Tivoli is a town and comune in Lazio, central Italy, about 30 kilometres east-north-east of Rome, at the falls of the Aniene river where it issues from the Sabine hills. The town offers a wide view over the Roman Campagna. It’s quarries produce travertine, a particular white calcium-carbonate rock used in building most Roman monuments. The water powerof the falls supplies some of the electricity that lights Roma. The slopes of the neighbouring hills are covered with olives, vineyardsand gardens; the most important local industry is the manufacture of paper.

In 1835 Pope Gregory XVI added the Villa Gregoriana, a villa complex pivoting around the Aniene’s falls. The “Great Waterfall” was created through a tunnel in the Monte Catillo, to give an outlet to the waters of the Aniene sufficient to preserve the city from inundations like the devastating flood of 1826.

In 1944, Tivoli suffered heavy damage under an Allied bombing, which destroyed the Jesuit Church of Jesus. Wikipedia
