I think you get a great deal more out of the visit if you have a basic understanding of the size and scope of the villa. It is such a large complex and it is a great deal to take in. If you go without...More

This place is in one word AMAZING. Excavation of this enormous site is still on-going but there is definately enough to admire! Archilogical excavations sometimes fails to reveal or give a god impression og what life might have been like back in time, not so...More

An enormous site with so much to see. Many of the buildings still in tact. Gives you an insight into the extreme extravagance of the Roman Emperors. Give yourself at least 2 hours if you want to see most of the site

It's almost impossible to review a site like this. If you have an interest in history and ruins, you will absolutely love it. If not, it is a LOT of ground to cover, a lot of walking and there are no places to get a...More

This is a very extensive site which is still being excavated. Wonderful history - and lots of unanswered questions... Do not expect much in facilities.

Excited by the visit to another Unesco heritage site we ere ultimately disappointed by the poor signage, almost useless map we were obliged to purchase. Lack of eating facilities.

Wow! If you like Roman ruins then this is for you. You need some imagination to picture what the buildings might have originally looked like. Plus there's lots (and lots) of walking!

This was a half day tour to villa Adriana and villa Desdi. The first was built by an emperor of Rome in about 60 AD and the other by a catholic bishop in 1500. Adriana took 10-14 years to complete and had over 1,000 servants,...More

You can go from Tivoli by bus. The park is very nice and there are a lot of ancient buildings. The price is good.

They are all absolutely worth visiting. I would personally either go to villa deste or villa adriana. These sites are of international importance and are absolutely stunning. It really depends on what period of history you... More

Did you go by bus from Rome to Tivoli, both Villas D'Este and Adriana ? I'm having so much trouble finding ANY info about getting BACK in particular. I don't want to end up stranded! I'm planning to go either on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. I want to see both villas. I understand I can get a Cotral bus from the Mammolo Metro Station to Tivoli Garibaldi Piazza. I know I can get a bus (either 4 or 4x) to Adriana, but I can't find out how often they operate, whether a weekend or weekday is better and how to get back from Adriana to Rome/ Mammolo Metro. Just wondering if you had any info, please? I've looked at many, many, oh so many useless websites, that should tell me and just allude to this and that, but we don't want to get stranded, I know taxis aren't always available and we possibly won't have a phone anyway, to call one. add to that my minimal Italian and my husband's non-existent Italian and we have a bit of confusion. I'd be grateful for any info. thanks.
