 Itinerary description

Leaving Rome enjoy a short drive of 17 miles East through lovely Roman countryside and passing by travertine quarries. Travertine is a limestone widely used in Rome constructions (Colosseum, Justice Palace, St. Peter's Basilica and Square, etc.). Explore the ancient imposing remains of Villa Adriana, where the Emperor Hadrian delighted himself with architecture, reproducing with his fantasy architectural sites which had struck his imagination along the several journeys he made, visiting the world mightiest Empire.Emperor Hadrian (117-138 AD)

Villa Adriana was a sprawling set of buildings in the Roman countryside near Tibur (ancient name of Tivoli). The Emperor Hadrian himself conceived and personally supervised the building works of a countryside dwelling that would by normal standards be considered a town; in fact the extent of this complex was remarkable: about 300 acres, complete with palaces, theaters, artificial lakes, fish ponds,  temples, bath structures, dining open-air halls, libraries, guests housing, housing for praetorian guards, firemen, slaves who worked in the Villa. All was ornamented by splendid gardens, spectacular fountains and large pools where the elegant architecture of sumptuous buildings could reflect like as in a mirror. Underground tunnels were connecting the several parts of the Villa, to consent moving of slaves and other serving personnel to supply it without disturbing the Emperor and his guests. The Emperor's private hideaway was a round islet surrounded by a  canal and a magnificent porch. Eight rooms and a bathing room were set out on the islet. A draw-bridge was isolating the Emperor from the entire world.

The visit of Villa Adriana is worthy a half-day to itself, particularly for those with an interest in antiquities.

This guided tour of approximately 4 hours to Tivoli may be completed with the visit of Villa D'Este gardens and fountains making a full-day agreeable excursion, naturally with a break for lunch. In this case the choice will be between a self-service place or a lovely characteristic restaurant to enjoy a typical Roman delicious lunch.
