Stand down, gamblers—this “casino” simply means “little house.” Built around 1770, this unique and unexpected little architectural gem sits in the middle of a suburban park. The tiny neoclassical exterior is exquisitely proportioned, with Corinthian columns and elaborate detail around the white stone cornices. Inside, unlikely though it seems from the compact exterior, 16 rooms are decorated with rich 18th-century architectural details, such as beautiful plasterwork ceilings and subtly curved windows. Entry is by tour only, but the cheerful guides help put it all into context.
