Description


Tivoli Gardens and Fountains


You will meet your driver at ship dock or at tender mooring; he will wait for you handling the Onirikos arrival board.

He will drive you to Tivoli where you will meet your Professional Guide in order to experience a unique excursion.

Two thousand years ago Emperor Hadrian built his palatial playground in Tivoli and during the Renaissance, it became the vacation of choice for the Vatican’s foremost Cardinals. Discover what they saw in this picturesque hill town on your Tivoli Orientation Tour, visiting two grand palaces from vastly different eras – one a magnificent ruin of marble statues, crumbling columns and abandoned lakes; the other a Renaissance masterpiece, as grand now as it ever was.

During the tour you will have the chance to visit Hadrian’s Villa: as your guide leads you outside and through the ruins of Hadrian’s Villa, you’ll learn that the fun is in the guesswork. With sites like the baths it’s easy to draw a solid conclusion, but what of the theatre with no space for an audience? Or the religious building dedicated to Antinous – the beautiful Greek boy Hadrian wept for – is it a tomb or a shrine? Join your tour guide in a team effort to rebuild this majestic 2nd century ruin from the ground up.

You’ll have earned a break at our second stop – the Villa d’Este. Once a convent, the villa was requisitioned by Vatican Cardinals during the Renaissance and revamped as their summer retreat. Your time here is free so after an introduction from your guide, choose to explore the frescoes and gilding inside or take a wander through the world-famous terraces and gardens of the palace. Perched on a hill overlooking the Roman countryside and its lakes, this is easily the region’s most photogenic spot so be sure to bring your camera.

After the tour your driver will escort you back to the Port.

About Us

We offer unique access to some of the most unavailable & undiscovered experiences one can imagine. A Milan shopping experience in a fashion designer’s showroom? A private dinner in Venice on the roof terrace of Peggy Guggenheim? Quad bike trekking on the active Etna volcano with an extreme-sport guide? Whatever your client can dream, we can deliver. We focus on designing non-Googleable experiences—watching the Palio di Siena horse race from a hot-air balloon; visiting the private castle where the Godfather trilogy was shot. Kids love visiting an ice cream factory, while big kids clamor for a chance to drive a Maserati or Lamborghini.

Visit to Excavation underneath the Vatican • Truffle Hunt in Tuscany or Piemonte • Vasari Corridor in Florence • Private visit to the Sistine Chapel
