If you are in Rome and want to reach Tivoli, take the A24 highway out of Rome and then take the Tivoli exit; if you want to avoid the highway toll, you can take the Via Tiburtina Valeria.

Once in the town centre of Tivoli, you can leave your car at the Piazza Matteotti parking lot and start your walking tour. The walk starts with a visit to Rocca Pia and to the ancient Roman amphitheater, also called the Bleso amphitheater; from here it is only a short walk to Piazza Garibaldi, where you can admire the sculpture by Arnaldo Pomodoro, and then proceed to the Church of Saint Mary Major (or of Saint Francis). Going on with the stroll on Via della Missione you will head to Palazzo San Bernardino, where the municipal office is; after that, you will arrive in Piazza Palatina and Piazza Rivarola: if you go on and take Via della Sibilla, you will finally reach the temples of Vesta and of the Sybil.
