, there is also excellent signage in Italian, English, French and German.
