TIVOLI PRIVATE TOUR (car and walking tour)
A wonderful day-trip from Rome to the villas of Tivoli
The Tivoli private tour is one of the most beautiful day-trips to the surroundings of Rome. It is a full-day tour to visit the villa of Emperor Hadrian, a magnificent palace of ancient Rome, the Renaissance Villa D’Este, with its famous gardens and fountains, and Villa Gregoriana with thick woodlands, waterfalls and Ancient remains.
We will start our Tivoli tour with the visit to the fascinating ruins of Emperor Hadrian’s villa, built in the early 2nd century as a retreat from Rome for the Emperor.
It was a complex of over thirty buildings, including palaces, thermae, a theatre, temples, libraries, state rooms and quarters for praetorians and slaves, covering an area of at least one square kilometer. The different shapes and architectures are told to be inspired by the many trips of the emperor in various parts of the Empire.
We will then continue our Tivoli private tour with a visit to the Renaissance Villa d’Este, world famous for the spectacular gardens and fountains.
The cardinal Ippolito II d’Este commissioned this villa the famous architect Pirro Ligorio . The gardens are an artistic and natural marvel built on different levels: among the trees, the statues, the green and the fountains, from each terrace you will enjoy the beautiful view of the surrounding landscape.
We’ll then get some lunch in a typical restaurant on a side of the famous Villa Gregoriana with thick woodlands, waterfalls and Ancient remains; the Tivoli private tour includes a visit to this site too.
The villas we’ll visit with our Tivoli tour are about one hour drive from the center of Rome. Tivoli private tour includes limo service with driver and a private tour guide.
