The Casina del Cardinal Bessarione is an unusual example of a Renaissance villa outside the city in an area full of testimonials to the Republican and Imperial eras.
At the beginning of the fourteenth century, the site was used as a small hospital, then as a monastery and finally in the mid-1800s, it became a country inn.
Particularly noteworthy is the facade that has two large Guelph cross windows and a loggia. Inside, two large rooms are decorated with frescoes and furnished with renaissance works. The restoration work has also brought back the interior decoration and the pleasant Italian garden to their ancient splendor.
