The villa was a retreat for the Roman Emperor Hadrian (76 - 138) in the early 2nd century.  During the later years of his reign, he governed the empire from the villa.  After Hadrian, the villa was used by various successors.  During the decline of the Roman Empire the Villa fell into disuse and was partially destroyed.  In the 16th century Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este had much of the marble and statues in Hadrian's Villa removed to decorate his own Villa d'Este located nearby.  Hadrian's Villa was a complex of over 30 buildings, covering an area of at least 1 square kilometer.  The complex included palaces, baths, theatres, temples, libraries, state rooms and living quarters for courtiers, praetorians and slaves.  The Villa reflects different architectural styles, mostly Greek and Egyptian.  Much of the complex has not been excavated.

The Hadrian's Villa Digital Project by the University of Virginia is well worth your time.
