Villa dei Quintili, Rome

#69 of 463 in Historic Sites in Rome
The Villa of the Quintilii is an ancient Roman villa beyond the fifth milestone along the Via Appia Antica just outside the traditional boundaries of Rome, Italy. It was built by the rich and cultured brothers Sextus Quintilius Valerius Maximus and Sextus Quintilius Condianus .The ruins of this villa suburbana are of such an extent that when they were first excavated, the site was called Roma Vecchia by the locals, as they occupied too great a ground, it seemed, to have been anything less than a town. The nucleus of the villa was constructed in the time of Hadrian. The villa included extensive thermae fed by its own aqueduct, and, what was even more unusual, a hippodrome, which dates to the fourth century, when the villa was Imperial property: the emperor Commodus coveted the villa strongly enough to put to death its owners in 182 and confiscate it for himself.In 1776 Gavin Hamilton, the entrepreneurial painter and purveyor of Roman antiquities, excavated some parts of the Villa of the Quintilii, still called "Roma Vecchia", and the sculptures he uncovered revealed the imperial nature of the site:

  • On the outskirts of Rome, the very nice information guy. Very quiet place and although it seems impossible without tourists, were alone in making the visit! Little or no explanation of what each thing. Visit discount with Roma Pass, €2,50 and includes the mausoleum of Cecilia Metella. The baths of Caracalla are no longer included in the same ticket! We have just learned that two months ago have changed everything.

  • Are the remains of this impressive villa in the Roman countryside and include both living quarters that the thermal baths, still visible parts of floors and marble. The entrance to the archaeological complex is on the Appia nuova and the tour long enough especially if it runs in full until you come on the Appia antica, where you can continue your walk in an environment equally impressive. Definitely a nice idea for an afternoon of mid season (in summer hot days to take into account that the visit is all under the Sun).

  • Get off at historic, aboard a bus route 118. It looks from the road more hills standing alone in the ruins. Through the Hall, such as Mini Museum once purchased tickets (get map) at the Office, in the Villa. Green Hills and blue sky, ruins still stand. And continue to wander out onto the old Appian way. Of this quiet Cobblestone Road. People are running in rental cycling good feeling here and there. Please take a look at and fewer tourists, tired of the Rome crowd. Shadow, so heat is required to blackout!

  • Important archaeological site but there should be some more organization especially in putting some indication or give a map for orientation within the wide archaeological area

  • The archaeological site of the villa dei Quintili extends from the Appia Nuova to via Appia Antica including Santa Maria Nova. Essential for a walk on the Appia Antica!

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
