Villa Adriana, Tivoli

4.2
More than just a single ruined villa, heritage-listed Villa Adriana is a vast complex of classical buildings constructed by Emperor Hadrian. Erected in the second century CE, these buildings once combined the finest elements of the Egyptian, Greek, and Roman cultures. Though the ruins are rapidly deteriorating due to their great age and the unforgiving weather, the site continues to provide visitors with a rare chance to glimpse the opulence once enjoyed by the rulers of ancient Rome. Hadrian was said to dislike his official palace in the city of Rome, and allegedly spent the last years of his reign governing from here, his favorite estate. Tickets can be purchased and audio guides rented at the entrance into the site.  Plan to visit Villa Adriana during your Tivoli vacation using our convenient Tivoli road trip planner.

  • Cost of euro 8.00 without even giving a free map. Disproportionate price considering that the Louvre Museum costs 15.00 discouraged.

  • Of the three villas located on the territory of the town, this is the oldest. It was built in ancient times. Keep on view partly preserve native mode. So, when you walk between the columns and statues, you can imagine you are transported to ancient Rome by time machine.

  • For those who watch the huge plastic, surrounded by a crowd of tourists, cannot fail to appreciate the unique beauty of the Villa Adriana, also under the scorching sun of July was pleasant to listen to the story told by the Guide. Watch this place of wonder where time seems to stand still. The man sadly celebrated the destruction of this majestic place, pillaging as it was possible to take away ... a visit that remains in the heart
