Must see · Garden · Hidden Gem · Historic Site
A nice place for a walk or picnic, Villa Lante features huge fountains, grottos, and ancient statues surrounded by shaded walkways and geometric shrub gardens. Composed of two Mannerist-style buildings, the villa itself dates back to the 16th century. The ducal family lived here until it was severely damaged in World War II. Dr. Angelo Cantoni then acquired and restored it. The garden is part of the Grandi Giardini Italiani, a garden association that includes many of Italy's historic gardens.

  • Love beautiful gardens...? This is definitely worth a visit! Reminiscent of Versailles, the gardens were constructed to give guests consummate views from multiple levels. Great use of symmetry...  more »
  • Very pretty garden, similar to Versailles. This has been a great visit in winter, blue skies and few visitors. Love all these medieval towns! #alagreenviaggia
  • This is NOT an "ordinary garden" (as one comment here claims) but an important Mannerist Iralian Garden project with captivating spaces and fountains along with groomed garden spaces.
