Three major villas are located here: the ancient Hadrian’s villa, the Renaissance Villa d’Este with spectacular fountains and the less known Villa Gregoriana.
Tivoli is just 25 km away from Rome, where the Aniene River forms spectacular waterfalls. This cozy town enjoys a cooler climate and has been a resort area for Rome’s elite since the ancient times. In fact one of its main attraction is Villa Adriana, the huge palace of the emperor Hadrian. You walk through brick ruins, fragments of marble floors and columns, but thanks to an expert guidance the daily life of the highest class in the Imperial Age will be in front of your eyes. The archeological park is fascinating beyond expectations, surrounded by olive trees as far as the eyes can see.
