Pass By: ItalyBesTours, Via Castel Campanile N. 300, 00054 Rome Italy

Tour Description:

Your private driver will pick you up from your accommodation in central Rome in a luxury minivan.

In around 45 minutes you’ll reach Tivoli town, where you’ll tour Villa d’Este first.

Villa D’Este, built in the heart of the Renaissance around 1550, for the will of the Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este, Tivoli’s governor.

Walk around the Villa with your private local guide (if option guide included booked), taking in the gardens and posing for photos in front of Bernini-designed fountains while learning about the Cardinal and his lavish life in the Villa. Villa d'Este's fame, however, is due more to its gardens than to the building itself.

This most famous Italian-style garden, which has been imitated, reverberates with the sound of so many fountains that inspired the Romantic composer Franz Liszt to write a piano suite called “Fountains of the Villa d'Este.”

Then you’ll spend some time in the town of Tivoli itself and take a leisurely stroll in the small ancient town, the town offers a wide view over the Roman countryside, stopping also for lunch in a good restaurant with an unbelievable location (own expense).

In the afternoon, you’ll visit Villa Adriana.

The magnificent Hadrian’s Villa (Villa Adriana), the former holiday home of Emperor Hadrian. It was built in the 2nd century AD. It's more similar to a small village than a home in today’s sense of the word.

Hadrian's Villa was a complex of over 30 buildings, covering an area of at least 1 square kilometers (c. 250 acres) of which much is still not excavated. The Villa was the greatest Roman example of an Alexandrian garden, recreating a sacred landscape.

The complex included palaces, several baths, theatre, temples, libraries, staterooms, and quarters for courtiers, praetorians, and slaves.

After Villa Adriana visit you will return to your hotel or accommodation in Rome.

Is possible to have an Official Licensed Guide (selecting Guide Included Option) for the Villa D'Este and Villa Adriana.

Official Licensed Guides (available in English), if booked, are selected by us.

If no private licensed guide is chosen, you can rent audio-guides (available in English, French, German and Spanish).

Debería ser quatreterre
Cinqueterre es un paseo que tenía muchas expectativas, pero, aparte de ser un aglomerado de turistas, y eso lo entiendo, el servicio prestado al turista deja mucho a desear. En Corniglia, con un sol de justicia, petado de turista, y viene un microbús para subir la multitud al pueblo. Cuando compras el billete combo, que es todos los trenes y cuantas veces quieras en un día, tambien entra servicio de internet, cosa que no es cierta, u te dicen que tambien está incluido el “Autobús “ en Corniglia, y luego es un microbús que tiene que hacer mil viajes para subir a todos los turistas. El paisaje, espectacular.
