Tivoli Day Trip from Rome: Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa, with English-speaking guide
From US$101.06
Overview

Combine visits to two of Tivoli's UNESCO World Heritage sites—Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa—on this full-day guided trip from Rome. Get an inside look at the lives of the Roman elite through your guide's commentary as you walk through lush private gardens and take in archaeological ruins. Best of all, you’ll do all of this while leaving the driving to someone else.

What to Expect

Meet your guide and group in a central Rome location, then find a seat in the climate-controlled bus for the ride to Tivoli. On the way, your guide will fill you in on fascinating details about the UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Stop first at Hadrian's Villa, one of the ancient Roman elite's prestigious vacation spots. Your guide will lead you through the more than 30 buildings, built for Emperor Hadrian's lover and consisting of libraries, temples, and thermal baths, connected by underground tunnels.

Break for free time and lunch (own expense). Then move on to Villa d'Este, where you'll learn about its history. Built for Lucrezia Borgia's son in the 15th century, the villa includes gardens with fountains, waterfalls, and old-growth trees.

After a full day of exploring, relax and enjoy the scenery on the way back to Rome.

Beautiful

I went here as a trip with my school group August of 2013. This place is beautiful and huge. The water fountains, and gardens are pure art. Lovely and extremely calming. Wasn’t wheelchair accessible tho.

a highlight

One of the highlights of our 3 week trip to Italy. A full day with plenty of walking. If you are in reasonable shape then book this trip.

When in Rome go see these two historic site, you will not be disappointed

Whilst Hadrian's villa is mainly a ruin there's still lots to see, the scale of the site is jaw dropping, and it also helps to understand the history of the site before going to Villa d'Este. The gardens at Villa d'Este are amazing, there so...More

BEST IN SPRING

Best in spring because there are no lines, and less humidity. Oppulent, succulent how the emperors subsided on their watch.
