I highly recommend this tour for a first class experience away from the crowds!
Have you ever wanted to see the sort of lifestyle the Roman Emperors enjoyed in private? Come and walk the imposing and majestic ruins of Villa Adriana, Roman Emperor Hadrian's private villa, and conclude your tour amid the fountains of the Villa d'Este, a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture.
There is a small, hilltop town located just outside of Rome named Tivoli, that is home to more than its fair share of wonders. It hosts both the Villa Adriana (a truly palatial estate more popularly known as Hadrian's Villa) and the Villa d'Este, a stunning example of Renaissance art and architecture that attempted to build on and improve what the Romans had left behind, with stunning results.
Absorb nearly two thousand years of history in one afternoon as you begin thousands of years in the past, in the glory days of Ancient Rome. When Hadrian ruled, the Roman Empire stretched from Brittania in the Northwest, to Africa in the South, and Greece in the East. Hadrian's personal villa is a reflection of the Empire at the time, and is equally impressive in scope.
The Villa d'Este is no less a wonder than Hadrian's Villa. Surrounded on three sides by a 16th century courtyard and build on the site of a former Benedictine cloister, the Villa d'Este is one of the most striking examples of Renaissance architecture, including the famous Italian Renaissance garden.
