Discover two of the most significant and well-preserved Villas of the Italian culture.
Explore the UNESCO sites of Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa and discover with an informative guide two very important periods of the Italian history.
I will meet you at your hotel and from that moment you will start a journey back in time.
You will visit first the Emperor Hadrian's villa, built in the 2nd century, reflecting the extremely sophisticated and modern man's personality that designed the villa using all he had seen around the world.
You will have in front of your eyes Greek, Roman and Egyptian elements fused together in a breathtaking view.
After this, be prepared to leave the ancient history to reach the Italian Renaissance in Villa D'Este. Another villa, another man, another personality. You will know the Cardinal Ippolito d'Este walking the frescoed rooms of his Villa and the majesty of his garden full of fountains. The complete monument of the Italian Renaissance and an incomparable example of the Italian Garden.
