Overlooking the vast Roman countryside, Tivoli has been coveted by Roman Emperors (such as Emperor Hadrian) and Popes as a preferred countryside retreat.

After lunch, your Tivoli Villas tour will continue to Villa d'Este. On Mondays, Villa d'Este opens at 2 PM.


VILLA D'ESTE -  Renaissance Italian Gardens and Opulent Villa

Commissioned in the 1550s by  Cardinal Ippolito D'Este,  this villa was designed to be a visual and sensory marvel. Its walls, adorned with frescoes that push the boundaries of imagination, serve as a canvas for the genius of artists who graced this illustrious era. These frescoes offer a window into a world where art, culture, and creativity flourished.

But it's when you step into the sumptuous Italian-style garden that Villa d'Este truly enchants. Here, you're welcomed by an orchestrated symphony of fountains, natural grottoes, and meticulously crafted stone sculptures. These crystalline pools, gracing the villa's elegant slopes, are not mere adornments; they mirror the grandeur and opulence of the Renaissance.

The villa's external fountains are veritable water theaters, each with its unique narrative. The Rometta, also known as "Little Rome", features a sculpture of an enthroned divinity representing the city of Rome itself. Then there's the impressive Fontana dell'Ovata, better known as the Fontana di Tivoli and the row of fountains known as One Hundred Fountains.

Not to be missed are the Fontana del Bicchierone, a creation by the masterful Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and the renowned "musical fountains" – the Fontana degli Uccelli and the Fontana dell'Organo, which was intended to produce mesmerizing musical sounds as water flows through them. The Fontana della Proserpina, characterized by its austere structure and central nymphaeum guarded by two spiral columns, was once believed to be the Fountain of the Emperors.

And lastly, the delightful Fountain of Neptune, one of the most photographed spots for tourists and townspeople alike, adds an extra layer of allure to this already captivating landscape.
