Discover the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este on a 5-hour tour that departs from Rome. You'll have the chance to explore these ancient villas of Tivoli together with an expert guide who will help you learn all the main facts and anecdotes about all the amazing sites you'll see.
Your experience will start by being picked up from your accommodation within the Aurelian Walls. Relax in the comfort of a 9-passenger minivan with driver, as you and your group head towards the ancient villas of Tivoli.
Once you've arrived, you'll visit both the Unesco World Heritage Sites with a professional guide. You'll admire the exquisite Hadrian's Villa, built by Emperor Hadrian during the 2nd century and home to emperors for more than 50 years. You'll walk between the stunning Greek architecture and picturesque landscape and you'll stroll through the gardens inspired by the wonders of Rome, Egypt, and Athens. You'll then head to Villa d'Este, built during the 16th century by Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este. Here you'll explore its gardens, fountains, and waterfalls, and you'll step back into history as your guide provides you with an insight on the notable Roman families that built this villa and called it home. At the end of the visit, you'll be taken back to your accommodations in Rome.
