Introduction

The Villa d'Este is almost in the centre of Tivoli but it's worth asking on the bus if you want to go straight there - you save one stop!
The Villa was built for Cardinal Hippolito d'Este II after 1560. he had already done a lot to resuscitate the Vila Adriana. The Villa is worth a look but the glory of the place is in its gardens - particularly in its fountains. The Organ Foutain actually sounds at pre-announced times.
