The best way to visit this site is with a driver and a private vehicle which is why I created this tour

This tour begins with a visit to the majestic Renaissance residence of Cardinal Ippolito d'Este, grandson of the renowned Pope Rodrigo Borgia. The countless rooms in the Old Apartment and the Noble Apartment, offer a journey into the history of art. Frescoes, stucco, and stone decorations, designed to brighten the owner's life, now enthrall the visitor. A monumental staircase leads us into the 35, 000 square meter garden, where the ambitious Cardinal impressed his guests with a prodigy of the hydraulic technique, still unchanged today. Prepare to be wowed with fountains, nymphs, and jets. (*Note: there are a significant number of stairs as well as up and downhill walking involved on this tour. )

ITINERARY

I advise you to:
-Wear comfortable shoes, as there will be stairs to climb
-Bring both a hat and a bottle of water which are necessary during the Roman summer
