Tivoli Day Trip from Rome: Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa, with English-speaking guide
From US$69.27

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.

Best in spring because there are no lines, and less humidity. Oppulent, succulent how the emperors subsided on their watch.

Enjoyed the tour

Our tour guide Alfredo Chiari was an excellent guide; engaging, knowledgable, and patient with group members who wandered off. His background is in archeology, so his enthusiasm and expertise was certainly on display at Hadriian's Villa. He made the site/digs/history come alive. We spent less...More
