You will be picked up either at the port of call, Civitavecchia or at your hotel, from where you'll be driven to the ancient town of Tivoli which is about 30 mins from Rome.


At the foot of the Tiburtini hills, dominate the vast quarries of travertine marble and are host to the springs, bringing the sulfurous waters to the spa town of Bagni di Tivoli.
 

our first stop is to visit Villa Adriana (Hadrian's Villa) which is an exceptional complex of classical buildings created in the 2nd century A.D. by the Roman emperor Hadrian.  The ruins can only hint at the grandeur and beauty of this villa which the emperor Hadrian had built as a souvenir of the monuments and sites he had admired during his travels in the East.  It combines the best elements of the architectural heritage of Egypt, Greece and Rome in the form of an 'ideal city'.    The Villa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and important cultural and archaeological site. 

We then continue to the Villa D'Este, one of the most beautiful residences of the Renaissance. The Villa's countless fountains, set in the heart of magnificent Italian style gardens, create a delightfully graceful symphony of carved stone, shade, sunlight and water. Return to, or nearby your Hotel.
