Tivoli Gardens & Adrians Villa
A fascinating little town located at around 25 min from Rome. Famous from the early Roman era, it was highly-regarded for its thermal waters and baths and also for its location which expands throughout the entire narrow valley near the Aniene River, also known as the Teverone.
Here Emperor Hadrian in 117 AC built a residence which is now considered to be the epitome in architecture of the Roman world, Hadrian’s Villa.
The complex was more an imperial garden city than a traditional villa. Everything was designed to follow the natural lay of the land. Tivoli is also known for its other famous attraction… Villa d’Este. This villa was designed for the governor Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este. Before being confiscated as his residence, the property had been a Benedictine convent.
The villa is decorated with 500 fountains and gardens of rare beauty!!
A hop, skip, and jump from Rome!
