Within 16th century Villa Lante, one of Italy’s finest Renaissance gardens. This breathtaking multi-level garden, designed by Sienese architect Tommaso Chiucci, sits atop the highest point of the charming Lazio village of Bagnaia. At the beginning of the 16th century, Cardinal Raffaele Riario began creating Villa Lante, starting with construction of a wall to enclose 22 hectares. That land was developed into a hunting reserve, now a lovely park, and the terraced garden. Subsequent owners, including Cardinal De Gambara, continued to improve and add on to the garden.
