The visit was included on our bus tour, right after Villa d’Este. It must have been an incredibly amazing place during the rein of the emperor Hadrian. Only 1/5 of the complex is visible, no one was there except our bus. I recommend buying the...More

Aside from the place being very impressive and giving you a glimpse of how the roman emperors lived, there are also very low crowds, which makes it a perfect escape from Rome.

If you absolute enthusiast, then yes certainly. Others may feel like, "me too", after Rome. I always wanted to visit Tivoli. If you are travelling to Vieste and surrounds, then Tivoli is a great stop.

I would highly recommend a visit to Hadrian’s Villa or Villa Adriana if you are interested to see how the Roman Emperors lived.

Villa Adriana really exceeded my expectations. There are stunning ruins and unlike Pompeii - these ruins really talk about the size and importance of the Roman empire - as they were largely for the enjoyment of the Emporer Hadrian. Ok - some key tips. 1....More
