The city is located on the Aniene River on the western slopes of the Tiburtini Mountains .


Tibur was a city of the Latins who joined the whole of Latium in the 4th century BC. Came under Roman control ( Municipium 90 BC). In front of the city, Emperor Hadrian built an extensive villa complex , the Villa Adriana , as a summer residence. The splendid palace and gardens with artificial lakes, water features and theaters have made Tivoli a synonym for amusement parks.

Even in the Middle Ages, Tivoli was one of the most important places around Rome. In the middle of the 16th century, Pirro Ligorio built the Villa d'Este, famous for the fountains in its Renaissance garden, for Cardinal Ippolito d'Este .

The romantic location of the city with the waterfalls of the Aniene and the ancient ruins has always attracted artists.
