Everything You Need To Know About Villa D Este & Villa Adriana
VILLA D ESTE
Extensive gardens, Renaissance sculptures, musical fountains and Italian marble. An enchanting garden that preserves its beauty intact till nowadays. A UNESCO HERITAGE SITE that take us back to the century XVI, when it served as a Palatial Residence.
Used to living with luxuries, Hipolito, in the 16 century, wanted to own an insanely lovely residence. So he ordered Pirro Ligorio, the architect, to transform his lands in what is now The Villa d’Este.
Apart from being a park, it also preserves old rooms decorated with Renaissance paintings that narrate biblical episodes together with sculptures. Check out some of the photos I got to capture.
Villa Adriana it’s everything an archaeologist has ever dreamed of. Back in II B.C, the villa served as a small city surrounded with fountains, palaces, and classical building of the time. Perfuming the essence of Egyptians and Greeks architectural styles, now Villa Adriana stands out for being an incredible place to contemplate history.
Its construction was mainly due to Adriano motivation for finally leaving the unhappy palace of the Palatine. The villa was built as a place of retirement first, then after Adriano’s death it started to be used by several successors. Until the end when it turned into ruins that were looted.
