We have summer al fresco dining that lasts into the evening under café lights above. In winter, our al fresco dining is under our heated porticos with chairs covered in furs to help stay warm.

The fountain is at the center of the piazza. You can simply listen to the sound of the water—throw coins for a wish—or take a photograph to remember your Villa Bellezza visit.
