The villa is the most impressive building of the agro romano and was the property of an aristocratic family, widely known and bushels had assumed important posts during the reigns of Antoninus Pius and Mar'Aurelio. The Quintili brothers owned this villa great and many beautiful and rich furnishings and of great artistic value. Convenient accused them of treason, had them kill and took possession of this fantastic villa which now we can admire its impressive ruins. The knowledge of this structure is a duty, taking advantage of a prolonged stay in Rome. The entrance is cumulative with that at the baths of Caracalla.show original

Extends between the current via Appia antica, the 6th mile and via Appia Nuova where you enter. Interesting historically, archaeologically and like engineering and architecture. Properties of the Quintili brothers, Roman consuls who were charged with treason by the Emperor Commodus and so everything passed among his possessions. It's a great centralization of manors, with the possibility to admire fine floors, walls that for 2,000 years manifested grandeur, I believe that the ceilings are 12 or 13 metres high, even lime deposit for building repairs or new construction. There are constructions such as tanks and many excavations in progress. Then from the center of the villa you can gaze out and imagine the scenery. Upon exiting a small but interesting statuary.

This is instead of the remains of two rich brothers, Sixth Quintiliano Condiano and Sixth Quintilian Valeriano maximum. This sumptuous abode ingolosì the Emperor Commodus in 182 ad killed the Quintiles to appropriate it, along with the other riches of the unfortunate consuls. Considering the size of the villa (easilly 24 hectares) it is recommended to take several precautions in making the visit. Namely: 1) wear a detailed plan which must include five different nuclei (the monumental nymphaeum, on grounds including the Hippodrome, the stadium, the residential thermal environments, accompanied by great service areas. All these areas must include a description of the marbles, architectural decorations and mosaics where traceable; 2) sometimes refer to the Guidebook for setups that do not fail; 3) read the educational panels where present. According to this schema, the visit will become a real pleasure. Once access was gained to the Villa on the Appian way, but today the main entrance (with its Antiquarium which houses valuable statues and artifacts) is on the Appia Nuova, which implies that we should take a small hill (a mound formed by an ancient pile of lava) to get to the ruins.show original
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.
