Half Day Tour to Tivoli - Villa Adriana & Villa D’Este

Discover the amazing history of Tivoli on this ever popular day tour. Among the highlights are the 2nd century Emperor Hadrian's Villa and the remarkable Villa d'Este gardens.

Take the ancient Via Tiburtina 30km east of Rome, where this tour takes you to visit and compare two very splendid villas from two different ages: the Villa Adriana dating back to Roman Times and the Villa D'Este from the Renaissance period.

At the foot of the Tiburtini Hills is the famous spa town of Bagni di Tivioli which is dominated by vast quarries of travertine marble - your first stop is here to visit the ruins of Villa Adriana built by Emperor Hadrian to remind him of the monuments and sites he had admired during his travels in the East.

You will then tour to Villa D'Este, one of the most beautiful residences of the Renaissance, with countless fountains set in the heart of magnificent Italian style gardens.

This was one of the first giardini delle meraviglie and an early model for the development of European gardens.
