What you will visit:

– Free time in Tivoli
– Villa Adriana
Your tour will begin with the magnificent Villa d’Este, built in the heart of the Renaissance, around 1550, for the will of the Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este, Tivoli’s governor.
Walk around the Villa with your guide, taking in the gardens and posing for photos in front of Bernini-designed fountains while learning about the Cardinal and his lavish life in the villa. Villa d’Este’s fame, however, is due more to its gardens than to the building itself.
This most famous Italian-style garden, which has been imitated, reverberates with the sound of so many fountains that inspired the Romantic composer Franz Liszt to write a piano suite called “Fountains of the Villa d’Este”.
In the afternoon you’ll see Hadrian’s Villa (Villa Adriana), the former holiday home of Emperor Hadrian. It was built in the 2nd century AD. More similar to a small village than a home in today’s sense of the word! Hadrian’s Villa was a complex of over 30 buildings, covering an area of at least 1 square kilometre (c. 250 acres) of which much is still unexcavated. The villa was the greatest Roman example of an Alexandrian garden, recreating a sacred landscape. The complex included palaces, several baths, theatre, temples, libraries, staterooms, and quarters for courtiers, praetorians, and slaves.
