Tivoli Day Trip from Rome: Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa, with English-speaking guide
From US$63.63
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.

Such a beautiful place!

We included a trip to Tivoli since we had a car. We stayed in Ostia to miss most of the Rome traffic. Nice drive to Tivoli. Parked the car, walked through town and went to Villa d'Estes and that made the trip! Wow!

A real wonder

The gardens at the Villa d’Este are so amazing it is hard to put into words. Some of them shoot 80 feet into the air without the use of a pump! The river was channeled long ago to provide the power for these lovely fountains,...More
