Tivoli, Hadrian's Villa & Villa d'Este
Venture out of the city and into the Italian countryside. Located in the historic town of Tivoli, the beautiful Villa d'Este and the Roman emperor Hadrian's Villa showcase the ingenuity of Italian architecture throughout the ages.
Join your private guide on an excursion through the countryside surrounding Rome. Around 40 kilometres from the city lies Tivoli, a beautiful hilltop town. Here you'll find two impressive villas - Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este. The Emperor Hadrian built his villa here during the 2nd century, as he wasn't fond of his Roman palace, and created a huge complex with more than 30 buildings covering 250 acres. In the afternoon, you'll explore the 16th-century Villa d'Este, home of the influential Borgia family and a stunning Renaissance villa boasting beautiful gardens.
