Hadrian's Villa and Villa D'Este in Tivoli

Villa Adriana, located in Tivoli, is an archaeological complex dating back to the 2nd century AD. and represents one of the largest and most sumptuous imperial residences ever built. Commissioned by the emperor Hadrian, the villa was a true microcosm that reproduced monuments, landscapes and atmospheres dear to the emperor, including the baths, the Canopus (a pool that reproduced the Nile), the Pecile (a colonnaded portico) and the Praetorium.

The villa is characterized by a mix of architectural styles, which reflect Hadrian's eclectic taste. The ruins, immersed in a suggestive landscape, offer a fascinating starting point for a journey through time and the daily life of ancient Rome.
