  TIBUR - LoveToKnow Article on TIBUR
Tibur was a favorite place of resort in Roman times, and both Augustus and Maecenas had villas here, and possibly Horace also.
It did not, lowever, lose its independence, but became an ally of Rome, as is shown by an inscription, probably of the 2nd century B.C., in which it is recorded that the ambassadors of Tibur successfully cleared themselves before the Roman senate of a suspicion that they were acting contrary to their treaty with Rome.
Its prosperity during the imperial period was mainly due to the favor in which it stood as a summer resort.

 Tivoli - The origins
Another opinion, shared from various students, believes that the word Tivoli (Tibur and, perhaps, originally, Teibur) comes to the word Teba, that according to Varrone means hill.
Anyway about the word Tibur, there is a last hypothesis referring to the most characteristic element of the territory: its great fall.
According to this, Tibur means city near the jump of the water, linking to the Tiberis term, that is the Tevere, that it is exactly a water course.

 Via Tiburtina ran from Rome to Tibur   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Via Tiburtina ran from Rome to Tibur, probably diverging to the left from the Via Praenestina a little outside the Porta Esquilina of the Servian Walls and running to Porta Tiburtina (Porta S. Lorenzo) in the Aurelian Walls.
The road ran east-northeast to Tibur, 20 miles away, crossing the Anio River close to Rome and then running roughly parallel to it, but some distance away from it.
These are all later than Claudius and seem generally to have been responsible for the full length of the road, but sometimes only the Via Tiburtina or the Via Valeria is mentioned, indicating that there may have been different caretakers for different sections at some times.

 Tivoli-Tibur   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In ancient Roman times, Tibur, present-day Tivoli, was already a favorite summer resort as well as a place of worship of local divinities.
After various adventures (including capture by the brothers Tiburtus, who gave the town its name) it became a Roman town, and by the first century BC anyone who was anyone had a sumptuous summer villa there.
The attractions were the climate of the Sabine foothills and the waters, perhaps not healing as was claimed, but certainly cool, of the Anio River (later called the Aniene), which swept around three sides of the town before descending to join the Tibur.

After the early destruction of Alba it would seem as if Praeneste and Tibur were, next to Rome, the largest and most influential Latin cities, one dominating the Praenestine and the other the Tiburtine hills as Alba had dominated the slopes of the Alban mount.
Like Tibur (Tivoli) she was an advance post toward the land of the enemy—the Aequi.

 Chapter State Of Rome From The Twelfth Century. of History of The Decline And Fall of The Roman Empire by Gibbon
The captives, in their shirts, with a rope round their necks, solicited their pardon: the fortifications, and even the buildings, of the rival cities, were demolished, and the inhabitants were scattered in the adjacent villages.
It was thus that the seats of the cardinal bishops, Porto, Ostia, Albanum, Tusculum, Præneste, and Tibur or Tivoli, were successively overthrown by the ferocious hostility of the Romans.
Porto and Ostia, the two keys of the Tyber, are still vacant and desolate: the marshy and unwholesome banks are peopled with herds of buffaloes, and the river is lost to every purpose of navigation and trade.
