The summer capital of Hadrian, one of the most popular Roman emperors. As you walk through this amazingly preserved villa, you will have the opportunity to admire some of the wonderful treasures such as Pesir (a faithful reconstruction of the ancient Athens porch), the Navy Theater, a wonderful hot spring, and Campus (a faithful reproduction of Egypt Shrine) and the villa museum of Hadrian. It is full of valuable items found during the excavation (including a copy of Phidias's Amazon). The Hadrian’s villa is one of Italy's UNESCO World Heritage Sites and is still a monumental residential complex that still demonstrates the generosity and immense power of ancient Rome.
It was built by the grandson of Pope Alexander VI. In the 16th century, it was one of the most beautiful palaces and gardens in Italy, and perhaps throughout Europe. It started and was commissioned when Cardinal Ippolito d'Este of Ferrara was elected Governor of Tivoli. The entire complex consists of a geometric system of fountains, basements, modified paths, ramps, and stairs around arched sidewalks. It is considered the pinnacle of the European garden concept. This villa was home to the son of Lucrezia Borgia, famous for its incredibly beautiful gardens, stunning fountains, breathtaking waterfalls and 100-year-old trees.
The Romans quickly recognized the strategic importance of Tivoli because it crossed the Lazio region and was close to the Aniene River, one of the main tributaries of the Tiber. This is how Tivoli was founded in the 4th century BC,recognized as a municipality of Rome underLex Julia Municipalis. From that moment on, Tivoli became home to many of the wealthiest Roman villas, including Horace, Cassius, PublioQuintilio Varo andManlioVopisco.
