Unique splendour of Hadrian’s Villa set in gorgeous countryside just out of Rome. Then off to Villa d’Este, beautiful heritage site where we delighted in strolling through the gorgeous gardens and fountains.The views from Tivoli are delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit with our excellent and sympathetic guide Fabio!

A must have see in your life, so lovely, so nice italian country site, the villa from emperor Hadrian (117-138) who constructed the most important buidings in Rome and arround in the Roman Empire. To stroll in the half ruins of this Villa is very romantic, and I wish to visit it again and again.

Dear Manuela, thank you so much for this review, we find Tivoli a real gem too, with its villas (Villa d'Este and Villa Adriana) dating back to the Roman time - a true highlight. If in Rome for more than a couple of days we definitely recommend taking this tour as well, and we're happy to enjoyed it so much. Thanks for taking the time to leave your opinion, it helps us and the community that supports us. Best regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team

It was a very interesting experience visiting Villa Adriana with all the history and sights, but d'Este Villa was enchanting. All the fountains and the gardens were incredible. Our giude Fabio give us all the information and was really a great tour.

I took a wonderful half day tour of Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este today. Our guide Claudia was great...exceptionally knowledgeable and fluent in both English and French. Since I speak both, I got the commentary in “stereo”. The small motor coach is comfortable for the 30 minutes each way drive...two seats on one side and single seat on the other. We had ample time to tour both villas, and even grab an ice cream before the ride back to Rome. The pick up is conveniently located in front of the Diocletian Baths fronting on Piazza de Republica, and an easy walk from the main train station.

Pickup at the hotel was confirmed for “7:30-7:45,” for which I needed the assistance of my hotel desk clerk because the phone number on my printed ticket was missing a zero. I was still standing outside my hotel at 8:15, and was just going to call when the driver came around the corner on foot. I had reserved and prepaid for 2, but the girlfriend had decided to skip this one (I had tried to get a refund, but the tour operator - the same one who confirmed my hotel pickup - told me I would need to go to Viator) The driver asked if there was a second member of my party, and I said, “No, she is not coming. It is just me.” so he put me in the van and then waited another 10 minutes before asking me again if my wife was coming soon. I said, again, “No, it is only me,” and we drove on...to pick up another couple of ladies who must have been wondering where the driver had been. This was in a small van, and I thought, “Small tour! Cool!”
We were driven to the Piazza Republica, near the Termini station, where regular large tour busses were waiting. Regular busses, with two seats on each side of a center aisle.
The bus was about half full. There were two guides - Claudia, who gave the tour in French and Italian, and Marco, who covered Spanish and English.
The information was okay, but listening to everything being repeated was tedious. The listening devices were horrible - Marco’s voice cut out whenever he turned his back, or whenever somebody passed between his transmitter and my receiver, or whenever he went around a corner. When I mentioned this to Marco, he said that it was probably a problem with his transmitter and he would change it. At the Villa d’Este I had had quite enough, and decided to just skip the audio portion.
Both of these sites are fascinating, and well worth a day trip from Rome. The ruins of Hadrian’s villa are romantic and epic, albeit ruins, and the site is enchanting. The Villa d’Este itself is meh (we were there on a Saturday, and so were a couple dozen shrieking children) but the Tivoli Gardens are pure magic.
The tour left us back at Termini station, and I had a nice walk back to my hotel.
This tour was a convenient ride to both sites, but if the gf had come she would have murdered me - better to hire a car and driver for the day, if either of you loses patience waiting for twenty other people to use the toilet.
