Project Description

TIVOLI

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.

  • Villa d Este Tivoli
  • Teatro d acqua Villa d Este Tivoli
  • Pecile Villa Adriana Tivoli
  • Cascata Villa Gregoriana Tivoli
  • Canopo Villa Adriana Tivoli

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.

curious wanderers

On top of the hill lies the medieval centre of Tivoli where the UNESCO World Heritage Villa D’Este is ready to impress with its Renaissance gardens and fountains. It is especially a relief when the hot summer days are hard to bear… everywhere else, but not here!

and active travellers

Tivoli also boasts the interesting Villa Gregoriana, commissioned by the Pope in 1835 in an effort to rebuild the Aniene River bed after a devastating flood. The result is a charming park abounding with greenery, manicured gardens, caves and waterfalls. This is a good option if you like a short hiking experience in the unexpectedly wild nature that marvelled the artists of the Grand Tour in the past mixing archeology, nature and literature.
