Full description
Visit the picturesque hilltop town of Tivoli on this day trip from Rome and discover a land of steep cliffs, rich history, and waterfalls. After getting picked up from your hotel in Rome, begin your journey to Tivoli, where you will experience the magic of 2 of Italy's finest UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

First, head to Hadrian's Villa, where you can admire the luxurious private estate built by Emperor Hadrian during his 21-year reign. Accompanied by an expert guide, explore the complex's palaces, private theatres, artificial pools and lakes in depth. As you walk through the ruins, gain a unique insight into the life, career, and imagination of the emperor, who in the final years of his life ruled the entire Roman Empire from his sumptuous retreat.

Afterward, visit another of Tivoli's famous villas, the beautiful Villa d’Este. Enjoy a stroll through the villa's splendid gardens studded with a dizzying array of wonderful fountains. Cardinal d’Este’s dream was to surpass the legendary luxury of Hadrian’s Villa, even going so far as to take archaeological remains from the ruins to enrich the splendour of his own home. At the end of your tour, get dropped off back at your hotel in Rome.
