Just came back from a day trip to Tivoli from Rome. Visited Villa Adriana and I really cannot understand why. Why would somebody go there at all: 1. It's impossible to get there from Tivoli, especially on Sunday. 2. For the entrance fee (which is...More

Yes it was a hot day, aren't they all in summer? It was a long walk after seeing Ville d Este. I thought it was too much. I would much prefer to revisit some old sights in Rome than venture this far out. I would...More

The Roman remains here are amongst the most in tact I have ever seen. The sheer size of the site is amazing. Visit early to avoid sun ( BLISTERING IN SUMMER) and the crowds. Still being worked on, it will develop over time. A great...More

It’s a big site and takes some commitment to walk around everything and take it all in. If you enjoy antiquity then there’s plenty of interest here, but I’d be careful of taking young children as the site doesn’t “come alive” very easily and needs...More

I visited the Villa Adriana on a very warm afternoon and immediately transcended time back to the Roman Empire. I was taken away by a model of the entire estate reflecting what the buildings looked like and were used for. The ruins are stunning, and...More

We watched the episode of Monte Don’s Gardens that covered this place and I highly recommend doing so before going to see it so that you can more fully appreciate this place. The gardens are beautiful and the ruins speak to what once was a...More

It is impossible to visit Hadrian’s villa without being impressed! It is one of the most extravagant villas ever build on the scale of a small city!! The scale of the ruins is overwhelming. It is a shame that the museum is permanently closed but...More

Our excursion to Tivoli occurred during record-breaking heat, which somewhat detracted from our enjoyment since there is considerable walking involved. That said, aficionados of Roman history will not be disappointed. There are several intact 2nd century ruins, and a large diorama building to provide context....More
