The Villa d’Este, more often call the Tivoli Gardens, is an easy visit from Rome. It’s no surprise that it’s on the UNESCO world heritage list. It has the most impressive number of fountains, nymphs and grottoes you could possibly imagine. It really is sheer magic. I nearly didn’t put the last photo in, because I think it’s actually rather grotesque, but it’s so well known that I thought I couldn’t leave it out!
