Twice a visit today alone. An exceptional location and saw very little of it since it occupies a good area structured submissively. Spacious, manicured, lavender studded in some areas. The monumental structures were in frontal locations by the brick pillared canopied loggias. Lavender studded doric...More

Unfortunately, for us, the church is currently closed for renovation, but it's still possibly to wander, and wonder, around the nearly all the site. Wonderfully peaceful and interesting. Due visit via Corso Ercole 1 D'Este. The lane looks like the subject of a Pissaro painting,...More

This is a beautiful, tranquil place with stunning architecture. However, it is a cemetery, a place of respect, were locals come to honour their loved ones, so don't expect ice-cream parlours and people having picnics on the grass.
