Villa d'Este Gardens and more.....


Starting from your hotel in the center of Rome we will journey Eastward bound towards the Apennine Mountains & the region of Abruzzo.
We will visit the Estate perched high above the city of Tivoli and a UNESCO World Heritage site called Villa d'Este'. It is a fine example of Renaissance architecture and the Italian Renaissance garden period of the 15th Century. Exploring both the remarkable works of Pirro Ligorio, who was responsible for the iconographic programs worked out in the Villa's frescos and the technical designs for the fountains by a Frenchman, Claude Venard, who was a manufacturer of hydraulic organs that we will hear playing during our visit.
After experiencing the Villa and it's beautiful gardens, you will enjoy a true Roman Wine Tasting Lunch before returning to the Center of Rome.

A Recent Review of this tour

Caron M was our guide for this amazing tour. She picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the town of Tivoli. Once at the Villa d'Este it was wonder after wonder. Caron knew the history of the place and was obviously quite familiar with the gardens and fountains. An enjoyable and educational way to spend a morning. Afterwards Caron took us to a magnificent restaurant for a fantastic lunch. The tour was fantastic as was our guide. She has a sparkling personality and a wealth of knowledge.
