I chose this trip as we live near Hadrians wall in the North East of England and i wanted to see Emperor Hadrians villa. The first part of the trip gave us the opportunity to see how he lived, the second part was in Villa DEste. The gardens here are so beautiful and the views both inside and out are breath taking. If you like your history and want to do a trip outside the city of Rome, then this is for you.
Just delightful! Our guide was funny and informative. We loved the sights, the town where we had our lunch break and the fountains. A wonderful day!
Amazing! Worth it to get out of the city, guide was very knowledgeable. The gardens were phenomenal

We truly enjoyed this day trip from Rome. The guide was knowledgeable and the coach was very nice, clean and comfortable! It was hot touring Hadrian's Villa minimal shade and a long walking tour so wear appropriate clothing and bring water as none is available during the tour of the villas. It was well worth the money spent!
The tour was very informative and we were given freedom to stay with the tour the entire time, or meet back with the guide at a certain time and place. The times at each place felt short - I could have easily stayed longer! Made me much happier that I didn't do the half day tour, because it definitely wouldn't have been enough.
A fantastic tour. History at one villa and magnificent fountain gardens at the other. Take care at lunch, as we felt stung by the prices somewhat. Perhaps go for a cheaper option you find for yourself.
Loved the gardens as I had seen them on the TV and it is so worth seeing for real. Good timings for the day and the meeting point is near the Colosseum which is easy to get to I walked from my hotel.
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.
