Villa Adriana (Hadrian's Villa) is a large archaeological site, located in Tivoli, Italy. The Emperor Hadrian ordered its construction during the 2nd century AD; excavations have since uncovered an area of 250 acres, making it larger than the more well known Pompeii.
The remains of fountains, baths, and pools as well as farmland can all be seen here, as well as a temple devoted to the Greek God Antinous. Artifacts including vases, mosaics and marble statues have been discovered here.
The huge complex probably employed about several thousand people, who moved around the area in a network of underground tunnels that have been excavated.Places nearby:
