Almost two thousands years back Rome had been already a busy city and if you wanted to have a rest you went to Tivoli. Emperor Adrian’s villa is a large site with ruins of spa, ponds, temples, orchards and the biggest surprise to us was...More
Good path along the Ancient Roman ruins. This place of Hadrian's Villa served as a retreat from Rome for Roman Emperor Hadrian during the second and third decades of the 2nd century AD. It was like a small town with thermae where Emperor could rest...More
I loved the extensive ruins of Villa Adriana. My favorite part was the canopus. Very reasonably priced (at the time of our visit, our young kids were free, adults were EU 10 and parking was EU 3). Our kids liked having places to roam and...More
The UNESCO brand attracts thousands of tourists to Tivoli to see Villa D'Este and Hadrian's Villa. Getting to Tivoli is easy by train from Tiburtina or Termini station. But Hadrian's Villa is a little bit far from the station. About 5 kilometers. It is necessary...More

I visited by public transport in November 2017. I took the subway to Ponte Mammolo and from there I bought a Cotral bus ticket from a tabac. The bus departed outside the station and other passengers told me when to get off. Essentially you need to step off near the Piazza Garibaldi in the centre of Tivoli. From there the Villa D'Este is 5 minutes walk and the staff on their ticket desk gave me some very helpful information on how to get to the Villa Adriana. The Piazza Garibaldi vicinity is the best place to have lunch. You can then cross the road and buy two bus tickets per person from the tabac on the opposite side of the road and then take a bus from the Piazza Garibaldi to the Villa Adriana. I managed to take the correct bus by asking others for assistance. In order to do both Villas from Rome via public transport an early start is required. There may be a better way of doing it but the aforementioned worked for me 6 months ago.

From Tivoli station, you can take CAT bus line or no. 4, which will take you to about 300 meters from the villa. There is one that comes every 20-40 mins or so. You may check the webiste of catbustivoli or call 0774-334229... More
From Tivoli station, you can take CAT bus line or no. 4, which will take you to about 300 meters from the villa. There is one that comes every 20-40 mins or so. You may check the webiste of catbustivoli or call 0774-334229 for more details. Hadrian's Villa, by the way, is only about 5 kms away from Tivoli proper. You can just walk, if you want, and it would take you about an hour. However, take into account the typical summer heat in Rome. You can also take a taxi or a uber (7 min. ride).
