We booked our morning trip to Tivoli. They picked us up from the apartment and dropped us nearby on our return. Although the transfer from shuttle bus to coach was a little chaotic, we cannot fault the rest of the tour which embraced Villa Adriana and Villa d’Este. The guides were excellent and multi-lingual – the tour was in English, French, Spanish and German. A little expensive but it saved the hassle of getting there by public transport. Ask for a discount if RHA guests.

We had a great tour guide who shared his expert knowledge of the two sites and asked questions to keep the group engaged and interested. He showed us all of the rooms in the Villa d’Este. At Hadrian’s Villa he pointed out all of the sites and their possible uses and talked with some archaeologists present about recent findings. Perfect!

My husband and I had a very good experience for the Tivoli tour. We visited Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este. The tour guides were knowledge and interesting. Hadrian’s Villa was huge and Villa d’Este was magnificent. The gardens and fountains were amazing. Again, Carrani provided an excellent tour. Recommended!
