What people are saying about Tivoli
As we had limited time in Rome we chose this tour as it only takes half a day due to the fact you leave earlier, the car is faster than a bus and you don't have a long lunch break in Tivoli like the bus tours. The guide and driver in a Mercedes met us at our apartment at 8.30. We drove to both villas for our private tours. Due to the early start we were at the Villas before the tour bus crowds. Both Villas are definitely worth a visit from Rome. We arrived back in Rome at lunch time and were dropped off at the Colosseum with plenty of time to have lunch and visit more sites in Rome. The guide was informative and the driver very polite with a spotless luxury car. The price was a lot cheaper than alternative companies for private tours.
The tour guide was excellent, the first tour was of the ruins of Hadrian's Villa, there is still much remaining to see just how significant the Emperor Hadrian's villa was. The second tour of the Villa D'Este was also excellent, the residence is fully intact with intricate artwork murals, with time to just stroll around the beautiful & pristine gardens, perched high on the hillside above Rome!
The tour guide from Enjoy Rome- Giuseppe was very knowledgeable and very pleasant. Highly recommended.
Despite the deterioration of the buildings one could reconstruct the wonderful archirectural design and stunning engineering achievements time - 118 - 138 AD. Site management should provide better signage for visitors so they don't have to interpret where to go after each site is visited. That is the map should include the walking path with arrows directing visitors from site to site. Currently, it is up to the visiot to work out where the next stop is - wasting a lot of time and creating a certain amount of stress that some might be missed, as happened to us.
We had a lovely day. The group leader was funny. He was informative and knew a lot without overloading us with too much information. There was lots of time to look around and soak in the atmosphere. I left understanding how these 2 buildings and gardens related to each other. The gardens and fountains of Villa D'Este were beautiful. It was one of the best things to do when in Rome. Highly recommended.
