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.
