Started by architect and historian, Pirro Liggori in 1549, for Cardinal Ippolito dEste, this famous villa estate is one of the finest examples of Renaissance residence and garden architecture and design.

The Villa once housed the local Cardinal and he must have lived like a prince. Although unfurnished now, the frescoes on the ceilings of the rooms are incredible.
The grounds have numerous fountains, all of which are worthy of mention, but if you have a...More
We took the one hour train ride from Rome to Tivoli. From the train station at Tivoli it is a ten minute brisk walk to the Villa d'Este. Both the villa itself and the gardens are wonderful and tell so much history of the grandees...More

To get around that, I'm thinking one of the days (when the weather's just right), we could rent a car and drive to Tivoli. But is that a good idea? I've never driven in Rome (and I've...More

It's a very bad idea to rent a car in Rome. I think that Monday, the Villa is closed. You might consider taking the train.

Ciao, Taking elderly Mama to Rome and we want to visit Tivoli for a day...anyone know what a taxi might run to get to the Villa d'Este from Rome? Private guide and car with driver way too expensive and Train and bus not her thing...group bus tour too restrictive... I hear it's lovely and about an hour or less from Rome...this will be in early October... Thanks for any and all help!
