Hadrian’s Villa Day Trip Description
Join Luxe on a nine-hour private-only tour of two UNESCO listed sites situated just an hour outside of Rome. Your guide and chauffeured vehicle will meet you at your hotel before heading to our first stop – the magnificent Renaissance gardens of Villa d’Este created for the son of the infamous Lucrezia Borgia, Cardinal Ippolito d’Este II in the 16th century.
Villa D’este Gardens
These gardens are famous for their magnificent use of water, in fact, Cardinal d’Este revived ancient Roman hydraulics which created the ‘fantasy garden’ which still stands today.
You will view the most important features of the villa’s garden, from the famous Biccherione of Bernini to the Fountain of the Organ (still today played by the force of the water on the keys), to the Fountains of Neptune and the Oval Fountain. After this, pop into the town of Tivoli for lunch (meal not included) before heading off to tour the magnificent villa of Emperor Hadrian.
Tour Hadrian’s Villa
The UNESCO-listed Hadrian’s Villa was built as the Emperor Hadrian’s retreat from Rome in the 120s-130s AD and is still today remarkably intact. In this private tour, we show you not only the sites, but how the people who occupied the villa actually lived – from the soldiers that guarded the villa, to the slaves that serviced it, and to the nobles who joined Hadrian for his famous summer feasts.
You will see all the most important sites on the villa including the Canopus, the Baths, the Gymnasium, the Barracks, and the Libraries — plus a few surprises. You will then be accompanied back to your hotel by your guide and private chauffeur.
Please note there are steep inclines to walk on this tour so please advise of any walking difficulties prior to your tour.
Meeting point: pick up at your hotel.
This tour doesn’t run on 15th August, 8th December, 1st May, 1st November, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
