Villa d’este – Villa adriana ( Tivoli)

Villa Adriana was built between 118 and 138 AD from Hadrian (Publius Aelius Hadrianus)
Adriano decided to move his residence outside the capital, choosing a green and water-rich territory, near Tivoli, 28 km from Rome,
The Villa includes residential buildings, spas, nymphaeums, pavilions, gardens that alternate according to a completely unusual distribution, which does not reflect the usual sequence of villas and imperial domus
Villa Adriana was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999

Villa d’Este  is a masterpiece of the Italian garden and part of  UNESCO  world heritage, with an impressive concentration of fountains, nymphaeums, caves and water games
Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este, Governor of Tivoli since 1550, immediately caressed the idea of creating a garden along the  slope of the “Valle gaudente”. In 1605 Cardinal Alessandro d’Este started a new program of interventions for the restoration and repair of damage to vegetation and plumbing systems,
Other works were carried out in the years 1660 – 70, when Gianlorenzo Bernini himself was involved.

 

Civita di bagnoreggio

Located on the border of Umbria, in  the Tiber Valley, Civita di Bagnoregio is  squeezed between the two deep ravines of Rio Chiaro and Rio Torbido. It is part of the Most Beautiful Villages of Italy.
For many years it became almost a ghost town, today  Civita di Bagnoregio is connected to its sister Bagnoregio, and to the “rest of the world”, through a very thin and long viaduct. It was rebuilt twice, after the demolition of the old masonry bridge, blown up by the Germans during the Second World War.
Entrance ticket prices to the Borgo
Every day of the year: € 5.00

Ostia antica

The Archaeological Park of Ostia Antica is one of the largest and most famous in Italy, equal only to that of Pompei. Thanks to the nineteenth-century escavations, 34 hectares (out of 50 possible) are rebuilt. Ostia
It seems, according to tradition, that this was one of the first inhabited settlements in Rome (founded by Anco Marzio) therefore one of the oldest areas.
The excavations of Ostia Antica were begun, at the behest of Pius VII in 1800 and were carried out by Pius IX in 1909 with Vaglieri, Paribeni and Calza who helped to resurrect the Ancient Host from the dust of the soil that had buried it.
The excavations of Ostia Antica are located in Via dei Romagnoli 717 and can be easily reached with your own vehicle or by metro, taking the B line towards Laurentina up to Magliana and from here the train to Lido di Ostia up to Ostia Antica, cross the blue pedestrian overpass and go straight to the excavation gate (total time about half an hour).

MARATONA DI ROMA: PRONTI, PARTENZA, VIA!

E mentre i preparativi fervono sempre di più, vi ricordiamo qui di seguito alcuni dettagli importanti. Chi desideri partecipare sappia che… è ancora in tempo!
– la Maratona partirà alle ore 8:50 da Via dei Fori Imperiali, che sarà anche il traguardo;
parallelamente alla corsa di 42 km si terrà un evento non competitivo aperto a tutti: la ROMAFUN Stracittadina, 5 km di camminata che inizieranno alle 9:10 sempre da Via dei Fori Imperiali (ma con punto di ritrovo in Via Cavour alle ore 8:00) e si concluderanno al Circo Massimo;
– date ultime per la registrazione: 5 marzo per la Maratona (per ulteriori informazioni consultare il sito ufficiale; 21 marzo per la Stracittadina (costo: € 8,00 inclusa la maglietta dell’evento);
– una settimana prima dell’evento sarà allestito il Villaggio della Maratona presso il Palazzo dei Congressi (zona EUR), la vetrina ufficiale della competizione (per ritirare pettorali, ecc.);
– il Villaggio della RomaFun attenderà invece i partecipanti al termine della competizione: si tratterà di uno spazio di ristoro, giochi e altri mini-eventi organizzati da diverse associazioni.

INTERNAZIONALI DI TENNIS 2015: AL VIA LE PRE-QUALIFICAZIONI

Già fervono i preparativi per i prestigiosi Internazionali di Tennis, che come da tradizione Roma ospiterà nell’incantevole cornice del Foro Italico a primavera, precisamente dal 9 al 17 maggio 2015.
Più che di preparativi logistici, in realtà si tratta dei tornei di pre-qualificazione che hanno già preso avvio in varie zone di Italia da qualche giorno. Sul modello dello Slam americano, infatti, la celebre competizione internazionale di Roma ha inaugurato dal 2011 una nuova tradizione: ovvero dare la possibilità a qualunque giocatore iscritto alla FIT, senza restrizioni legate al livello o alla classifica, di poter gareggiare sui campi rossi del Foro Italico affianco ai più grandi tennisti della scena internazionale.
I biglietti per il grande torneo di maggio sono già in vendita sui siti officiali, e partono circa da €17, a seconda della partita.
Gli Internazionali di Tennis rappresentano un’ottima occasione per visitare la Città Eterna sotto i raggi primaverili: Yes Hotel è sempre a vostra disposizione per ulteriori dettagli sul torneo e gli altri avvenimenti della Capitale!
