One day

you can visit both Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa. In summer we suggest you visit Hadrian's Villa in the morning, because Villa d'Este offers a shady garden, where you can pass a pleasant afternoon. If you decide to visit Tivoli on Monday (Villa d'Este closed day) don't despair, you can see the old town of Tivoli following one or all three routes we suggest you (red, yellow, green).

Two days

you made the right decision that will permit you to know better Tivoli. We suggest you visit the two Villas (Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este) in two different days, so you will not get tired and you will enjoy the places. Waiting for the re-opening of Rocca Pia, you can see the Gregorian Villa, the historical centre of the town we suggest you (red, yellow, green), in order to know the hidden corners of the town with its churches, temples and Middle Ages houses.

Three days

to stay three days in a small city as Tivoli may sound a bit excessive, but it's not this way. After have visited what we suggested before, you can choose among different things to see in the third day. First of all, a trip in the surroundings of Tivoli at the Sanctuary of Quintiliolo. If you love nature, we suggest you, above all from March to October, to go to Pomata, or follow the route to the old Sanctuary of the Dea Bona or, finally, the Nature route that offers a magnificent view on the town and on the river Aniene. If you prefer to see other cultural places, you must not miss to visit the Sanctuary of Ercole Vincitore, one of the most important Roman Sanctuaries in the world. But, in this case, you have to ask for an authorization to the Archaeological Superintendence of Lazio).

four days

in this way you have the opportunity to see the towns belonging to the Aniene Valley. For example, you may visit the Sacro Speco (Monastery of S.Benedetto and S.Scolastica) in Subiaco or the Sanctuary of the Fortuna Primigenia in Palestrina.
