Visit the two treasures of Tivoli on this enchanting day trip: Hadrian's Villa, built by Roman Emperor Hadrian as a retreat from Palatine Hill, and Villa d'Este, where you can stroll alongside beautiful fountains and gardens.
After picking you up from your hotel, the tour will leave Rome and head to Tivoli, popular during the Roman Empire as a place for rest and relaxation, and the summer holiday destination of choice for historical figures like Emperor Hadrian.
Your first stop will be Hadrian's Villa, one of the most important buildings constructed in the 2nd century under Hadrian's rule, who had it built because he wasn't happy in his palace on Palatine Hill.
Hadrian's Villa is a complex set in luscious green gardens and made up of a number of palaces, fountains and baths influenced by Greek and Egyptian architectural styles.
The tour will then take you into Tivoli town, where you'll make your second stop at the Villa d'Este, a luxurious Renaissance residence whose walls and ceilings are decorated with ornate frescos.
The palazzo itself is spectacular, and its extraordinary gardens even more so. Amongst its dense greenery are more than 500 fountains and sculptures, including favourites like The Hundred Fountains and The Fountain of the Organ.
After exploring these two jewels of the Roman Empire, you'll return to Rome, where you can be dropped off in the city centre or near your hotel, if you'd prefer.
The tour includes pick up from any of the hotels in the centre of Rome. If you're staying in an apartment or a bed and breakfast, please go to the meeting point (Vittorio Emanuele Orlando 95, between Termini station and Plaza Barberini) to start your tour.
If on your selected date there is a temporary exhibition in either of the villas, the guide will ask you for an additional payment of €3.
