Villa d'Este

  • Villa d'Este is a villa in Tivoli just outside of Rome. Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, it is a fine example of Renaissance architecture and the Italian Renaissance garden.  
  • The Villa d'Este was commissioned by Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este, son of Alfonso I d'Este and Lucrezia Borgia and grandson of Pope Alexander VI. He had been appointed Governor of Tivoli by Pope Julius III, with the gift of the existing villa, which he had entirely reconstructed. The tour includes the Villa, the gardens and the fountains.

Hadrians Villa

  • The Hadrians Villa (Villa Adriana in Italian) is a large Roman archaeological complex at Tivoli, Italy.
  • The villa was constructed at Tibur (modern-day Tivoli) as a retreat from Rome for Roman Emperor Hadrian during the second and third decades of the 2nd century AD. Hadrian was said to dislike the palace on the Palatine Hill in Rome, leading to the construction of the retreat. During the later years of his reign, he actually governed the empire from the villa. A large court therefore lived there permanently. The tour includes most of the exceptional complex of classical buildings created in the 2nd century A.D.​
