Many people have come to marvel at the beauty and grandeur of this villa in Tivoli, Italy. The structure is designed with Renaissance architecture and is surrounded by Italian Renaissance gardens. It also houses the State Museum maintained by the Polo Museale del Lazio.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Villa d’Este was built in 1830 as a project commissioned Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este who was the Tivoli’s appointed governor at that time. Today, it welcomes thousands of tourists every year who come here to see the building’s architecture and the historic interiors along with the handpainted ceiling murals, ancient sculptures and grottos, and verdant gardens.
