Take a tour of Hadrian's Villa in Tivoli, Italy – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. Named for the Roman emperor who designed it, Hadrian's Villa is a place of classical beauty. The Emperor Hadrian designed this place as a retreat from Rome's worries. The villa had several palaces, a theater, temples, libraries, and hot baths. Supposedly, Hadrian designed many parts of the villa based on places in the Empire he had visited. Though much of the villa is in ruins, there are other parts that have been restored. Hadrian's villa features statues and structures from mythology and the legends of history.
