Villa d'Este in Tivoli

Built for the Cardinal Ippolito d’Este around 1555, these complex renaissance water gardens in Tivoli are among the most famous in the world.

Water from the nearby river Aniene is channelled under Tivoli to feed the gardens’ vast range of spectacular fountains, including the celebrated organ fountain.
