Inspired by Roman villas (Villa d'Este among others), this magnificent villa is set on a hill that overlooks Turin and the Alps.
Despite having being bombed in WWII, the villa has been recently restored and regained part of its past glory. The extraordinary main hall with its trompe l'oeil frescoes gives an excellent idea of what a XVIIth century villa looked like. Few rooms are displaying wonderful baroque settings and the views on the gardens are just magnificent. The garden itself is small and like an amphitheater arround the villa, punctuate by 3 "follies" i.e small pavillons in the Renaissance/Baroque taste.
I believe it would be a pity to spend time in Turin without visiting this unique place.
