Villa Adriana and Villa d'Este with gardens


Tivoli is a little town 18 miles east of Rome, situated at the edge of Apennines Mountains. In the ancient times it was a very powerful city, but after the roman conquest it became a famous residential area, chosen by rich noble families to build their villas. Nowadays the town still preserves a nice medieval historic centre.
The two most important sites in Tivoli are:
Villa Adriana, built by roman emperor Hadrian as his official seat. Today it's a wonderful archeological park where nature matches with amazing roman ruins.
Villa d'Este, the residence of cardinal Ippolito d'Este, that was governor of Tivoli during the Renaissance. It has been recently restored and it will surprise you with its wonderful garden, famous all over Europe for majestic fountains and watergames.

Itinerary

Highlights:
> Villa Adriana, an incredible archaeological site with 300 acres of grounds
>> The Villa
>> The Palace
>> The Gardens
> Villa d'Este with its 16th century fountains
>> The Buildings

In the museums, in the archaeological sites and in general in all the Roman churches dress code for both men and women requires shoulders and knees to be covered. Shorts and skirts are fine, but below knees. Do not bring large items (e. g. large bags, backpacks, long umbrellas…) on tour because they are not permitted in the Vatican Museums and in the Colosseum.
