From Rome, I took the train to Ponte Mammolo, bought tickets in one of the tabachis near the station with the return ticket totals 4Euros and 20cents. I asked where to wait for the bus that goes to Villa Adriana, they told me to go up and wait for the bus that arrives then ask the driver if it's going... More

Wanted to visit somewhere different from all the city centre attractions and having read about this in a guide book decided to give it a go, not the easiest place to get to but can be done with a bit of research, it's mainly ruins but to think it was built by Hadrian in the 2nd century AD it's amazing...

On what was one of the hottest days 40C What an incredible place, so much history and the scale of the place WOW!! Take plenty of water with you. Although there are drinking water taps dotted about, if it is very hot like it was when I was there you'll find they are a bit sparse. Take time to look... More

An amazing site just about 30-45 minutes from Rome. I did this on a day tour that included the Villa d'Este. I thought it was amazing. So well preserved. You can see some original marble and mosaics. The pool towards the end is stunningly beautiful. I loved it!

On the face of it, Hadrian's Villa promises so much. A large, sprawling site set in a beautiful setting with large, imposing ruins to explore. So much history to discover, so much wealth and decadence to experience from such an iconic Emperor. Sadly though, the rude, disinterested staff, lack of any support materials and the so called information boards detracted... More

Do not miss Villa Adriana, near Tivoli, just 30 minutes away from Rome center. I recommend going there with a guided tour or private guide to appreciate this enormous complex built by Hadrian. We left Rome at 09:00 and returned by 13:30 in a private car. I guess in summer it has to be very hot as it is an... More

Reposted due to some errors in my original review, stemming from an incorrect 'smart' phone auto correct. Instead of saying that there were no facilities, I said that there were no factories on site, which is true, but not what I was trying to say. No options to amend and resubmit. So, anyway, as I said before, with some additional... More

These ruins are great to visit and another example of the incredible places Hadrian built. I highly recommend doing this with a guide otherwise you really don't appreciate what this place was like and the history of it.

Absolutely love this large historical complex. Visited on a bitterly cold sunny day, which was not typical for Italian winter. Nevertheless, the beauty and the scale of this villa can't fail to impress. Highly recommended.
