Hadrian's Villa

Local nameVilla Adriana
LocationTivoli, Italy

The Ancient Roman villa was built in the second century by Hadrian - the emperor of Rome. He chose Tivoli as the spot for his villa because at that era it was a popular destination where rich Romans had their summer villas built.

There are many Greek and Egyptian motives embedded in both its architecture and its decoration. The many fountains, pools, statues and mosaics will remind you of Greek villas or palaces.

If you want to visit Tivoli, you can get there from Rome easily by bus (Ponte Mammolo station) or by train (Tiburtina Rome station). The journey takes about an hour. Be sure to reserve a few hours for the place so you can explore the whole complex.

Once you are in Tivoli, you should consider visiting both Villa Adriana and Villa d’Este (which is also located there) since they are both spectacular and both are listed at the UNESCO World Heritage List.

You can get your tickets to the villa online or you can get them on the spot (but you might need to wait in a queue for a while). Be sure to check the official website for the opening hours of the villa because they vary depending on the time of the year.
