Tivoli : Michelin's recommendations
The ancient town of Tibur (now Tivoli), a holiday destination since the Roman Empire, boasts two stunning villas: the extraordinary Villa Adriana built by the Emperor Hadrian in AD 126, considered in its day to be Antiquity’s most elaborate complex of buildings; and the equally remarkable Villa d’Este, built in 1550 for Cardinal d’Este and famous for its magnificent gardens.
