This is the emperor Hadrian's villa on the outskirts of Rome. It's a vast site. There is a lot to see and its also an ongoing archeological site. All the buildings have detailed information boards. We did take an audio guide but found we didn't...More

Far from the crowded Rome places (but only 35 min from Rome), it's an incredible place. All the luxurious places of the world at the beginning of the 1st century where concentrated there. Look at a YouTube reconstruction of the old palaces and you will...More

For those interested in Roman history this is really fantastic. We really enjoyed the visit. Quite some walking to do. Bring water with you especially on hot days. There are some water fountains with drinkable water in the compound.

Very large domain with numerous Roman remains. Very quiet place, few tourists. Very interesting for people that like wandering around on archeological sites, imagining how it must have been in the Roman period. Management could make more efforts however to make the place a bit...More

Spent about 3-4 hours here. Incredibly picturesque. Every view yields an unforgettable sight. Don't miss the Maritime Theater! Incredibly well preserved/restored 1900 year old royal villa.

This is a large site and will take at least half a day to really see everything. The parking and map and audioguide are at an extra cost. The map of the site was small and made it rather hard to orientate yourself, however it...More
