A reality that is located a few minutes from Rome and that holds an immense treasure from the architectural beauties point of view: so could be called Tivoli, the old Tibur (as the ancient Romans defined it) in addition, the supreme Virgil called ‘Superbum’ in the Aeneid VII book.
Today’s Tivoli is a reality made of landscapes immersed in greenery and natural beauties. Is a location of enchanted places in which there are impressive works of edification: above all the 3 villas of Tivoli, ie Villa d’Este, Villa Adriana and Villa Gregoriana (the first two UNESCO World Heritage, the third FAI asset, Fund for the Italian Environment).
A panorama that in the past inspired poets, writers, musicians and that was included in the famous Grand Tour, a journey that was undertaken in the Renaissance to learn about history, art and literature in order to have a contact with rich territories of beauties of various kinds.
Tivoli is still today like a treasure chest that preserves much of that beauty and that, not surprisingly, is one of the most popular destinations for millions of tourists for its strategic proximity to Rome.
