  • The narrow roads that surround it are clogged by cars and dangerous, the days and times of visit very restrictive, poorly signposted and the park that surrounds it not exactly in perfect condition and yet its location on the high tuff spur of which one can see the marble headstone carved and beautiful commemorative structures already from the bottom makes this unique site. Inside a small building that is half the keeper's dwelling and half antiquarium of the few remnants into museums. The tour route is not signposted but going up the paving of the ancient road found one reaches near the villa, passing beside the enchanting laureto. Among the excavations include some beautiful mosaics and a few fragments of frescoes by extraordinary colors and excellent condition. Totally absent information panels. The highlight of the villa, the garden fresco in the triclinium, was detached and taken to the museo nazionale romano of palazzo Braschi, while in situ would can see a reproduction in the former placing although right now the Hall is closed due to injuries inflicted by the earthquake. In General a recommended visit, given also the gratuity of the site, to get away from the daily chaos of our city and honors and glories of the past from a privileged.

  • A fantastic Villa just a few kilometres from where I live, a piece of history that has given the world one of the most beautiful statues Agusto licorato.

  • The site, which would be very nice, it is not mentioned by any sign and you are inside an abandoned Park, where, proceeding blindly, you reach a small farmhouse, apparently desert. A character emerges from the inside and tells you that you can visit the Museum (a room attached to the hut) and continue along a dirt road. At the top of the hill there is a nice terrace with 64 pots with plants of Laurel and, alongside, the ruins of the villa, mostly barred by barricades. What a pity!

  • This was a most exciting and unexpected find on the outskirts of Rome. The curator gave us a wonderful background to the history (in Italian) and the archaeology. It is a wonderful mini Pompeii with hundreds of years of settlement caught in it's soil, all clearly visible in the cleverly layered dig with different centuries of floors exposed. The pieces of frescoes, simple to complicated tiled floors and the highlight of Livia's intact room of the original villa, several feet below current ground level, all set in magnificent park like grounds, led to a most satisfying and enlightening visit. I can't wait to see what further digs unveil. There are now regular hours for visiting. Take a picnic hamper in summer or a thermos in winter. You won't regret it.
  • about the house of livia The House of Livia, also known as Livia’s House or Livia’s Villa, was the home of the third wife of Augustus, the first emperor of the Roman Empire, and the mother of its second emperor, Tiberius. Powerful and formidable, Livia was an important figure of Ancient Rome, a status she managed to maintain even after Augustus’s death. It even became treasonous to speak against Livia. Robert Graves memorably portrayed the figure of Livia in his I Claudius series. Set on the Palatine Hill, Ancient Rome’s most desirable location, the House of Livia is currently being excavated by the Soprintendenza Archeologica di Roma and so is usually only accessible by prior appointment.
  • If you like history and art this is a place in Rome to visit! Have your camera!
