Beatiful Palladian villa, with wonderful unique decorations and garden around. It is a must see point if you are looking for architectural jems Although i would expect the villa's gift shop to be a bit more appealing.

I have come to love the Paladio style. It is so simple yet stunning; it is eminently zen in its perfect proportions. I could have stayed in the garden forever, slowly pacing the parameter, admiring the statuary, taking pictures of roses on old stone walls.
