  • A little gem tucked away and little known compared to the most popular places in Rome. Treat yourself to a pleasant walk in the Green between the ancient ruins of the villa. To keep an eye on the website for in summer concerts and visits often very striking at night.

  • In all the various descriptions of the Villa of the quintilii you will find phrases that indicate how to for family Quintili before, for the Emperor Commodus then ... (Yes, Commodus, just what the movie Gladiator:D) This villa has been a refuge away from frastuno and from the clamor of the city ... well, today is certainly not downtown, but it's still in Rome, with the main entrance on one of the busiest streets of the eternal city. And 1800 years ago, talking about one of the largest Empires in history 5 miles should not then be so much!!! Instead it's true!!! With a walk in Villa dei Quintili you depart from time bustle and clamor. You enter a sort of alternate time space, walking among ruins, walls, mosaics, a route which would be better done with a guide, but it is pleasant even in the wild. The ticket costs only 6 euros, children stay free, but every first Sunday of the month admission is free for everyone. It may seem out of the way, but is also easily accessible by public transport such as bus 664 from Largo dei Colli Albani, the complex was restored in 2004 and it is to be hoped that his vaolorizzazione continues to improve!

  • I ended up visiting this very large archaeological site almost by chance. I thought would have been a quick visit of some undistinguished piles of rocks but it turned out to be a fantastic experience....  more »

  • If you have some time to kill between flights in Ciampino, this could make an excellent excursion from the airport - weather permitting. My 5-hour layover went like a breeze on a beautiful warm December day, with a lovely hike from the airport to the Villa through the magnificent Old Appian Way, which passes right next to the terminal. Walking like a true Roman through this ancient road, free of vehicles for the most part, you will reach the Villa in about an hour or so. The Villa itself leaves a lot to the imagination, but it's definitely worth a visit if you are in the area, if only to get a glimpse of it's past grandeur.
  • A very impressive place, especially at certain times of the day (like at dusk) and perfect for a nice walk. In continuous modernization and recently the archaeologists of the Superintendent they found and determined that the circus was present beside the villa of the Emperor Commodus. They even opened an entrance on via Appia Pignatelli, the corner of Appia Vecchia. The only down fall is having a busy street as the Appia Nuova.

  • Lovely spot between the via Appia and the via Appia. Excellently preserved mosaic floors, some columns thermal environments of the villa. Recommend the tour to accompany you for the entire journey to reconstruct the history of the place.

  • Enter the Nymphaeum is already worth a visit. From unparalleled place seen from the gates on the Appia Antica to stroll on the remains of the splendour of the villa. Centuries of history under your feet and in your eyes. An enchantment.
