Villa d'Este is the perfect place to spend an afternoon in Tivoli. Every view is breathtaking and every turn leads to another waterfall. Such a relaxing break during our Rome vacation. A must see.

€10pp to get in but the gardens were worth that to walk around in. The water features were everywhere and be there by 1030 to hear the water organ play or every 2hrs after.
