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.
