"Villa d'Este: the building." Tivoli Travelogue by leics

Tivoli Travel Guide: 140 reviews and 506 photos

Although it began life as a convent, there is absolutely nothing about the villa which indicates self-denial. Its rooms are richly decorated with frescoes, its floors beautiful: one can easily imagine how comfortable it was when furnished.

It really is worth taking your time to explore the building, although the gardens are a constant draw. The frescoes repay careful scrutiny (some illustrate the history of the d'Este family), with some really rather surprising elements.........
