An amazing site just about 30-45 minutes from Rome. I did this on a day tour that included the Villa d'Este. I thought it was amazing. So well preserved. You can see some original marble and mosaics. The pool towards the end is stunningly beautiful. I loved it!

On the face of it, Hadrian's Villa promises so much. A large, sprawling site set in a beautiful setting with large, imposing ruins to explore. So much history to discover, so much wealth and decadence to experience from such an iconic Emperor. Sadly though, the rude, disinterested staff, lack of any support materials and the so called information boards detracted... More

Do not miss Villa Adriana, near Tivoli, just 30 minutes away from Rome center. I recommend going there with a guided tour or private guide to appreciate this enormous complex built by Hadrian. We left Rome at 09:00 and returned by 13:30 in a private car. I guess in summer it has to be very hot as it is an... More

Reposted due to some errors in my original review, stemming from an incorrect 'smart' phone auto correct. Instead of saying that there were no facilities, I said that there were no factories on site, which is true, but not what I was trying to say. No options to amend and resubmit. So, anyway, as I said before, with some additional... More

These ruins are great to visit and another example of the incredible places Hadrian built. I highly recommend doing this with a guide otherwise you really don't appreciate what this place was like and the history of it.

Absolutely love this large historical complex. Visited on a bitterly cold sunny day, which was not typical for Italian winter. Nevertheless, the beauty and the scale of this villa can't fail to impress. Highly recommended.

It is extremely satisfying and enjoying to walk in these very quiet and extremely large place surrounded by a gorgeous nature with many wonderful trees and by the ruins of astonishing buildings of this ancient estate of the Roman emperor Adriano. There are 2 wonderful large and long water pool. One of them is decorated by statues. You will be... More

This is one of the top archaeological finds in the Mediterranean, and certainly Italian, area. A massive sight, Hadrians personal residence, more like city, only 1/3 discovered, it is yielding new information all the time. A nice drive through the Roman countryside gets you out of the bustling City for a few hours. A model in the visitor center helps... More

Our tour allowed just a morning to see this, you could spend several days. It's a bit misleading to call it a villa as it has many buildings, including three bathing pools, and vast splendid gardens.
