What a fascinating site and fabulous stories to be learnt. What a shame then the organisation is so poor. Grumpy front desk (as with all Italian state attractions), dreadful audio guide (no headphones and minimal volume), limited signage to provide a meaningful self- guided tour....More

This was a most interesting day . . . and it is a day! I’d wanted to visit Villa Adrana for a long time and I wasn’t disappointed. This is an enormous site which reflects the demands and interests of the emperor Hadrian. An eclectic...More

The digs are ongoing and the site is amazingly well preserved. Amazing perspective on the life of an ancient Roman Emperor. One needs time to walk and appreciate the area. Make certain to wear good shoes and google the site ahead of time so that...More

Not easy to find if you are driving. Tickets are relatively cheap, just 10 euro plus 5 for additional audio and sat nav. It takes easily 2 to 3 hours to complete the tour. The overall site is both vast and amazing. It must have...More

The Villa was the Home of Hadrian of Wall fame in the UK. It covers an extensive area of ground and well worth a visit. The guide was excellent. Pity there is no cafe facility but the shop is fine

Did a daytrip to Adrians (Hadrian’s) Villa and came away very disappointed. There is very little to see. You cannot imagine what it what was like before. Not worth the ticket price. Not worth the transportation. Not worth the time. Adrian’s Villa has a cafe...More

A must see site. The sheer scale of the grounds is astonishing. Make sure you wear comfy shoes and take plenty of water as there is nothing to eat or drink except a self service kiosk. The site is huge and you will struggle to...More

Totally devoid of atmosphere. The lawns were all manicured, it was just like taking a walk through a well cared- for public park. Toilet facilities, which I expected to be at the entrance/exit, were located somewhere within the grounds, and none too well signed. Been...More
