Among the fascinating structures at Villa Adriana, a complex of over 30 buildings constructed in the 2nd century as a retreat from Rome for Emperor Hadrian, is Maritime Theatre. On the island during ancient times sat a small Roman house that included an atrium, a library, a triclinium, and small baths. Originally this island was connected to the portico by two drawbridges. This area was most likely Hadrianâ€™s hideaway within the massive villa, covering about 250 acres, much of which remains unexcavated. During the later years of his reign, Hadrian governed the empire from this magnificent home in Tivoli.
