Hadrian's Villa is an ancient Imperial Roman Villa situated 30
km North- East of Rome in the city of Tivoli in Italy. It was
constructed by the Ancient Roman Emperor Hadrian to commemorate
his attachment to his lover who drowned in the Nile River.
History claims that it was an accident. Whatever happened to the
young man will never be known. Nevertheless an Egyptian motif is
commonly seen in statues of Hadrian's Villa. As you walk through
the ruins of Hadrian's Villa of the entertainment complex of the
ruler you can notice obvious influence of Hellenistic Egypt on
the layout and architecture.
