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

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.


  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.

Tivoli Day Tour
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.

Wonderful Tivoli Gardens Tour
Giuseppe was an incredible guide on our Tivoli trip. He was very knowledgeable about everything you need to know about the history and culture of Hadrien. The two places he took us to were absolutely stunning. We couldn't stop taking photos. The tour was perfectly timed so we would hear this stunning music from the renaissance period in the Ville Deste. It was mindblowing. This was actually the best part of the trip. He also recommended a local restaurant to us and it was the best meal of the trip as well. Eat the ravioli the tomato sauce was incredible. Everything ran smoothly and was hassle free. He even told us where to get the best olive oil (I wouldn't stop asking about it haha) and everyone on our tour ended up buying it as well. Giuseppe was knowledgeable, knew the best spots to take us, and created the ultimate off the beaten path experience. Highly recommend to everyone. The town's beauty will take your breath away. Drink the water in Villa Deste (ask Giuseppe about it) it's the freshest water you'll ever have in your life.

It was a wonderful experience and my husband and I truly enjoyed it. Our tour guide Giuseppe was very helpful, charming, knowledgeable and friendly. I have no regrets booking this tour and it really made my first time in Tivoli a memorable and beautiful one!

A Beautiful Tour! First stop: Villa Adrian - Emperor Hadrians residence. An incredibly well-kept place, with so much history. After that lunch and then Villa D'Este - which is just mind-blowingly beautiful. Claudia (our guide) was really good. Very knowledgeble, and with a slightly different approach to being a guide. She was hell-bend on teaching us a little italian, which was a nice change, and she had a technique to keep our focus, and make sure we pain attention, which was also quite nice. I learned alot on this tour. Only thing I wish were different, was the time we had on our own in Villa D'Este. The place is huge, and you need a good amount of time to cover it all, while still being able to really enjoy it and absorb all of the impressions, which is also why, I can’t give 5 stars.

Our guide Giuseppe was amazing he was so knowledgeable and passionate about the area and history. Hadrian's villa was such a highlight and with Giuseppe's narrative of how things looked he brought it all to life. A stop in Tivoli for lunch and the on to Villa d'Este with its world Heritage gardens, so impressive with incredible gravity powered waterfalls and water pipe organ. Absolutely magnificent. This tour was an absolute highlight of our trip.

Wunderbare TOUR
Unsere sehr erfahrene und kluge Führerin hat uns eine spannende Führung durch beide Villen geschenkt und Parallelen der Bauweise aufgezeigt, das alles mit gutem Timing

Tivoli Gardens Tour
Fantastic day especially made so by our tour guide Giuseppe. His personality we loved so much thank you, Giuseppe for making this a very memorable day. The fountains

Tutto perfetto. Bus in orario, guida preparata e simpatica (un signore di Tivoli di cui ora purtroppo non ricordo più il nome) e i luoghi davvero indimenticabili. Villa Adriana è un paradiso per chi ama l'archeologia e la storia antica. Villa d'Este è un luogo unico al mondo dove l'arte rinascimentale modella il paesaggio trasformando un giardino in un sogno a occhi aperti.

Giuseppe is fantastic!
Patty and I went to Hadrian's Villa, Villa d'Este and Tivoli with Tivoli. The ruins and gardens are incredibly fantastic. The water organ worked for us, and Giuseppe's dining and shopping recommendations were spot on. Giuseppe knows his stuff, and he is a lot of fun. Well worth the price of admission.

Perfect tour, perfect guide (Giuseppe)!

Excellent tour with Giusseppe, the best tour guide ever! It was an excellent tour guided by Giuseppe, he not only made it funny and enjoyable, but added plenty of historical, artistic and architectural details. Both places are breathtaking and a must see for people who dont like to make the average Joe tour. Additionally, the lunch time at Tivoli was very nice, regrettably there is short time to sightsee this beautiful place. I must say that I don't like guided tours, but this was really amazing, in content and with the best tour guide ever, Giuseppe!

Excelente viaje a Tivoli y las Villas. Recomendamos el viaje con la compañía, muy puntuales y de verdad, todo muy hermoso.

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!

En förträfflig utflykt! Hadrianus Villa var verkligen intressant och Villa d’Este var mycket vackert med alla sina fontäner. Kan rekommenderas å det varmaste. Vår guide Alfredo var verkligen kunnig och kändes familjär fast vi var en ganska stor grupp visade han alla uppmärksamhet.

Very well organized , beautiful sites to repeat!
24/06/2019 02:28
Wycieczka cudowna :) Dobrze zaplanowany czas, przewodnik wiedzia? co robi, prowadzi? grup? po najpi?kniejszych zakamarkach, stopniuj?c napi?cie. Czas wolny w najciekawszych miejscach. Polecam, dla ka?dego kto chce zobaczy? zapieraj?ce dech w piersiach zabytki i fontabny, ale nieco dalej od zgie?ku rzymskich turystów

Incredible excursion! Very well organized trip to Tivoli, with an excellent guide all the way to the Adriana villa and Villa d'Este. A good recommandation from the guide for a quick meal at lunch. A confortable bus departing from Cavour station and coming back at the same spot. We loved it
