Emperor Hadrian's Villa is the largest and most luxurious residence in the coutryside ever made with its fabulous and impressive array of imperial halls, thermal baths, temples, theatres and pools.

The Villa’s countless fountains, set in the heart of magnificent Italian style gardens, create a delightfully graceful symphony of carved stone, shade, sunlight and water fountains which are all gravity-powered, a miracle of hydraulic engineering.
