Hadrian's Villa (Villa Adriana) and Villa d'Este in Tivoli

Piazza Trento, 5, Tivoli, 00019

The Basics

Most Tivoli tours departing from Rome include visits to both Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa. At the latter, tour archaeological ruins of temples, libraries, and thermal baths, including the Maritime Theater, the grand Piazza d’Oro, the Imperial Palace, and the Canopus. At Villa d’Este—commissioned by Cardinal Ippolito—admire views from the Vialone Terrace and the picture-perfect Oval Fountain. To get the most out of your visit, opt for a full- or half-day guided tour through the Lazio countryside.

Great Tour Guide to beautiful sites
Great day with Joseph the tour guide, who was very friendly, well educated and concerned about our comfort and satisfaction all day long. We booked this tour the night before and everything went smoothly. Central location for pick up, pleasant staff. Good time division between these 2 meaningful sites.

A great day trip from Rome

Tivoli Full Day Trip from Rome: Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este
The day trip was wonderful our guide was fantastic and knew much about the sites and the history. The ruins were fascinating and you really felt like you understood what the site was like in all it’s glory. Our guide tied the ancient site with the renaissance age villa d’este which was magnificent. We wish we had more time there but that wold have meant less time at the ruins which were wonderful. We leaned a lot and without our guide it seeing both woof hit be the same.

Tivoli Day Trip from Rome with Lunch Including Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este
It was a fun and informative day. Our guide, Carolina, was wonderful. The tour included a nice lunch in a Tivoli trattoria. It was hot and there was a lot of walking but overall very worthwhile.

Heritage Site: Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa in Tivoli Tour from Rome
Hadrian’s Villa was so interesting. The gardens at Villa d’Este were spectacular! My husband is a Landscape Architect and had studied these gardens as part of his training. Seeing them was one of his favorite parts of our Italy trip.

Small-Group Tour of Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este from Rome
This tour was one of the absolute highlights of our two weeks in Europe. Our guide and her driver were wonderful, incredibly knowledgeable and just plain fun, nice people. This was a top choice for our history major college freshman and we loved it. I knew little about the history and was overwhelmed with knowledge and appreciation at the end of the day. There were five us ages 50,45, 22, 22, 18. Perfect day - worth every dime.

Tour to Tivoli, Villa Adriana and Villa d'Este, a full day from Rome
Enjoyed traveling and the various info through our the drive. Poor guy didn’t know where we would exit the second stop so he drove back and forth to find us. A phone with the driver may be beneficial. He was there when we walked out😉

Private Tivoli: Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este with Pick-up from Rome
Except for being expensive, our tour guide and driver were exceptional. It would have been more reasonable if it included a light snack since it was 6 hrs altogether.

What to do in Lazio, Italy

Like Rome, Tivoli is set in the Italian region of Lazio. Although the Italian capital is the main draw for most visitors, take some time to visit the rejuvenating thermal waters of the Baths of Bagnaccio or the tumbling Monte Gelato waterfalls. And the weird and wonderful world of the Sacred Wood of Bomarzo (Sacro Bosco di Bomarzo) is an underrated gem.
