  • On a warm Sunday in June we made this wonderful archaeological visit. Thanks to the skill of our guide (Max Del Moro: thank you!!) we relived the history and intrigue and of this great Roman matron, wife of Augustus who had his sub-urban villa here. A villa of magnificence worthy of an empress, the excavations have highlighted the immense perimeters of this residence that had numerous rooms, both private and for the guests whose beautiful mosaics, the polychrome marble floors and the frescoes that adorned it (very similar to those of Pompeians). There was no shortage of private baths, the peristyle with bath and colonnade (these unfortunately to imagine more than to see!), There is also a fully frescoed underground room (frescoes now at Palazzo Massimo) that was their conservatory. Very nice also the laurel where there were many laurel plants that legend tells adored the laurel wreaths of the great Roman commanders. In short, friends a truly magnificent place, out of time, that makes you relive the splendourofs of the Roman Empire, all just outside the Annular Rally of Rome: to visit absolutely.

  • From the paintings and mosaics we understand the past beauty of this villa, of which today unfortunately there is very little left. At the entrance there is also a small museum, with some finds. I recommend the guided tour, as the explanatory signs are not exhaustive. On the web it is not very clear the times and opening days, it is always worth making a phone call before visiting it. Other things could be improved, for example there are no road signs that clearly indicate where the entrance is and the navigator takes you elsewhere. We should invest more in our cultural heritage. instead, as is often the case, it is forgotten.

  • Was to be opened on 13 October for the days of the FAI was closed. We were very disappointed.

  • Beautiful as a park, the remains of the villa with the colorful frescoes and mosaics are very unique, interesting the antiquarium. Well maintained, within the large park of Veio, it really is a place where you breathe good air and history.

  • Despite the scarcity of inventories what fascinates is the feeling of being immersed in the history of the world. Here you sleep and the Augustemperor Octavian lived in this room. Unfortunately, what is left is not much apart from the wonderful mosaics of the floors

  • The Villa of Livia at Prima Porta is a beautiful archaeology area, well kept and comfortable to reach as it is on the Via Flaminia SS3 a few steps from the cemetery of Prima Porta. At the entrance of the area there is a Pyolo museum with some finds found in the excavation area but the visit should be completed absolutely with the visit to the National Roman Museum exactly "Palazzo Massimo alle Terme" where on the second floor are kept the Frescoes of the underground nymphaeum of the Villa of Livia "ad Gallinas Albas", The ORIGINALS!!! The visit to the Villa of Livia is also free!
