First stop on this private tour from Rome to Tivoli is Hadrian’s villa, a place where natural beauty, architectural creativity, art and history come together with a magic that has no equal in all of Europe. Boasting an intriguing mix of Greek and Egyptian monuments, the villa represents the aesthetic sensibility of Hadrian and the artists of the period, subsequently influencing many artists from the Renaissance onwards.
Strolling from the huge arcades of the entrance through to the Throne Room, you will visit the Greater Baths, the Vestibule, the Academy, the Palestra, the Greek Theatre, the Private Library, the Maritime Theatre and the famous Canopy - a valley with a canal surrounded by arcades and statues. With your expert guide, you will learn about the intelligent Hadrian, youthful Antinous, and their tragic love story.
Your experience will fast-forward in time nearly 1,500 years as you reach the Villa d’Este, one of the most beautiful palaces and gardens in Italy. Uncover the intriguing and controversial history of this infamous family with your guide. After a refreshing walk through the gardens and fountains of the villa you will be driven back to your hotel, where you can relax and think about the wonderful treasures that you have just seen and on this special Rome private tour.
