More than 500 fountains in the 16th-century terraced gardens of the Villa d’Este: the frivolous opulence of the prelates of the Renaissance. Leafy, beautiful vistas, spouting fountains, with a new water surprise behind every wooded corner. And a water organ! The Villa itself displays the finest Renaissance frescoes. And there is a deep meaning beneath this beautiful spouting opulence.
World Heritage of UNESCO.
