Details

Your bus will follow the ancient Via Tiburtina for 30 km to the east of Rome, and take you into the bucolic Sabine hills. There, you will discover Tivoli, ancient “Tibur,” which has been a refuge for Rome's powerful and wealthy for centuries. You'll visit the two main attractions of this charming town – the Villa Adriana, and the Villa d'Este. Hadrian's Villa Adriana dates back to Roman Times and the Villa D'Este is from the Renaissance period - both are UNESCO world heritage sites.

Emperor Hadrian commissioned the architectural elements of his Villa in Tivoli to reflect the places he had visited on his campaigns and travels to the East – particularly Greece, which he ardently admired. Immersed in a park of over 100 hectares, Hadrian's Villa unites the best elements of the architectural heritage of Egypt, Greece, and Rome in the form of an 'ideal city'. The complex includes the remains of thermal baths, the Maritime Theater, the complex of the Canopus (formed by a large rectangular pool surrounded by sculptures), and the Museum, which preserves outstanding examples of the decoration of the villa.

Tivoli's Villa d'Este on the other hand is a masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance. The villa is beautifully built and decorated. But the real attraction is the park, one of the most beautiful in the world. Designed by Pirro Ligorio in the 16th century, and incredibly lively and full of decorations, caves, statues, and the exciting avenue of 100 fountains it was one of the first “giardini delle meraviglie” (gardens of wonder).

At the end of your outing, you will be taken back to central Rome.
