The gardens were established on the site of vineyards or Renaissance gardens attached to aristocratic palaces. The steep terrain has been refashioned into several terrace levels. The Palace Gardens are linked nowadays and their composition makes up a unique garden complex. All of the gardens have varied architectural decoration, decorative staircases, balustrades, lookout terraces and small pavilions.
The Palace Gardens date from the 17th and 18th centuries when they were created for the owners of the adjoining palaces. They were restored in the 1990s and contain a Renaissance loggia with frescoes of Pompeii and a baroque portal with sundial that catches the sunlight reflected off the water in a Triton fountain.
