Come and Discover:
two wonderful villas from two different epochs in the Tivoli area, 19 miles to the east of Rome. Hadrian's Villa was constructed in the 2nd century AD by the emperor Hadrian, and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Hadrian created an imperial garden estate that is considered the epitome in architecture of luxuriousness, and elegance of the Ancient Roman world.
Villa d'Este was built for the governor Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este in the 16th century by Pirro Ligorio.
The villa complex, also a UNESCO World Heriage Site, is noted for its terraced, manicured Renaissance gardens, and its magnificent fountains. Discoveries at Hadrian's Villa also influenced the decoration of the villa and the garden itself.
