We spent the afternoon here as part of a full day tour with Your Way Tours and really we could have spent all day. The villa is very interesting but the gardens are spectacular.

Good fountains, picturesque with lovely photostops. Largely 3-4 fountains which are really beautiful or a set apart out of a set of 30 odd fountains. The villa also has some lovely frescos but nothing outstanding. We spent about 1.5-2 leisurely hours. Not a bad idea...More

The garden is truely amazing, not so much the plants, but the fountains. I thought it well worth the visit. Tivoli is easily reached by train (55 mins) then about 15 min walk from the station to Villa d'Este. The Villa was interesting enough, but...More

This is certainly one of the most beautiful Baroque gardens I have seen. The artwork and architecture is phenomenal.

Went for Father's Day- even though I've been many many times to the villa (first time in 1974!) I still find it a magical place. The fountains range from grand to whimsical.

Beautiful palace and gardens. Fountains - so many, all very different and beautiful. You can use car rent, or take a train from Rome.

If we come around June 20 with a tour group that does "not" include lunch, and we have to find lunch ourselves, need we walk long distance to find a place? There probable will be lots of tours, won't there? Need we wait in line for a long time to eat lunch? Could you recommend a place that serves genius Italian food, not too far to walk, and maybe not too expensive? Thanks.

Villa d'Este is close to city centre. So everything is near, just a few steps away, also quite a few smaller restaurants. And you should also consider that good food is never fast! ;-)
Hello. Can you please give me your opinion on taking the bus or the train from Rome to Tivoli to see Villa Adriana and d'Este? Is the bus better to get to Adriana and the train for d'Este or is one way better than the other? Thank you in advance!

You take a bus from the train station but you will need to check when the last one leaves. Don't get caught there as it would be an expensive taxi fare. The bus at Tivoli to return to Rome is on the right side when you... More
