Learn about the history of this fascinating, fair-weather resort town as you go.
Very interesting tour, the ruins of Emperor Hadrian and #39;s Villa Adriana were great. Almost 2000 year old arches and dome that are still standing. Villea DeEste garden and fountains were quite beautiful. Great tour guide too.
excellent tour very informative guide highly recommend this tour
Very interesting and informative. Our guide not sure what her name was was very likable and had much to say about the archeological site. Her english wasnt perfect but very understandable. It was impossibly hard to get a hold of the I love Rome agency to make sure if we will be picked up. Had to call 5 different numbers and do a ton of research to get a hold of them. The pickups are only done within the Aurealian Walls they say, which location is not clearly defined.
Very interesting tour, more time needed.
The two sites visited were great! Much to see and learn. The guides provided info in three languages which they did well. Considering the time spent together five hours, however, more info could have been provided.
Our guide Eduardo was fantastic and very knowledgeable. I only give it 4 stars out of 5 because I felt it was slightly expensive.
quite a large group
the guide was knowledgeable but quite dry
altogether a nice experience
It was a good tour, although I feel that we could have spent less time in Hadrian's villa and more in Villa d'Este because it is gorgeous. For a half day tour, I would recommend just going to Villa d'Este and leave Hadrians Villa to another time. It would have been nice to visit the palace section in Hadrian's villa but we didn't have enough time. Our guide was excellent, unfortunately I can't remember her name.
We enjoyed this trip but the guide was difficult to hear at times and would frequently speak with her back to us. If I had to do it again, I would have chosen a tour with earphones and the tour guide speaking into a mic. Both sites are really worth seeing though. We particularly enjoyed the garden at Villa d'Este.
