Villa Adriana

Villa Adriana (Hadrian’s Villa) was constructed at Tibur (now Tivoli) as a retreat from Rome for Roman Emperor Hadrian in the early 2nd century.

Hadrian’s villa was a complex of over 30 buildings, covering an area of at least 1 sq. Km, and included palaces, several thermae, theatre, temples, libraries and quarters for courtiers, praetorian and slaves.

After Hadrian, the villa was used by his various successors. In the 16th century Cardinal Ippolito II D’Este had much of the marble and statues in Hadrian’s villa removed to decorate his own Villa D’Este, located nearby.

Villa d’Este, located in the historical centre of Tivoli, is one of the finest examples of Renaissance architecture and Italian Renaissance gardens.

Villa d’Este was commissioned by Cardinal Ippolito II D’Este; drawing inspiration (and many statues and much of the marble used for construction) from the nearby Villa Adriana, and reviving Roman techniques of hydraulic engineering to supply water to an unexampled sequence of fountains, the cardinal created an elaborate fantasy garden whose mixture of architectural elements and water features had an enormous influence on European landscape design.
