Set atop the Palantine Hill, Horti Farnesiani is a winding series of stairs and terraces featuring unique architecture from the 16th and 17th centuries. Some of the sights include fountains, gardens, and vistas of the surrounding areas. A particularly remarkable landmark is the Teatro del Fontanone, which is a plaza of watermouths, pools and staircases.

Horti Farnesiani derives its name from the Farnese family. It was designed for Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, who was Pope Paul III's nephew. Alessandro Farnese eventually married a woman from the powerful merchant Medici family, Margherita de' Medici, and the Medici family helped to improve the design of Horti Farnesiani.
