Seeing the Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'esme presented a different view of Rome. Its amazing to see what was accomplished by the Romans.
If you’re looking to escape the bustle of Rome in favor of Tivoli’s hilltop tranquility, opt for a stress-free day trip that takes care of transport, entrance fees, and lunch. A great choice for history buffs, this excursion covers the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este, and provides commentary featuring historical information you may have otherwise missed.
Your day trip begins with pickup from central Rome, where you’ll board an air-conditioned coach destined for the 2,000-year-old town of Tivoli. On arrival, take a guided walking tour of Hadrian’s Villa—a UNESCO World Heritage Site and former estate of a Roman emperor—and learn about what daily life would have been like here in AD 128.
Following lunch at a traditional Roman restaurant, head to Villa d’Este, a former Benedictine convent that was transformed into a Renaissance palace. Explore the gardens with a guide and admire the famous Fountain of Neptune before returning to your coach for drop-off back in Rome.
