Antonio brought Hadrian's Villa to life for us. I was not prepared for how extensive the villa grounds are. Antonio was able to answer all my botany questions, and pointed out the important sites. It was amazing to see olive trees and cypress trees that were more than 1000 years old.
This tour was amazing!
Our first stop was a little slower but once we got to the garden part of the last stop with the fountains it was unbelievable. I did not want to leave. Incredible experience. A place to propose , very romantic and beautiful.
This was a very good tour with lots of good information from our tour guides. Both the Villa's of Hadrian and d'Este were well worth the short 45 minute ride outside of Rome. The 100 fountains at the Villa d'Este were truly beautiful. I highly recommend this half day tour.
We loved this tour. I booked it to see Hadrian's Villa, but I fell in love with Villa d'Este and Tivoli instead!! My only complaint was not having enough time in Tivoli as it was easily the most beautiful place I've ever been in my life. I could have spent a day there easily. The fountains and gardens were stunningly beautiful. We also loved Hadrian's Villa - it was a marvel. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient. We also had time to break off from the group and explore the gardens. I would go back in a heartbeat.
Fantastic and a great guid. There were only 9 of us and Villa d'Este was like a private shoeing. Our guide spoke Enlish, French, Spanish and then Italian to the driver. Our 9 were from Chile, Argentina, France, England, Israel and USA.. Just simply a wonderful tour.
Very good guide and great way to spend a few hours out of the city
This tour was amazing and the tour guide was excellent. He was knowledgeable, personable and offered plenty of unique facts and information. I highly recommend this tour if it fits your schedule.
I took the trip at end of November and it was excellent. Villa d'Este is very impressive, the fountains are very nice, there is much to see. The trip starts with the tour of 1st floor of the palace, followed by the visit to the gardens where there is multitude of fountains. It is very picturesque tour of the Villa. The 2nd visit at Villa Adriana is also very impressive. Our tour was moving at very slow pace, so some of us went and saw the whole Villa - the main tour just stopped at main attractions. Really very memorable event, very good tour guide.
