VILLA D’ESTE AND VILLA ADRIANA
The Villa Tivoli (Villa d’Este) is situated 30 km away from Rome. It can become the most unforgettable excursion, since it is one of the most famous Italian villas of the 16th century. The villa complex includes a palace and an adjoining garden. It is located on the outskirts of Tivoli. The greatest attraction for the garden visitors are fountains, which are considered the highest achievement of Peterhof. Peter the Great was so fascinated by all the fountains when he visited the Villa D’Este that he decided to build Peterhof, but on a more grandiose scale. The Villa d’Este was designed and built by Ferrara Cardinal Ippolito II D’Este, the son of the famous Lucrezia Borgia and Alfonso d’Este.
Villa Adriana When Publius Aelius Hadrianus assumed power on 2 August 117, the Roman Empire was at the height of its powers. Hadrianus was a shrewd politician and an excellent military commander, he was able to understand the cultural and civil needs of his era, combining Hellenistic culture with the practical management ability that the Romans had been able to prove throughout many centuries. This historical reality and romantic attraction manifested itself in the architecture of the Villa Adriana.
