Just 25 Km from Rome lays a true hidden gem of Roman and Neo-Baroque architecture. With us you will be able to explore some of the wonders that Tivoli has to offer. On the main road that links Rome to Tivoli you will find Villa Adriana, which is also a Unesco world heritage site and is recognised as one of the best examples of Roman architecture.
The Villa was built between 118 and 138 d.C. by order of the Emperor Adriano who himself was heavily involved in the design of the Veilla. Empreor Adriano had a real passion for fine arts and architecture and this is also why the Villa has many features that were extremely innovative for this particular time period. Adriano innovations were all design to enchant and create a wow factor for anyone that visited the villa.
Our tour will then take you to admire more wonders of the Roman era with a visit to “Villa d’Este”. This Villa is also a Unesco site and was built in 1550 by Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este. This Villa is also renowned for its large park with extraordinary fountains and grottos. With its fountains guest can admire a play of water jets that will enchant the admirer with their visuals and sounds.
The Villa is equipped with lifts and electric transportation that allows visitors with walking difficulties to visit the site in a relaxing atmosphere.
