Villa Giusti Garden

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian)

The Giusti Gardens are one of the finest examples of a sixteenth-century garden to have survived virtually intact. The gardens masterfully exploit the site and are organised on a long axis that begins at the entrance, which, following the avenue of cypress trees, guides the  eye to the focal point of the grotesque stone mask and the belvedere, located on top of a rocky ridge. The level section of the gardens has been designed in the classic style of an Italian garden, while the section that winds up the hill could be described as a prototype of the landscaped style.

The elaborate parterres of the level section are decorated with antique statues, while a frame to the right contains a labyrinth. The cypress avenue leads to the Cave of Mirrors, an artificial cave hollowed out of the rock that has been lined with shells, landscape paintings and mirrors that create the illusion of a loggia overlooking the gardens.
Further along, the base of the buttresses that support the hill stands a tower with an internal carved spiral staircase; this connects the middle section of the gardens to the upper section that enjoys enchanting views.
