Hadrian's Villa (Villa Adriana) and Villa d'Este in Tivoli
The Italian town of Tivoli, just east of Rome, is home to luxe residences, splendid villas, and two famous UNESCO World Heritage sites: the Renaissance palace of Villa d'Este, known for its extravagant, gardens and water fountains, and the ruins of Hadrian's Villa (Villa Adriana), the grand second-century estate of Emperor Hadrian of ancient Rome. A visit to both sites entails garden walks and a variety of ancient architectural styles—not to mention a quiet, elegant escape from the city and some of the best natural water in Italy.

The Basics

Departing from Rome, most Tivoli tours include visits to both Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa. Discover the favorite vacation spot of the Renaissance period at the famous Villa d'Este, commissioned by Cardinal Ippolito, and take in its highlights: the views from the Vialone Terrace and the movie-famous Oval Fountain and Hundred Fountains. At Hadrian's Villa, you'll tour the archaeological remains of temples, libraries, and thermal baths, including the Maritime Theater, set on a man-made island at the center of a round pool; the grand Piazza d'oro; the Imperial Palace; and the Canopus, a replica of the sanctuary of Serapis near Alexandria. Choose a half-day tour or full-day trip through the Lazio countryside with an expert tour guide to get the most out of your visit to the historic sites.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • A skip-the-line ticket for Hadrian’s Villa allows travelers to maximize their time at the countryside villa.
  • Choose a full-day tour that includes lunch for a meal in the classical city of Tivoli.
  • If you don’t wish to travel by train, book a charter tour or a private tour that includes transportation.

How To Get to Tivoli From Rome
Tivoli is set about 19 miles (30 km) east of Rome and can be reached from the city by public transport. Take the bus from the Ponte Mammolo metro station or the Roma-Pescara train line from Tiburtina station.

When to Get There
The Villa d'Este is open from 8:30am to either 5pm or 7:45pm, depending on the season, while Hadrian's Villa is open from 9am to 5pm or 7pm, depending on season. Given Tivoli’s many gardens, spring is a great time to visit.
