Sites you’ll visit

  • Villa Adriana
  • Tivoli is home to a number of UNESCO sites as Villa D'este and the Ancient Roman area of Villa Adriana. The town is situated on a mountain just outside of Rome and even boasts Thermal water spas!
  • Located just out of Rome, this 16th century villa that is now an UNESCO world heritage site is a beautiful part of Italian history. Perfectly positioned on the mountain top, it others vast views of its world famous Italian Renaissance garden and fountains. The Villa itself is full of breathtaking frescos throughout its corridors and even has the remains of the 2nd century republican villa visible below.
  • Hadrian’s Villa is a great architectonical (now archeological) area in Tivoli, commissioned and partly designed by the Roman Emperor Hadrian almost two thousand years ago. Walking through the imposing ruins of his private Baths, or admiring the Serapeo you will be able to deeply connect with Emperor’s vision: the place where Hadrian choose to rest his body and mind had to be surrounded by Nature and feature dramatic backdrops, such as the amazing Marittime Theatre.
