Once you have decided these things, you can look for the tourist information (maps or books sold in the ticket office of Hadrian's Villa or the free ones at the tourist box office IAT in Garibaldi Square) or, in another hands, you can click in our site and know everything just from your home.

What to take

You need a good and comfortable pair of shoes to visit not only the two Villas, but also the natural routes and the Middle Ages streets of the town. (Be careful in Villa d'Este, because some paths are extremely smooth due to the excessive transit). Don't forget to take with you a cardigan if you visit Hadrian's Villa by night or simply to preserve yourself for the humidity of Villa d'Este.
In summer, if you visit Hadrian's Villa, it's better to take with you a bottle of water since it is really sunny.


Identity card is necessary above all for people under 18 and over 65 to obtain discounts on the ticket prize, as well as students cards, youth cards or driving licence.
