Our English speaking tour driver will welcome you at the dock beside your cruise ship in Civitavecchia at 8.00am (suggested time). Your Tivoli private tour begins with a brief stop along Via Tiburtina. The travertine marble used to construct the Colosseum was extracted at the quarry here, which is still in use today.
This was the summer residence of one of the most popular Roman Emperors, Hadrian. Walking through this amazingly preserved villa you will have the opportunity to admire some of its wonderful treasures, such as the Pecile (a faithful reconstruction of a porch of ancient Athens), the Naval Theatre, the large thermal baths, the Canpus (a faithful reproduction of an Egyptian shrine), and the Hadrian’s Villa Museum also, filled with precious objects found during the excavations (including a copy of the Amazons by Phidias).
The Villa is a monumental living complex that even today continues to display the lavishness and enormous power of Ancient Rome.
