Tivoli, Hadrian's Villa & Villa d'Este
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.
