 Hadrian's Villa (Villa Adriana)  set in a vast green area at the foot of beautiful green hills. Here, in the 2nd century AD, Emperor Hadrian built his suburban Villa and created the most sublime settings for his Imperial Court of about 15,000 people.

Villa d'Este, built for Cardinal Ippolito d'Este, Lucrezia Borgia's son. The Villa, which used to be a convent, was turned into a luxurious Villa d'Otium for the Cardinal who was governor of Tivoli. Built by Pirro Ligorio, most of the hill surrounding it and the town quarter underneath was destroyed to create the most beautiful fountains, well over 100 of which were meant to enact jets d'eau at the sound of the organs.
