the archaeological site of Hadrian's Villa and fountains of Villa d'Este


In this chauffeured tour we'll spend a day visiting the Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este in Tivoli
In the 2nd century AD, the Roman Emperor Hadrian built a wonderful Villa and he spent years here, when not travelling around the Empire. We'll see ancient domes, baths, mosaics and the Maritime Theater (his private retreat).
After a nice lunch in a panoramic restaurant in the old town of Tivoli, we'll be ready for the visit of Villa d'Este.
The Villa was built for the Cardinal Ippolito d'Este (Governor of Tivoli from 1550) and is famous for its terraced Gardens. Walking up and down ramps and stairways you admire the gardens and its five hundred jets in fountains, pools and waterfalls.

--> Private driver at your service for the entire day. If not interested in both villas, send me a message.
We can do a morning tour in one site only.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our day trip to Tivoli to visit Hadrian's Villa and the Villa d'Este was exceptionally informative and fun. Marisa is a truly charming guide with archaeological expertise and perspective that most guides would not have. I've were also pleased to have an individualized tour of places hat hordes of tourists gave yet to discover. All in all, a memorable experience--ruins, views, fountains, gardens, and new knowledge!
