Hadrian's Villa and Tivoli

Has anyone explored Hadrian's Villa and/or Tivoli? It looks like a great site and not too far from Rome. Any advice on guides, transportation, etc would be greatly appreciated.

We visited Hadrian's Villa and Tivoli last October. It had been on our wish list forma while. It exceeded oir expectations! We toured the Villa with a guide and then were free to explore the gardens and extensive number of fountains. Beautiful, highly recommended.. You can take a Metro to a bus or the train out there. The small town is also attractice.

We did this as a day trip a couple of years ago. We followed Rick's outline using the bus. We left Rome for Tivoli, then another bus to Hadrians villa. We had a nice lunch in the restuarant opposite the entrance to the villa before we entered. The sight is huge, we walked a lot. Bus back to Rome. It was a fulfilling day and easy to handle. By the time we headed back it was rush hour..I have never, ever been in a more packed bus than that day. I spent the entire trip standing or squashed against the windshield. The bus driver spent the entire trip on her cellphone. All together a memorable excursion.
