Postcards from Tivoli

Day trip to Tivoli that was an hour away from Rome – there was this website that said something about a bus to take you to the center of the city from the train station. Don’t listen to it. We waited about 20 mins and there was no bus T_T Luckily there were some English tourists on their way back who just told us they walked, gave us a map and recommended some sites to visit :)

One of the places they recommended was the Parco Villa Gregoriana which was a beautiful hike through ruins, waterfalls and so much green! I actually didn’t realise it was a hike because all I heard was waterfall from the English tourists (damn my selective hearing). It takes about 1 – 1.5 hour to walk through it wasn’t easy – especially on a humid-ish day. This one is for the nature lovers.

The whole point of our Tivoli trip was because H wanted to visit Villa d’Este (UNESCO world heritage site). The main site you want to see is the beautiful garden that had so many fountains – it’s so hard to describe it so I’ll let the photos below show you.

Even the bannisters for the stairs had a waterfall down it :D

A lovely day trip to get away from all the hustle and bustle of Rome. Really enjoyed getting a village atmosphere in Tivoli :)
