Your day will start with a convenient pickup service from your ship. Your assigned pickup time will be prior to 9am and relayed to you by the local tour operator the day prior to your tour. Relax in the comfort of a minivan with driver, as you and your group (maximum of 7) head towards the ancient villas of Tivoli.
Once in Tivoli, you will visit both UNESCO World Heritage Sites with a professional guide. Admire the exquisite Hadrian's Villa, built by the Emperor Hadrian during the 2nd century and home to emperors for more than 50 years. See the stunning Greek Architecture and picturesque landscape. Stroll through the gardens, 120-hectares inspired by the wonders of Rome, Egypt, and Athens.
Then, you will go to Villa d'Este, built during the 16th century by Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este. Explore the beauty of Italian Renaissance architecture with its gardens, fountains, and waterfalls. Step back into history as your guide provides you insight about the notable Roman families that built this villa and called it home. Return to your ship in Civitavecchia by mid-afternoon.
