  • 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!
  • Is part of the Roman Forum, and I'll put the photos you will see, if you enter the Forum. ... It is immense. But I see you don't like history, don't go! Tip: A very cool thing for you that want to know the history, and a recorder with information, telling the history of the site. You pay and get at the entrance if you want!
