Villa Cetinale

If you’re craving a classic experience in an iconic Italian palace, then Villa Cetinale is for you. Hidden in the heart of an oak forest in Tuscany, this breathtaking estate exists outside of time. Dating back to 1651, the Cardinal of Rome began building his home on the grounds, turning it into the beautiful, baroque masterpiece you see today. 

As you walk through its doors you will step back in time as you are immersed in the perfectly preserved world of Villa Cetinale, filled with antique furniture, art and artefacts. Perhaps even more beautiful than the home are the gardens. Filled with ancient fruit trees, sculptures from famous artists, and cypress trees that pierce the sky, you are sure to find peace in this stunning oasis. Make sure to find the hillside staircase which was built to give you a view of the monumental estate in its entirety!
