Villa d'Este, a former 16th century princely residence, surrounded by a 25 acres park, is more than just a hotel. The luxury and magnificence of a bygone era is maintained intact. They simply added all the up-to-date facilities. Upon emerging from the revolving doors you feel the cares of the modern world slip away and the warm greetings of the staff make you feel at home. The guestrooms, the corridors, the Hall and the public rooms are decorated with antique furnishing and art works which give the hotel a palatial atmosphere.

The Art
On the ground floor visit the Colonne Room with its biblical paintings. In the Flora Room the statue of Eros and Psyche from the School of Antonio Canova and the 16th century Adam and Eve Carrara marble statues by Marco Antonio Prestinari in the Canova Bar. The Napoleone Room named after the Emperor who planned to visit but never showed up.

The Gardens
The design of the lower part of the gardens is from the Renaissance period. The two most outstanding landmarks are the 500 year old plane tree and the 16th century Mosaic with its Nympheum. Apart from the topiary hedges and the bushes of bamboo, azaleas, camellias, oleanders, rhododendrons, hydrangeas, there are roses and jasmine bushes. The trees range from chestnut, magnolia, oleafragrans, wisteria, palm, cypress, pine, ilex, privet, mediar to many others.
