Step back in time as you wander through history with this private day tour of Villa Adriana and Villa d’Este and let your imagination bloom as you take in decorated fountains and ancient gardens.
This private day tour takes you just outside of Rome to the beautiful town of Tivoli, where you can relish in history as you are treated to in-depth guided tours of ancient villas that will bring Roman history to life right before your eyes!
This unique and special tour is a delightful treat for anyone interested in Italian architecture as it allows you to discover the diversity of two very splendid villas from different ages at the foot of the Tiburtini Hills. The first stop will be at Hadrian’s Villa (Villa Adriana), which dates back to Roman times and gives you a glimpse into the decadent past of Rome’s elite. The villa oozes grandeur and beauty, and was built by Emperor Hadrian to remind him of the monuments and sites he had admired during his travels in the East. The tour then continues to Villa d’Este, which is one of the most beautiful residences of the Renaissance period. It is set in the heart of magnificent Italian-style gardens and features countless fountains that create a delightfully graceful symphony of water droplets that will lull you into complete relaxation as your private guide explains the significance of the carved stone figurines and decorative sculptures.
Included in this tour:
- All transportation during the day tour (pick up is from the port and you will be returned to the port after the day tour)

Please note that the order of the itinerary may be changed to allow you to make the most of your time in Tivoli.
