The Tivoli you don't expect

italiano inglese

"In the last few days I have been to Tivoli and I have seen one of the first wonders of nature.
The waterfalls, the ruins and the overall landscape belong to those objects,
the knowledge of which enriches our most inner souls."

J.W. Goethe

Tivoli, Superb City

Ancient Tivoli, called Tibur Superbum by Virgil in his Aeneid, has a much longer history than Rome’s and dates back to 1215 BC, when it was considered the most important point of convergence of different peoples.

This is borne out by the Sanctuary of Hercules Victor, a structure dating back to the 2nd century BC and still visible today.
Today’s image of Tivoli is inextricably linked to its thermal baths and to the three magnificent villas which adorn it: the spectacular Villa d'Este and the archaeological area of Villa Adriana (Hadrian’s Villa), both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and the landscape view of Villa Gregoriana, run by the FAI (The Italian Environmental Fund). The unique sceneries that emerge from this area were a favourite of poets, painters and rich aristocrats who used to come here in the 19th century during their Grand Tour.
The Tivoli "Grand Tour" is a charming trip through the archaeology, history, places of worship and natural sceneries inside Tivoli that you don't expect - well cared for by the love of its citizens and highly appreciated by tourists and lovers of beauty.
