Tivoli is only some 40 kilometers away from Rome and serves as an excellent display of the opulence with which the emperors glorified themselves outside of the Imperial Capital. One need not a great imagination to envision the full glory of the still-present sumptuousness of the complexes, fountains, and gardens. Today, it is world-famous for its villas and sulphur baths.

Villa d’Este is known for its water system and the architecture of its gardens, including the fountains and Villa Gregoriana, a green park with impressive waterfalls. Relaxation in one of the sulphur baths will refresh your tired muscles in order to make sure that you see the ruins of the Villa Adriana before you set off again for one of the other magnificent cities.
