Villa Adriana (Tivoli) also known as Hadrian's Villa in English, is a World Heritage Site in Tivoli, near Rome, preserving the complex of classical buildings erected by the Roman Emperor Hadrian during the 2nd century. The complex was erected in Tibur, now modern-day Tivoli, as Emperor Hadrian did not like staying at the palace on Palatine Hill in Rome.

Villa Adriana was used by the emperor as a retreat, and in the later years of his reign, he governed the empire from there, resulting in a permanent staff being stationed there with runners delivering postal messages connecting them to Rome.

Villa Adriana (Tivoli) was inscribed as a World Heritage Site during the 23rd session of the World Heritage Committee in Marrakesh, Morocco, on 29 November - 4 December, 1999.
