A masterpiece of Renaissance architecture, the 16th-century palace boasts glorious gardens with Baroque fountains designed by the master sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Relax as you ride back to Rome. Your coach can drop you at Termini Station, Via Veneto, Piazza Barberini, Piazza Venezia, or Piazza della Repubblica.

Trip was good about thirty to forty minutes. Driver drove well. Hadrian’s villa felt a bit rushed. It is huge but not all of it has been excavated. So we could have seen more. The tour guide explained much and well. He was knowledgeable. Villa d’este was beautiful.

I did mention this to the guide. There isn’t enough time to visit both sites. The Villa d’Este should be a separate tour. By the time we finished Hadrian’s Villa and got to Villa d’Este we got 15 minutes to explore the gardens. That wasn’t enough time to walk down the steps

Ridiculously short times at both sites. Commentary by the male guide added little and I would suggest Wikipedia research before the trip is far more worthwhile.
