The Garden Landscape Guide

Villa Giulia

The Villa di Papa Giulia was designed by Vignola with advice by Vasari, Ammannati and Michelangelo. It is now known as the Villa Giulia and houses the Etruscan Museum. The most important historic feature is the sunken nymphaeum, attributed to Vignola. The rest of the garden has changed and now contains a reconstructed Etruscan Temple

    I have been there during the winter. I do not remember these gardens to be extraordinary, but maybe was this due to the season? They were nice however. Lovely grotto.

    This is a great villa in Rome to have a wonder round with the family. There is an entrance fee. However you can spend a good deal of time here for that fee.

    The architecture itself is fabulous. The paintings on the ceiling must be looked at. Build for a pope and now available to us all. It is a great few hours experience.

    There are a number of things to see and do and you will leave with some great memories and photos. Here is more information and pictures of Villa Giulia
