Description

This is the perfect custom tour that will take you away from the bustling city of Rome and offer an enriching cultural experience in Tivoli. Located just 50 minutes from Rome, this charming town is home to two UNESCO World Heritage sites, Villa Adriana (Hadrian’s Villa) and Villa d’Este. These magnificent structures are not just examples of opulence, but also masterpieces of design and wonder. Your knowledgeable private tour guide will take you on a journey through history and share the story of how Hadrian’s Villa, once referred to as the “Ancient Versailles,” was left to nature after the fall of the Roman Empire and how its various marbles were repurposed to build other structures. You will walk where thermal baths and dining halls once stood, now transformed into lush greenhouses, and feel the romance that the Emperor sought as he marked the land with beauty for eternity.

You will then visit Villa d’Este, a true masterpiece of Renaissance landscape design. Cardinal Ippolito d’Este commissioned architects to design a garden that would impress, and they did just that, channeling a creek between thousands of fountains before it cascaded into a valley. The intricate water patterns and marble tiles create a magnificent waterfall, sometimes producing rainbow effects and even playing music on a water organ at set times. This is a unique opportunity to learn about the lavish lifestyle of wealthy noble families during the Renaissance.
