VILLAS OF TIVOLI TOUR – ROME GUIDES

The Villas of Tivoli Tour will take us close to the Tiburtini Hills, in an area rich in sulphurous springs, tuff and travertine quarries. There, the extraordinary ruins of Villa Adriana stand out today. The remains of the villa narrate in detail the grandeur of the private residence built by the Emperor Hadrian to commemorate the monuments and the places he visited during his travels through the Roman Empire.

These unique ruins have fascinated and inspired intellectuals from all over the world: we will visit the Pecile, the Seven Philosophers’ Hall, the Small and Great Baths and the mysterious Maritime Theatre.

Abandoning the memories of Imperial Rome, we will explore the harmonic architecture of Villa d’Este, one of the most beautiful residences of 16th Century. The gems of the Villa’s gardens are the famous fountains, with hundreds of water games operated by the natural pressure of the river Aniene. The Organ Fountain will leave you literally ecstatic with its music, and the gardens will refresh you during the summer heat.

A visit to Villa Adriana can be perfectly connected to the Tour of Ancient Ostia, to understand the archaeological differences between the different historical phases of the Ancient Rome.
