A resort town for Rome's rich and famous for over 2,000 years, Tivoli is today a fascinating refuge for anyone interested in history and culture. This guided day trip from Rome transports you to Tivoli on a comfortable air-conditioned bus and deposits you smack in the center of thousands of years of history. 

Take a guided walking tour of Hadrian's Villa, a lavish palace where the Roman emperor officially moved in AD 128. Marvel at the ruins of temples and theaters, swimming pools and steam rooms. With a guide at your side, learn about what daily life at the villa was like nearly 2,000 years ago. 

After touring the ancient estate, indulge in a delicious Roman lunch at a local restaurant and then get acquainted with the opulent Villa d'Este, an erstwhile Benedictine convent that was turned into a Renaissance palace by Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este, son of Lucrezia Borgia. Wander through the palace's verdant, highly manicured gardens and take delight in the famed Fountain of Neptune. 

After touring the villa, hop back on the bus for the return back to Rome.

Break from Rome Hustle

It was a beautiful day despite the showers. The Villas Adriana and d'Este were both respite from the busyness of the city. Our guide Elida was knowledgeable and amiable and took us to a delicious lunch between the places. The water features at Villa d"Este are spectacular, and I think I'll remember them more fondly than the ones at Versailles. It also surprises how the drivers maneuver through lanes with almost no clearance. Hats off to all of them and the incredibly hard-working guides.

Informative Guide -

Our guide was amazing. She was so informative, explained everything so well, and answered any questions with ease. It was a warm day, and she made sure we always stopped in the shade when she talked and pointed out spots to get water. The pace of her tour was perfect as well--not too fast or slow. One of the extras she did was carry a book that showed the ruins today and then you could flip a page and see the area "back in the day." These books are for sale at many souvenir shops and stands, but it was really helpful and informative how she incorporated the pictures with her tour. She also carried and used other visual aides throughout the tour. Our lunch was quite pleasant (although some confusion that dessert was not included in the ticket price by some group members) and there was a perfect amount of free time. We did multiple tours on our trip, and this tour also had the best headsets and the group was not too large. It took all the stress out of the tour because transportation was included. I would not see Hadrian's Villa without a guide--she brought it to life and I think without the tour, it would have just been a pile of rocks.

This is an all day outdoor walking tour with lunch break, so bring sunscreen and hat! Hadrian's Villa is very large with many ancient ruins. Lunch was tasty and a welcome break from the hot sun. Villa d'Este is a large house with many elaborately painted rooms; but the real attraction is the lush green gardens with spectacular fountains! I am elderly and walk with a cane, so the many stairs and ramps of this trip were a bit rough for me.

My wife and I have traveled extensively and gone on numerous guided tours over the years. On June 12 we took part in this Tivoli day trip. Our guide was absolutely terrible. Her walking pace was extremely fast despite being advised to slow down because of seniors struggling with the pace. She refused to wear her headset properly and as a result, many times you could not clearly here her commentary. This was pointed out to her with negative results. I consider myself an advanced historian, but even for me, I found her way too far out there. She knew the history will, but was unable to deliver the message to us all. It was only after a few minutes in which she lost the entire group. Also disappointing was that I understood this to be a small group tour. I was disappointed to find out that there were 29 people in attendance. Many people on the tour thought the same While I have used Viator guided excursions in the last, I found this particular tour fell far short of aviators standards.

Our guide, Joanna, was topnotch with all the information she gave us on the tour. It was well paced and absorbable. All three components, Hadran's Villa, the lunch and Villa d'Esty were beyond our expectation and thoroughly enjoyed. The fountains at Villa d'Estay were dramatically amazing! There was no part of the tour that could have been improved.
