Tivoli: the Hadrian Villa and Villa d'Este

Just a few miles away from Rome we will discover places that have a lot of stories to tell.
Hadrian Villa was far more than a residence. It rather was a city reflecting the outstanding diversities of the Roman Empire. The Emperor wanted this place to be his peaceful refuge, away from the political affairs of Rome and where he could express his love for travelling and arts. It was meant to be a place where he could spend hours in thought.
In the very heart of Tivoli, we can also find the extraordinary Villa D’Este and its gardens. A green fantasy of gods and goddesses, tritons and dashing steeds, set among wild rocks, wind-blown trees and a glistening cascades of water are an awe-inspiring sight.

The Capuchin Crypt

The Capuchin Crypt is a small area consisting of several tiny chapels located beneath the church of Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini on Via Veneto, near Piazza Barberini. It contains the skeletal remains of 4,000 bodies believed to be Capuchin friars buried by their order. The Catholic order insists that the display is not meant to be macabre, but a silent reminder of the swift passage of life on Earth and our own mortality.

Guided tour at St Clement’s Basilica and the Mithraic Area

St Clement's Basilica will allow us to go back to the past, up to Roman times by visiting its three levels built one on top of the other. Starting from the twelfth-century Basilica we'll go down to the fourth-century church to finally get to the first-century Roman dwellings.
