Villa Farnese, Caprarola

The first stop was Caprarola, where the Villa Farnese sits perched on a hill above the surrounding town. The site, which features a pentagonal Renaissance villa, was designed by Vignola in 1559 for Cardinal Alessandro Farnese.

The trip concluded in Bomarzo where the chilling, monumental sculptures of the Monster Park create a sort of theme park of foliage and rock.
