  • The villa dei Quintili was the largest Roman suburbs. The State bought it in 1985 from Torlonia. The site, known as "Statuesque", for the wealth of works of art, is located in the fifth mile of the Appian way, where Romans met a sacred area related to legendary facts: three tombs attributed already by the historian Livius to Orazi e Curiazi that in the time of king Tullus Hostilius faced here in fighting that earned him in Rome supremacy over Alba Longa and Lazio. Only in 1828 by the discovery of items imprinted with the name of Sextus Quintilius Valerius Maximus Condiano and sixth Fiver has identified the owners, remember literary sources for culture, military prowess, wealth. The two Quintili were consuls in 151 a.d. during the reign of the emperors Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius. The Emperor Commodus in 182 a.d. killed them on charges of having conspired, against him and confiscated the riches including the villa where he will reside far from the hubbub of the city. He remained Imperial property until 211 sec. d.c. The first excavations took place since 1775 when Pope Pius VI the promoted to enrich the Museo Pio-Clementino. By 1797 the villa's history is linked to the Torlonia family who since 1828 gave start systematic excavations to find artworks of the family meant to adorn the palaces and then forms the Museo Torlonia. The visitable area extends from Via Appia Nuova to via Appia Antica, where was the original entrance; a big garden introduced residential villa with a paved square and heated rooms and decorated with precious marbles where held banquets and feasts. The most impressive structures belong to the spa industry dominated by the large halls of the Caldarium and the frigidarium, connected by an unbroken series of smaller rooms heated and with baths for rituals of Roman bath in which the Emperor Commodus did an exaggerated use. The frigidarium has a large central space with two basins for cold water to the sides. Extremely interesting water supply system from the main aqueduct supplied water to the various rooms of the villa through a system of ducts and tanks and heating systems both thermal and residential sector, of which have been preserved testimonies along walls and under floors. At the entrance there is a Museum displaying precious sculptures from excavations carried out in the early decades of the ' 900.

  • A rare tourist visit to the attractions, but in vain. There are no tourists, and can be infinitely long regarded the ruins of nekoda former greatness and wealth. All you can touch, consider in detail, make photos, enjoy the clean air and the scent of herbs. And if you bring food and drinks, you can arrange a small picnic)))

  • Villa Quintili is a beautiful archaeological site situated between the via Appia Nuova and the fifth Mile of the Appia Antica. From Via Appia Nuova # 1092 visiting the remains of an ancient Roman villa built in 2 sec. a.d. by the noble family of Quintiles and belonged also to the later Emperor Commodus. In this magnificent place to admire: a small Museum (the statue of Aphrodite Braschi), the Basis Villae, Frigidarium, Caldarium, Tepidarium, the large tank. Spettecolare the walk from the entrance of the villa, through the ditch of the Statuary (the torrential rivers which gives its name to the adjacent district), leads to the Appia Antica, in a poetic journey into the ancient history of Rome between the Green, the birds and the morning breeze. Eye to the estate of Santa Maria Nova, a medieval tenement handled in the past by Olivetan monks. The ticket costs 6 euros (free for children) and also includes entry to the mausoleum of Cecilia Metella and the baths of Caracalla. Recommended.

  • 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.
