Stunning beautiful villa definitively worth a visit. Only the ground floor is wheelchair accessible (entrance from the garden, at the back of the main entrance which is all stairs) but the ground floor is well worth a visit with it's many frescoed rooms.

Amazing artwork and a step back into renaissance Italy. Also not very crowded due to distance from Rome. Well worth the visit and great value for money at only 5 euros per person.
