We will see the Pecile, big Thermal Baths, the Small Thermal Baths and the Canopo.

Then we will continue to Villa D’Este. Its frescoes make it one of the most beautiful residences of the Renaissance, built by cardinal Ippolito D’Este.
The Villa’s countless fountains, set in the heart of magnificent Italian style gardens, create a delightfully graceful symphony of carved stone, shade, sunlight and water coming directly from the Aniene river.
We will see the Rometta Foutain, the Ovato Fountain, and the Dragon Fountain.
