My daughter and I had a wonderful day walking around Villa Adriana. I had no idea how large an area this villa was going to cover. The view is breathtaking. No wonder Hadrian built his villa here.

Last minute visit, huge place, fantastic buildings. Probably needs better signage and information boards but well worth a visit.

We had to Ask a lot of people about the bus, because the Tourist Office were closed, but managed to Get there. As always in Italy we wondered why it seems so difficult to mark the fermatas with the schedules. The place is so impressive...More

We were there Easter and it was not too crowded, The bus schedule was confusing and we ended up taking a taxi after waiting an hour. The archeological site itself had fairly good information on signs, but the audio guide numbers were often badly weathered...More

Hi, I am really torn between doing Hadrian's villa under my own steam v is public transport or to do a day tour that includes villa Este. I was looking at booking through viator but can't get a sense of how big the tour groups are plus I'm not sure if a couple of hours would be enough? Any comments to help me decide? Thanks!
