Located in the countryside about 40 minutes from Rome, Tivoli is one of the most popular destinations from Rome. There you will find the famous Villa D’Este and Villa Adriana.
The exquisite Renaissance-era Villa d’Este invites you to enjoy its impressive symphony of countless fountains, natural caves (grotto), carved stone sculptures, and pools of water throughout its elegant sloped Italian-style garden.
The opulent Villa D’Este is one of the most beautiful residences of the Renaissance built by the Cardinal Ippolito D’Este in the 1550’s. Wall to all frescoes will inspire awe of the greatness of artists of that era.
On this Tivoli Villas Tour, you will also appreciate time on your own for a relaxing lunch and a stroll through the charming town of Tivoli.
A historic hilltop city with ancient roots shrouded in legends of Greek mythology, Tivoli may have been settled as far back as the 13th century BC. Tivoli thrived through the millennia from the ancient Etruscans to Romans, then the Middle Ages and Renaissance that have left vestiges of the city's glorious past.
Overlooking the vast Roman countryside, Tivoli has been coveted by Roman Emperors (such as Emperor Hadrian) and Popes as a preferred countryside retreat.
Hadrian’s Villa (Villa Adriana) was an ancient 2nd century A.C. Roman imperial complex comprising of 30 buildings constructed by Roman Emperor Hadrian (Adriano).
Born in 76 AD and later succeeded Trajan as Emperor of Rome, Hadrian was one of ancient Rome’s most notable figures. Emperor Hadrian supervised the construction of the villa himself and included architectural elements that remind him of his world travels.
This expansive countryside retreat fit for emperors showcases the remains of a once magnificent palace, luxurious gardens, pools, opulent baths, libraries, theaters, temples, and apartments at the height of the Roman Empire. Underground, there were also several passages and tunnels.
Towards the end of his reign, Hadrian ruled the Roman Empire from this very place in Tivoli. Abandoned during the decline of the Roman Empire, the imperial complex was rediscovered by Pope Pius II in 15th century, and excavations on the site were initiated. Although only some of the many original structures still survive, you will find delightful surprises waiting at the turn of each corner.

We visited Rome this October 2016 and had the pleasure of two tours: Tivoli and Villa d"Este and Assisi. Our driver, Sylvester, was extremely knowledgeable, prompt and personable. He arranged two wonderful lunches at fine restaurants in Tivoli and Assisi. We recommend Stefano highly.
