Tivoli is a city in Lazio. Its two main attractions, Villa D'Este and Hadrian's Villa, are each individually worth a long journey. Taken together, they make up a memorable day trip from Rome.

Get in

By train

Trains from Roma Tiburtina station take just over an hour. They are hourly or more frequent.

By bus

Buses serve Tivoli from the Ponte Mammolo metro station on Rome's Line B. The bus also stops near Hadrian's villa.

By car

The Organ Fountain, Villa d'Este

You can drive from the center of Rome, along the Via Tiburtina. However, this is a slow, ugly road that passes through Rome's unattractive suburbs. A quicker route is to take the Autostrada A24 in the direction of L'Aquila. The exit for Tivoli is soon after the main toll station, where you have to take a ticket. However, you should avoid returning by the same route on a weekend evening, particularly during the ski season, as the toll station can get very congested.

Get around

Urban bus 4 goes from the city to the Villa Adriana. Don't be conned into thinking it's walkable. it's nearly four miles and road signs are not good. Besides you need all your time and energy at the Villa.

There are some nice narrow streets with lots of cheap, but good quality, clothes to buy.
