What to Expect
Travel from Rome to Tivoli in an air-conditioned sedan or minivan to start your day trip. As you travel, listen to your guide’s commentary on Tivoli, a historic city in the hills of the Tiburtini Mountains. Prestigious holiday resort at the time of Ancient Rome. Tivoli is now famous for its two UNESCU World Heritage Sites: Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este.
The first stop in Tivoli includes Hadrian’s Villa walking tour. Hear how the villa belonged to Emperor Hadrian, who longed for a holiday home away from the hustle and bustle of Rome. By modern standards, his “humble abode” could be regarded as a real city. The ruins of the impressive estate are made up of more than 30 buildings, and you’ll see the highlights as you explore. Discover the complex ruins of the ancient imperial palace, as well as the baths, temples, libraries and underground passages large enough for vehicles.
Enjoy a lunch break at your own expense, then continue to Villa d’Este: explore the former Benedictine convent and find out why many consider the villa one of the most beautiful of the Renaissance era.
As you explore, hear how Villa d’Este was built as an opulent abode for the son of Lucrezia Borgia, a 15th-century duchess, who drew drama and gossip wherever she went. Pass the Neptune Fountain and stroll the gardens to see waterfalls, fountains, and century-old trees.
Leave Villa d’Este after your tour, and then relax on your journey back to Rome.
