Tour description

Our Tivoli Villas Day Trip is the perfect combination of relaxation, history and art. In our opinion, a visit to the Tivoli Villas of Hadrian’s Villa (Villa Adriana) and Villa D’Este should be right up there with the Colosseum and Vatican on the do-see list of any tourist coming to Rome. Make sure you get the most out of your visit, touring with a friendly, expert private guide. What's more, we will take care of all transportation with a professional, private driver to accompany you throughout your trip. Are you looking for a relaxing and interesting day trip to Rome’s surroundings? Do you want to explore both Ancient and Renaissance history in just one day? Then our private Tivoli Villas Day Trip might just be the highlight of your vacation! 

You will meet our private, licensed guide and private English-speaking driver with luxury car or minivan in the lobby of your Rome hotel and together you will travel to the town of Tivoli just outside Rome. First on your Tivoli Villas day trip will be a visit to Hadrian’s Villa, known as Villa Adriana in Italian. Hadrian’s Villa (Villa Adriana) was built in the 2nd century AD as the summer residence of Emperor Hadrian. A lavish complex, Hadrian’s Villa (Villa Adriana) contains at least 30 buildings, as well as baths, monumental pools and fountains in its landscaped gardens. With your private guide, not only will you explore Hadrian’s Villa itself but you will also learn all about the very peculiar personality of Emperor Hadrian. A crucial site in the governance of Ancient Rome, Hadrian’s Villa actually became Emperor Hadrian’s official residence towards the latter stages of his rule.

From one lavish noble to another, but this time jumping forward in time to Renaissance Italy, your next stop on your Tivoli Villas Day Trip is Villa D'Este, commissioned by the wealthy cardinal Ippolito II D’Este. Another fascinating character, you will be thrilled to have a private guide to explain to you all about this ambitious cardinal. A keen patron of the arts, despite coming from a noble family from Ferrara and receiving a high income, D’Este had the Renaissance equivalent of a shopping addiction and always had money problems! Villa D’Este itself is the perfect place to relax, especially on an Italian summer's day. Villa D’Este is particularly famous for its stunning gardens. In the expansive and luxurious grounds of Villa D’Este you will admire nymphs, grottoes, water plays and hundreds of monumental fountains.

A private day trip to Tivoli Villas is really a must for anyone staying in Rome for a few days.
