What you'll do

According to some scholars, Tivoli is one of the oldest cities in the region, even older than Rome itself!

This means that this village located on the slopes of the Tiburtini Mountains east of the city has a unique concentration of beauty and history. It has always been a nerve centre for trade, and after being conquered by Rome it also became a beautiful residential area full of villas, as evidenced by the beautiful Villa Adriana, as well as numerous other remains of villas of Roman nobles. The famous Villa d'Este was built during the papal hegemony, on the orders of Cardinal Ippolito d'Este and his successors. The villa and its beautiful gardens are masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance and are now UNESCO World Heritage Sites.


This tour departing from our village will allow you to fully appreciate the Villa's beauty and have a panoramic overview of Tivoli. Don't miss this jewel in the history of Lazio!
