Full description
Start your day with a pick-up from your centrally located Rome accommodations. The driver will await you in the lobby before beginning the 45-minute journey to Tivoli. Upon your arrival, purchase your tickets and audio guide and enter the Villa d'Este, built in the heart of the Renaissance. Walk around the villa independently and observe the magnificent gardens and construction. Pose for photos in front of the Bernini-designed fountains as your audio guide tells you of the Cardinal and details his lavish life in the villa. 

This famous Italian-style garden reverberates with the sound of many fountains that inspired Franz Liszt to write a piano melody titled, "Fountains of the Villa d'Este". After your tour of Villa D'Este, return to your car and travel to a beautiful restaurant with a wonderful view of Tivoli. Next, take a leisurely stroll in the small ancient town of Tivoli. The city offers a wide view of the Roman countryside and stunning landscape. 

During the tour you’ll be allowed time for lunch (not included) in a very tipical restaurant and of course to visit the main sites of the town. At the end of the tour the driver will take you back to your accommodation in Rome. The tour will be a total of 6 hours from pick-up to drop-off. Audio guides (in English, French, German and Spanish) are available for both the villa and garden. They may be rented at the entrance for 4 Euro per person.
