Villa D’Este Gardens in Tivoli

By Lucas Mariconda
We had the great pleasure of visiting this ancient Villa and its amazing gardens in July. The Villa D’este Gardens in Tivoli were created in the 16th century and are a splendid example of Italian Renaissance architecture. We saw some of the most marvellous water features ever built in a garden. The garden itself is set high up in the mountains just outside Rome, where the climate is just a tad cooler and the views from the gardens simply wondrous. Today the Palace & Gardens are a UNESCO world heritage site.

We cover suggestions for deciduous, evergreen and topiary trees for small gardens.
