Fodor's Review

A bishop's residence that dates back to at least the 12th century, the villa was formerly called Villa di Sangro and is currently closed to the public with no sign of scheduled renovations commencing. Amid the gardens and ruins, Andre Gide found inspiration for his novel The Immoralist, Italy's King Vittorio Emanuele III abdicated in favor of his son in 1944, and Jackie Kennedy enjoyed breaks from her obligations as First Lady during a much-publicized 1962 visit.
