Besides the famous Villas, Tivoli boasts a beautiful historic centre, which, amongst many buildings of interest, has a Roman amphitheatre, the Temple of Vesta and a medieval castle. It is one of Italy's oldest episcopal sees and thus has a fine, ancient Cathedral, which is located on a lovely little square.
The surrounding mountains are ideal for wonderful walks. There are several typical Italian mountain-villages within reach, all of which have coffee bars and pizzerias to entice the weary walker!
FROM OCTOBER TO JUNE, A PAINTING COURSE IS HELD only 10 metres from our villa, with twice-weekly sessions, and there is a separate painting course for children.

La villa est très belle. Son emplacement est stratégique pour faire des visites à Villa d'Este, Villa Adriana et Villa Gregoriana. Les propriétaires sont vraiment très gentils. Notre séjour a été inoubliable. Roxana , Qc, Canada
Villa Maria is wonderful, and less than 30 minutes from Rome. It is located just a few minutes from the ancient town of Tivoli. In the house there was enough space and full privacy! There is a beautiful garden with orange and lemon trees, and many flowers. From the roof terrace you have a nice outlook on the surrounding mountains. The beds are comfortable, and the bathroom well equiped with a modern shower. The owners are friendly and helpful. We will recommand Villa Maria to anyone.
My family had a wonderful stay at Villa Maria! The beds were really comfy, the bathroom well equiped with a bath and great shower with a new, modern glass shield. Throughout the house -inside as well as outside in the beautiful garden- there was more than enough space and complete privacy! Located just a few minutes from the beautiful town of Tivoli and less than 30 mins. from Rome. The owners of the property are extremely friendly and helpful without disrespecting one's privacy! Would defenitely recommand Villa Maria to anyone; couples, families or groups of friends; a perfect holiday is guaranteed!! Lynne Revell
Everything is very functional and fitting the description. The top floor is spacious and has room for a whole family.
If there was a diswashingmachine, it would be rated "excellent"!
Very nice and helpful service from the owners. End of april is perfect for enjoying both countryside and cities (Tivoli with Villa Hadriana and Villa ´Este. You can leave the car at parking(only 1.5 Euro a day) at the end of the metro line if you want to go to Rome.
Good location for visiting Rome and Tivoli and very close to Villa Adriana. Excellent baker nearby. Renee very helpful. Would go back.
My husband and I rented Villa Maria for January and February of 2009. It is a wonderful home, very well kept. The best part of this rental is the location: it is within very easy walking distance from a bus stop into Rome, two large grocery stores, banks, restaurants, etc., and there is a fabulous bakery just around the corner. The landlords are extremely helpful and friendly, and we became comfortable with them as well as their adult daughter, who was a joy.
The only drawbacks to this rental would be the smallest kitchen I have ever seen and the one bedroom in the basement, which in winter is very cold. Also, the washer (no dryer) is up two flights of stairs, so this would not be a good fit for a handicapped person.
I would recommend this rental enthusiastically and would, in fact, stay there again at any time. The price is right, the location is ideal, and the people are friendly.
The villa is located in a residential district called Villa Adriana. A shopping centre and several restaurants are located close to the villa. It is about 25 km distance from Rome, to which there are frequent bus and train connections.
The ancient town of Tivoli only a five-minute bus-ride away. Tivoli is famous for the three Villas located within its territory.
The Villa Adriana (Hadrian’s Villa) was built by Emperor Hadrian, and is composed of a big estate with many ancient Roman buildings.
The Villa D’Este was the residence of Cardinal D’Este, who was governor of Tivoli around 1550, at a time when the Pope ruled this part of Italy.
The Villa Gregoriana is a beautiful park with large waterfalls and ancient ruins.
Close to the villa are the famous thermal baths, where you can bathe in constantly-renewed, sulphur rich mineral water. These baths are fed by volcanic wells, which result in constant water temperature of 23° Celsius. The water has highly restorative and curative properties, especially for the skin, besides providing a very pleasant sensation.
Other Activities include the painting course held near the villa.
