Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este Half-Day Trip from Rome. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
I highly recommend this tour both for the content and the presentations of the local guide.
Fantastic tour. Villa d'Este was a highlight. On a hot day would be respite from the heat. Our guide was informative. I would have preferred more time here than Hadrians Villa. The fountains are spectacular. You would not realize d'Este was there if you did not have the tour. Thank you, Karen.
Amazing gardens. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Even the rain couldn't dampen our guide's enthusiasm.
Easy to find tour premises.Great bus, fantastic guide and 2 superb historic sites. Great value again for a terrific tour not to be missed. Thank you so very much once again !
Excellent tour and great guide. Tour really worth doing. Viator very professional in handling of booking. Great idea in sending reminders, much appreciated.
A fabulous tour. Such beautiful grounds and great historical value. Our guide was excellent and the length of the tour is just right.
Unfortunately, we had a very rainy afternoon for the tour, however, this still turned out to be wonderful. The guide was good and did the best she could with the time she had to work with.
The trip was excellent. Hadrian's Villa was totally amazing. We are so glad we went.
What a delightful and beautiful afternoon we spent at Villa d'Este! It is beautiful beyond belief.
Excellent day , both well worth the visit .My only comment would be that each place warrants a whole day .
Great guide. Definantly worth seeing the different styles of buildungs
Beautiful!!!! Oh, I had seen the fountains 40 years ago and they are still going! It was so refreshing to go back.
What a glorious surprise. This trip was worth the entire Rome venture. Hadrian's villa was interesting, but WOW the Villa d'este was unbelieveable.
Great tour, if you would like to get out of Rome for the day. Lots of history and the gardens are amazing... Just wish it was a full day tour, rather than a half day tour.
A great way to see two "not to be missed" parts of a visit to Rome
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 hours trip and thought this is the best tour we had join in Europe thus far! The lady guide, Catelina (spelling?) was fluent in at least four languages - English, Spanish, French and Italian. She had allocated just enough time for us to visit both villas - Hadrian's first and Villa d' Este second. But this had resulted in long waits for tickets for the latter villa, don't know if it would be better the other way round since Hadrian's seemed to attract much lesser tourists???
The other lacking thing is, the guide has forgotten the 'visit loo/toilet' requirements of her charge, not pointing out where to go or when to go instructions. But we asked for directions and headed on our own to the loo first!
Overall, this is one tour that you should NOT miss when in Italy ... trust me, as I have been there 12 times by now. It is indeed a very well organised tour. (Bus driver will sell mineral water on board for 1 euro)
Pick-up at hotel was a bonus and the whole experience was well organised. Guide good and the only small citicism is that there was not enough time allocated to the Villa d'Este gardens.
