Tivoli, Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este – A Charming Day Trip from Rome

SHARE
One of the best day trips from Rome, the enchanting town of Tivoli is just a quick bus ride away.

Our knowledgeable guide introduces you to the hidden gems and alluring history of Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este.

Tour the archaeological remains of past temples, sculptures and pools. Once the vacation spot of Emperor Hadrian and now the home to many beautifully preserved artifacts and ruins. It’s no wonder that this destination was named a UNESCO world heritage site status.

After a quiet and leisurely break for lunch it is time for the second stop on this Tivoli tour – the elegant, Renaissance palace of Villa d’Este. Another UNESCO world heritage site.

Admire the stunning grounds filled with extravagant gardens and fountains. See Bernini’s illustrious Neptune’s fountain up close and personal and learn about the history behind this and each of these elaborate and unique springs.

Tivoli, Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este is the most charming day trip from Rome.

itinerary

  1. This enchanting day trip from Rome begins with a 40-minute bus ride to Hadrian’s Villa. The vastness of Hadrian’s estate is a sight that will surely impress. The Emperor chose to build his residence outside the city in a place rich in water, in order to build the famous Canopus, one of the most preserved sites left in the complex. The statues surrounding this pool of water create stunning reflections on its surface, beautifully surrounded by luscious green gardens.
  2. A short bus ride brings you to Tivoli town center – where you will have time to explore and enjoy lunch before the next walking tour.
  3. We will leave the alluring ruins of the 2nd century A.D. far behind as we travel on to the 14th century to our second destination, Villa d’Este - one of the most beautiful Renaissance villas in Italy. This splendid palace, with its extraordinary gardens filled with hundreds of fountains, will leave you feeling captivated. Bernini’s monumental Neptune’s Fountain is considered the most impressive, its water jets reaching a height of 10 meters. Not to say that the Central Fountain and the Oval Fountain won’t leave you equally in awe.
  4. On the bus ride back to the city, you will have some time to glance at all of your photos, as you reflect on one of the most beautiful and memorable day trips from Rome.

Excellent tour
We took the day tour to Tivoli, Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este, and Giuseppe was an excellent guide and host. The day was perfectly organised and the visits fascinating. Giuseppe gave us the right amount of interesting and useful information and looked after the group very well. The driver was also very good and the coach comfortable. We would definitely recommend Nicom Tours and use them again next time we are in the wonderful city of Rome. Thanks, Giuseppe! Stuart
