Description

Stroll through the ruins of Hadrian’s Villa in the ancient Roman town of Tivoli during this guided day tour. Enjoy stunning views of the Roman Campagna, low-lying pastoral countryside, and visit the Villa d’Este, a 16th century villa renowned for its terraced hillside Italian Renaissance gardens.

Leave the hustle and bustle of Rome behind as you’re shuttled to nearby Tivoli, a resort area used by ancient Romans to retreat from the capital. Covered in many villas at the height of its popularity, the most famous which remains is Hadrian’s Villa, a large complex with many pools, fountains, and classical Greek architecture. Walk around this compound as your guide details its history, showing you where landscaped gardens and cultivated farmlands once prospered.

After a break for lunch, head through the Roman Campagna to visit the Villa d’Este, whose magnificent gardens are famous for their many spectacular fountains. When you approach the villa, the grandiose Fountain of Neptune comes into view, shooting water high into the air before the villa's multi-tiered façade. Wander through the manor’s colourful interior and then stop by the Oval Fountain and The Hundred Fountains as you tour the extravagant grounds before heading back to Rome.

What a fantastic day! We had an excellent guide — thank you Joseph! Both villas were beautiful and it was a great way to get out of the city and see the countryside.

Excellent tour guide! Jo was very knowledgeable and gave us enough time to take photos. She's so friendly and easy to understand. The sites themselves were incredible. Highly recommended!

This was an excellent experience. We met and returned at the tour companies office just across the street fromnthe Rome Terminal train station: easy to get to by train, bus, or cab. We travelled in comfortable vans with w wonferfully articate and knowledgable guide. My wife asks lots of questions and they were all answered. The tour included all admissions and a delicious lunch at a local restaurant in Tivoli. There is some walking required, and the gardens are on the side of a hill, so there are steps.
