Tivoli gardens and Adrians villa tour

DRIVING GUIDED TOUR FROM ROME

Just outside Rome, 25 minutes drive north, Tivoli is an amazing place that is truly worth visiting, famous from the early Roman era, it was highly-regarded for its thermal waters and baths and also for its location which expands throughout the entire narrow valley near the Aniene River.

We offer you a private customized visit of the most spectacular monuments and sights of Tivoli  on our comfortable and air conditioned Sedan/Van with a licensed English speaking guide.

 The trip from Rome to Tivoli is only 25 min and our first stop will be Hadrian’s Villa Strolling from the huge arcades of the entrance through to the Throne Room, we will visit the Greater Baths, the Vestibule, the Academy, the Palestra, the Greek Theatre, the Private Library, the Maritime Theatre and the famous Canopy – a valley with a canal surrounded by arcades and statues. Along the way you will learn about Hadrian, an intelligent sovereign and lover of the arts, the youthful Antinous, and their tragic love story; we will learn of the evolution of the multi-ethnic empire that Hadrian inherited from his predecessor Trajan, about the lifestyle of the the emperor and of Roman society at the highest point of its splendour.

Our Tivoli private tour will then jump forward in time nearly 1,500 years as we reach the Villa d’Este, one of the most beautiful palaces and gardens in Italy and probably the world. The story of the villa begins in 1550 with a man named Ercole d’Este. He was born to the duke of Ferrara and the infamous Lucrezia Borgia, and together we will uncover the intriguing and controversial history of this infamous family. The villa is a perfect compliment to Hadrian’s villa, and we will see how its architect Pirro Ligorio attempted to emulate the ancient complex in his design.

Villa D’Este, with its Italian gardens is an incomparable example of the magnificence of the Italian Renaissance.
