Hadrian, The imperial palace, Tivoli

Hadrian built himself a vast palace in the countryside, the villa Adriana in Tivoli about 30 kilometres east of Rome. It was a huge complex, designed to accommodate thousands of people. It was his administrative capital and represents his empire in miniature. British Museum Director Neil MacGregor visits. © Trustees of the British Museum. Created by British Museum.
