This place was so pretty! The story behind it is cool, and they have a mini recreation of the grounds for you to see when you get there. Quite a walk from the parking lot, but well worth a day trip.

Huge facility and amazing what they built, but all in ruins now and poorly preserved for so long. OK, but not brilliant for me and my partner.

History is not my thing, but this place was spectacular. To think of how it was built and run without the modern day tools and conveniences is pretty incredible. The mosaic floors that are uncovered is just “flooring”. A shouldn’t miss if you wanna to...More

An interesting archaeological site. As all I believe it is fundamental to be accompanied by a guide given you have to imagine the way it was and try to relive the grandeur of ancient Rome

Our visit there was not what I hoped for and part of it was our fault; we should have hired a guide. But a big problem was also that the the signage for each building or area in the complex was not well done. Sometimes...More

You can easily purchase your entrance ticket at Villa Adriana when you get there. There is a ticket office and a very nice gift shop there. There's no need to make any advance purchase online.
