Some information about Villa d'Este

Villa d’Este was commissioned by Ippolito D’este 1509-1572), Cardinal of Ferrara and son of the famous Lucrezia Borgia and Alfonso d’Este. At the Conclave of Julius III (1549-1550) d’Este was elected Governor of Tivoli. He decided to build a new villa. Ippolito d’Este commissioned a great architect, Pirro Ligorio, and numerous artists.

The original entrance to the Villa d’Este was on the old Via Tiburtina, at the foot of the hill upon which the Villa is built. The current entrance is on the side of the main building, an ex-Benedectine monastery which was first converted in 1256 into a Franciscan convent, and then into the Palace of the Governor of Tivoli.

The most famous part of the Villa is still the garden , with its perfect harmony with the Villa and surroundings. Nature bursts in a grandiose revelation of green tints and trees, and human will guides its exuberant forces. For centuries these veils of water, spurting and iridescently splashing, placid fountains and opaline ponds have charmed visitors.

Details of this guided excursion to Villa d'Este

During this visit - 4 hours including transfers or 6 hours including transfer and lunch disposal - you will admire: the courtyard of Villa d’Este, the upper or old apartment, the lower or noble apartment, the gardes and the famous fountains of the villa.

A fountain that you can’t absolutely miss is the Fountain of the Organ, so named because it was once connected to a water-driven mechanism that imitated the sounds of an organ. The fountain consists of a large structure designed by Pirro Ligorio along baroque lines.
