Enchanting Day Trip from Rome: Tivoli - Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este

SHARE
This enchanting day trip from Rome takes you to Tivoli where you will explore two unique locations: Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este.

Our expert guide takes you through these undiscovered wonders, delving into the fascinating past of Emperor Hadrian’s Villa and the majestic Renaissance- built Villa d’Este with its enchanting gardens rich with a magnificent system of fountains. Both destinations truly deserve their UNESCO world heritage site status.

This bus and walking sightseeing tour is the perfect off-the-beaten path excursion outside of the bustling city – and the best way to see one of the most beautiful places to visit in Rome.

itinerary

  1. This enchanting day trip from Rome begins with a 40-minute bus ride to Hadrian’s Villa. The vastness of Hadrian’s estate is a sight that will surely impress. The Emperor chose to build his residence outside the city in a place rich in water, in order to build the famous Canopus, one of the most preserved sites left in the complex. The statues surrounding this pool of water create stunning reflections on its surface, beautifully surrounded by luscious green gardens.
  2. A short bus ride brings you to Tivoli town center – where you will have time to explore and enjoy lunch before the next walking tour.
  3. We will leave the alluring ruins of the 2nd century A.D. far behind as we travel on to the 14th century to our second destination, Villa d’Este - one of the most beautiful Renaissance villas in Italy. This splendid palace, with its extraordinary gardens filled with hundreds of fountains, will leave you feeling captivated. Bernini’s monumental Neptune’s Fountain is considered the most impressive, its water jets reaching a height of 10 meters. Not to say that the Central Fountain and the Oval Fountain won’t leave you equally in awe.
  4. On the bus ride back to the city, you will have some time to glance at all of your photos, as you reflect on one of the most beautiful and memorable day trips from Rome.

A Fantastic Day Trip
We have enjoyed a wonderful day in beautiful Tivoli with the sun shining and a very well led tour to Adriana Villa and Villa d’Este. Giuseppe kept us well informed and entertained throughout and his passion for his home territory was evident. I would totally recommend this tour and will hopefully return to enjoy again.

All technical equipment worked well. Bus was comfortable. Guide Joseph was very informative and helpful. Loved Hadrian’s Villa and really loved Villa d’ Este. The fountains were incredible! Joseph explained the history of what we were seeing and helped us to enjoy the town of Tivoli too. Well worth the day trip, and barely 45 minutes there and back. No negatives, but here are some notes for your planning: You will leave wanting more time to explore on your own in both locations. I felt maybe a bit too much time in the city. The restaurant Joseph recommends is expensive for lunch (but good food!). Many less expensive spots in a three block radius. Lots of walking stairs and hills. I loved it, but not everyone does.

La villa d’Este, site magnifique à ne pas louper !! Très bonne organisation et très bon timing, 1h allouée à la pause déjeuner et retour au point de rdv vers 16h. Nous avons eu la chance de bénéficier d’un temps exceptionnel ce qui a rendu cette visite magique...

We thoroughly enjoyed our day out to Tivoli with Giuseppe during our latest Roman holiday. The visits to Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este were very interesting and well balanced. The lunch break in Tivoli gave us the right amount of time to refresh and take a wander through the old town before meeting to visit Villa d’Este. We found Giuseppe to have a very personable delivery and manner with the right blend of information and good humour, with regular checks that our group was following what he was explaining. We recommend the tour.

We did the full day visit to Hadrians Villa and Villa D’Este with our guide Giuseppe. He was very knowledgeable and good humoured. He would always ask if we were understanding what he was telling us and would revisit information he had told us earlier to ensure we had a good understanding. The balance of the tour worked well and we had plenty of time for individual exploration. We did not buy the included lunch but did pay individually for what we chose for lunch. The restaurant coped beautifully with all the individual orders and we had a relaxing lunch but also time to have a look around Tivoli.

Giuseppe aus Tiburtina und von "Enjoy Rome" war ein toller Guide. Wir haben alles sehr gut verstanden, die Organisation war bestens und auch das empfohlene Lokal war absolut einen Besuch Wert. Dazu hatten wir enormes Glück mit dem Wetter, sowie dem Verkehr und den moderaten Besucherzahlen. Ein wirklich schöner Tag - bene et bravo!

Die Reiseziele waren sehr gut ausgesucht und die Führung gut informiert, leider hatten wir vor Ort deutlich zu wenig Zeit, um den Schauplätzen auch nur annähernd gerecht zu werden.

It was so nice to escape the crowds of busy Rome and enjoy the coolness of the hills at Tivoli. Giuseppe our guide took us on a tour of his home town and he had such an extensive knowledge and his lovely personality added to the day. Villa D’este is truely one of Italy’s great gardens and was a memorable experience

Excellent tour. Would not have found Hadrian’s Villa as interesting without Guiseppe’s commentary on relevant history. Villa d’Este was like a premonition of heaven. Restaurant was very good too.

We had a lovely day on this tour. Was actually better than I was expecting. Only negative is that it felt very rushed the whole time. You need a little longer in both places for a bit of exploring. Otherwise it would have been 5 star

Sia il sito di Villa Adriana sia Villa d’Este ci hanno trasmesso forti emozioni: luoghi bellissimi. L’organizzazione del tour è stata perfetta. Abbiamo ammirato la professionalità e la simpatia della guida Giuseppe che ringraziamo in modo particolare. Eravamo le uniche sue italiane e la lingua della guida era in inglese ma, grazie a Giuseppe non abbiamo avuto nessuna difficoltà. Consigliamo quindi anche agli italiani il vostro tour organizzato.

The day in the Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este was perfect! Very beautiful places and the guide was super! Peaceful, friendly and everything was under control. I liked the most when guide speaks slowly and not too much because I like to see places, not to stand and just listen. The best guide and wonderful Villa d’Este! The Tour was on 14.7. Best Wishes and good luck to our guide!
