Tivoli Day Trip from Rome: Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Loved this day trip to Tivoli. The day was rainy but we had umbrellas. You are outside most of the day, so wear comfortable walking shoes and wear a coat if it's chilly or rainy. I wouldn't recommend this tour for small kids. Lots of stairs, lots of walking, but well worth it! The ruins at Hadrian's Villa were very interesting. Our archeologist guide, Elizabetha, did a fantastic job describing and explaining things. The highlight, however, was the visit to Villa d'Este. Oh my goodness. The water falls and landscaping and fountains were spectacular! For lunch we ate at a restaurant called Trattoria de Falcon. Excellent food!

My Review

Not only the highlight of my trip to Rome but possibly the highlight of my life! Our guide hustled our group right to an edge explaining that the side seats are the best because the Pope drives around in a jeep. You are closer if you are on an edge. She then gave an interesting explanation of the Vatican, the Basilica etc. The time we were waiting for the Pope flew by. She also recommended side trips to see in Rome that are off the beaten path. Then at 9:30 Pope Francis appeared with his entourage in the jeep. He was so smiley. I could hardly take pictures my hands were shaking and I had so many tears in my eyes! It was a very moving emotional experience! I highly recommend booking this tour!

My Review

Our guide, David, made this tour what it was. Exceptional. He was knowledgable, entertaining, spoke great English, articulated well and was patient. The Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica were amazing. The entire tour was wonderful. Just fantastic. You would miss so much doing the museum without a guide. He added so much insight and just enough information. Loved this tour!
