The adventure and fun of this tour starts with a relaxing drive through the Lazio region. This tour will allow you to better understand why Villa D'Este stands out to be the most prominent and famous among the tourists? The breathtaking gardens, about 500 jets in fountains, pools and water-troughs are the ideal picnic points. The Villa's uppermost terrace ends in a balustrade balcony at the left end, with a sweeping view over the plain below. Symmetrical double flights of stairs flanking the central axis lead to the next garden terrace, with the Grotto of Diana, richly decorated with frescoes and pebble mosaic to one side and the central Fontana del Bicchierone ("Fountain of the Great Cup") loosely attributed to Bernini, where water issues from a seemingly natural rock into a scrolling shell-like cup.
Villa Adriana, was constructed at Tivoli as a retreat from Rome for Roman Emperor Hadrian during the 2nd century AD. Hadrian was said to dislike the palace on the Palatine Hill in Rome, leading to the construction of the retreat. Hadrian's Villa (Villa Adriana) was a complex of over 30 buildings, covering an area of about 1 KM2 (c. 250 acres) of which much is still unexcavated. The complex includes palaces, theatre, temples, libraries, state rooms and quarters for courtiers, praetorians and slaves.
