Loved this tour. Both places were exceptional and the fountains at Villa d'Este were amazing. Great guide.
We were glad that we had booked a guided tour instead of attempting to organise our own itinerary to Tivoli. We learned so much from our enthusiastic and charming guide, Barbara, and transportation was quick and efficient. Both sites were breathtaking in different ways - spectacular ruins at the astonishing Hadrian's Villa and great beauty in the house and garden at Villa d'Este.
This was my favorite tour in all of or travels in Italy, Spain and France. Our guide was soooo knowledgable. The day was very hot and the tour of all the beautiful fountains was perfect. The grounds and paths that wandered through the fountains made walking easy. I took many pictures of the most unique fountains I have ever seen. We would do this tour again if we return to Itay.
The two villas were great, and the guides were great to explain what we were seeing. This tour delivered on all its promises.
Great trip. Very interesting and informative. Lots of walking and steps. I would not recommend this if it is very hot and humid, or you are not a walker.
Fascinating tour of the ruins of Hadrian's Villa and beautiful gardens and home at Villa D'Este! I loved the numerous fountains there, and it certainly helped with the heat during the Italian summer. Would definitely return and highly suggest this as a day trip to anyone visiting Rome.
This trip was great. Hadrian's Villa was a surprise...we didn't know much about it before taking the tour and it was all very interesting. Tivoli's gardens were beautiful, of course. I recommend this tour.
Great tour both locations were impressive and quite different from each other Hadrians villa being ruins and the Vila d and #39;este being lush and beautiful garden. With gorgeous water features and fountains most welcome on such s hot day
This activity was well organised. It moved at an easy pace , with time to take in the sites alongside the most informative commentary from the guides. The guides were very personable, knowledgable and ready to respond to any questions.
Each site was fascinating in its own way, but both a visual feast rich in remarkable history. Well worth doing!
The trip was excellent Marcetta the guide was brilliant she was friendly and very informative I would definitely recommend this tour and your company.
Barber was a good guide and informative about both Villas. She kept us interested in a very hot day. Villa d and #39;Este was stunning. If any Changes recommended: reduce time at Hadrian and #39;s - add to d and #39;Este. Emphasize lack of facilities at Hadrian and #39;s and recommend people bring water. Died of thirst until lunch.
Es una visita muy recomendada si quieren ver jardines romanos sobre todo en Tivoli tecnología hidraulica. Uno puede apreciar como les gustaba vivir a los emperadores, es realmente una visita que recomendamos se la pasa uno muy bien.
En nuestro caso el tour fue en ingles pues hay pocos en Español, eso es un problema si no hablas bien el idioma que era el caso de mi esposo sin embargo la explicación tampoco es muy abundante en información por lo que la pueden tomar sin problemas.
A Tivoli ingresamos después de comer y nos traian un poco apurados, a mi me hubiera gustado que nos dejaran un poco más de tiempo para ver bien y disfrutar la villa sin embargo se veía que traian el tiempo contado por lo que esa visita es un poco rápida.
Si tienen problemas para caminar sobre todo para subir y bajar no es recomendable, todo son escaleras, pienso sobre todo en la gente mayor realmente las subidas y las prisas no es buena combinación.
Antes de entrar comimos por nuestra cuenta, no nos recomendaron sin embargo mi marido y yo decidimos quedarnos en el restaurante justo de frente a la entrada de Tivoli y dejenme decirles que las pizzas fueron las mejores que nos comimos de todo italia, se las recomiendo.
This was a wonderful tour . The guide was very knowledgeable about architecture and that made it all the more interesting. The weather was a bit of a trial - but villa d'este and Hadrian's palace are a wonderful day spent outside Rome. The bus was A/C and comfortable and the driver accommodating. It was a bit of a hike to get to the bus from our meeting point in Rome - and that should be addressed. Would definitely recommend to others
The tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and one of the best I have had!
This was a stimulating easy-paced trip by coach from Rome to Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este. Our guide understood both his material and how much to tell us. There was a time and place for lunch. The tour company contacted us very late, by email, with information about the departure point. We could easily have missed this.
Was a fabulous day out at Tivoli. Very well organised and so worth visiting Hadrians Villa and Villa D and #39;Este. The waterfalls and gardens at Villa D and #39;Este were absolutely stunning and the guide was full of knowledge with all the history at Hadrians Villa. Really enjoyed the full day trip.
The tour was fantastic. Alfredo was our guide and was excellent. The bus trip to Tivoli was 40mins away from Rome and the town is a lovely welcome break from the city. Lots of choice for food for the hour-long lunch break in the town. Fantastic, well worth the money. Lots of walking though!
Alfredo was an excellent guide and took very attentive care. Highly recommend this tour if you're going to Tivoli
This was a great tour with Vincenzo who was extremely knowledgeable and shared so much with us.
We highly recommend this tour and would love to do it again ourselves next time we visit Rome and will definitely use Viator again for other trips. Grazie Vincenzo - you made it special and unforgettable.
It started as a cloudy and rainy day, but it did not matter, we had a great guide that led us through the ruins with great information! The sun finally came out when we got to Tivoli Gardens, it did not matter though because even clouds could not take the stunning views away from this beautiful property. My daughter said, if I was a fountain or a butterfly, I would want to live here. We are a family of 5 and we all enjoyed our day.
Great day trip out of the city of Rome to the Hadrian's Villa and Villa D'Este. Our guide, Felix, was outstanding- knowledgeable and funny. I will say that this tour requires a lot of walking and significant climbs up and down. We had several in our group who were not able or prepared for the level of activity and held back our group somewhat. Villa D'Este is magical- bring your cameras!
