  3. Casino Marino


This unusual building is located at Marino, about three miles north of the city centre. Designed by Sir William Chambers, it is considered one of the finest 18th-century neo-classical buildings in Europe. Its history doesn't concern gambling, however: casino means a "small house". This building looks small from the outside but is in fact a work of spatial ingenuity: sixteen finely decorated rooms elegantly open out of each other and every inch of the interior is utilized. The Casino has been sensitively maintained (although some unsympathetic Victorian additions compromise the serenity of the whole) and while it is a little off the beaten track, it is well worth a visit.
