Tivoli, Adrian Villa and Villa d'Este
Let’s immerge ourselves in the dream of Emperor Hadrian as we go back around 2000 years to learn more about one of the most important and extraordinary stories of the entire Roman era.
Let yourselves be taken in by the beauty and magniﬁcence of Villa Adriana (Hadrian's Villa) as our expert guide will tell you all about it! The initial construction began in 118 A.D.
It is the most extensive and most ancient Roman villa that still remains today, grander than Pompeii.
Emperor Hadrian even though considered ruthless, was also considered a great intellectual, a poet and a designer.
He was also restless and adventurous and therefore travelled to many places far and wide.
He was a lover of the Greek culture and architecture. He personally and actively participated in the planning of the construction of his villa.
And in fact, there lies a scattered complex in this immense area (at least 120 hectares), numerous groups of constructions, arranged in a relatively disorganized manner, but in reality, carefully studied and separated from immense and luxuriant gardens, as stated in special recounts from his biography.
Ideally, in his palace, he wanted to reunite the main monuments of the empire, particularly those pertaining to his beloved Greece, his personal Eden, from where he could command his empire completely surrounding himself by luxuries and commodities.
After having visited the villa we will go and explore another jewel of the 15th century Villa d’Este.
This villa was requested by the wealthy Cardinal Ippolito d' Este who made it famous due to the 500 fountains built inside this amazing estate.
It extends from the slopes of the town of Tivoli for about 35000 square meters.
With its impressive concentration of fountains, nymphs, grottoes, plays of water, and music, it constitutes a much-copied model for European gardens in the mannerist and baroque styles, 255
artiﬁcial waterfalls and a fantastic view of the entire surrounding valley.
