  • With my partner, through an acquaintance, we learned of the opening of this Villa that was then made visitable, we went there during a past weekend, on a Saturday morning. Since we see it practically every day from the terrace of our house, we thought it was time to live it live and immerse ourselves in its history! So we went to the entrance to the first morning visit time and found how many other people were already present in anticipation! Also because it was organized a nice visit with a guide from the Touring club Italy and it was really a welcome surprise the excellent organization. To find out more opening dates available just visit the relevant website of the Touring club Italy. You walk along a long avenue framed by both sides, by beautiful and very high cypress trees that welcome us, then you walk in the green breathing air rich in history and antiquity. Of course, the remains are unfortunately few because they have been destroyed over the years, but they are a worthy testimony to what has been a great past. The walkable area is very large, it is second after the beautiful Villa dei Quintinle that we visited a few years ago, there are olive trees, flowers and plants that as the guide explained to us, were not put there at random but there was a precise study. Some plants in fact have a specific task that is to hold the soil with their roots to avoid landslides. The site should of course be kept under control and maintained, so funds should be allocated but it is also well known that here in Italy the culture and history of which our beautiful country abounds, alas are at the last step on the scale of things to take into account and in fact we are surrounded by ignorant people. I highly recommend visiting it, it is located within the Ancient Appia and is archaeological heritage of Rome. You can reach it by car but there is little parking, otherwise walking there is a sidewalk on which it is not easy to walk given the presence of thick bushes but with a little attention you will arrive without problems. We opted for this second choice having it, as written earlier, practically under the house! Nice experience indeed.

  • It's a strange place, actually, we don't quite understand, there are too many old things here, some broken walls, to the next generation to remember, but for me, this will be less interesting than the city center.

  • We are inside the Parco dell'appia Antica, in this space already immense archaeological patrimony of the capital. Before our eyes, the testimonies of a huge complex worth raising to the honors. The profile of what remains, evident when it comes to its presence, creates further amazement if we move away towards the park of the aqueducts, to have an overall view of the real dimensions, which really leave us astonished. After that of the quintiles, the Villa of the Seven downs, whose property is attributed to Settimio Basso, powerful prefect of Rome, is the largest in the area at the gates of the Urbe, the Roman countryside, whose suggestive views, time has relentlessly changed. Imagine the villa, monumental, so large as to be considered, rightly, a city in its own right, with large halls of representation, places of leisure and recreation, thermal facilities, a semicircular belvedere, luxurious bedrooms and banquet, with views on large Courtyards and gardens surrounded by shady arcades. In short, those who preceded us, already knew how to enjoy his time.

  • The villa of Settimio Basso, very funny the alteration Roman in seven basses, would be a marvel. Its occasional opening and the big limits placed to the practicability by safety reasons, make it in effect the much less enjoyment. Even with the guidance of the Superintendency see the mosaics was not possible and the description of the artifacts a hundred meters away is quite frustrating

  • Compared to a few years ago when I went there and found everything closed and ruined the situation is much improved. The Villa of the seven basses is now part of the Parco Dell'appia Antica is managed with care and visitable are in particular events, such as the days of heritage. Some private associations also organise special visits. The villa is located in Via Tuscolana 1700. You can reach the metro station Anagnina in five minutes walk along the busy tuscolana, direction towards the center holding the left side. Unfortunately the sidewalk is not maintained, so many weeds, but you can do. The remains of the ancient imperial Villa are currently visible only from the outside, but the tour of the park is worth it. Interesting information about the history of the area and the other neighboring sites to visit.

  • There is a general strategic plan for research, sight-seeing and maintenance of the place. Plans to be exhibited publicly. They also served 600 million.

  • Lovely site! It is only accessed by reservation or pre special days. Since the site is still in the process of digging. When it will be open to the public will be a wonderful place like the many sites of the archaeological Park Appia Antica!! So we wait!!!
