I have been to several Roman archeological sites, and this one still impressed me. The Maritime Theatre was the hidden jewel, more so then the lake and statues, seen in every website. Highly recommended, not to be missed!

You can easily purchase your entrance ticket at Villa Adriana when you get there. There is a ticket office and a very nice gift shop there. There's no need to make any advance purchase online.
