  • Finally usable thanks to virtual realization that recreated the splendid fresco of the painted garden of Livia at Prima porta along the Flaminia, home of her discovery in 1863. From the environment in the villa, was detached in the 1950s from home, today admirable at the National Roman Museum in Palazzo Massimo. The villa also referred to as "ad Gallinas Albas" because it would be the site of the miracle of the "white hen" apparition-the wife of Augustus-of an Eagle that he drops on her lap a hen of unusual candor with a laurel branch in its beak. On the advice of the haruspices, the hen and her offspring were lovingly grown and the branch was planted in the villa; Since then the Laurel became a universal symbol of success (see for example the term "graduate"). The legendary Laurel Garden was probably hosted porticoed terrace of the imperial residence. Certainly our visit allowed us to walk around inside one of the most extraordinary residences of ancient Rome; you visit a series of halls, rooms and hallways that alternate with courtyards, gardens and open spaces in which it is not difficult to imagine how the ancient love spend their days relaxing, luxury, pomp and so dear otium, not leaving, among the most popular areas of the villa, the vast and maintained complex. Easily accessible by car from the ring road, connected with railways North Rome Prima porta stop station

  • Given that we were the only visitors in a scintillating day settembrina romana, one wonders then what features should have an Italian archaeological site to be exploited and offered to a global audience of visitors history of Rome ... The place, in fact poorly marked and even little protected, is absolutely notable, the floors of the rooms of Livia and Augustus we speak for a remote age and convey emotions belle, precious feelings as this lonely place and lost than traditional Roman itineraries. Don't give up!

  • Great place but hard to find. We took advantage of another notifier directions. When we got to the gate was closed. Pressed the doorbell and was let into the service door closed after us.. So it is true, as others write that they probably do not want visits.

  • Nice place to visit.
  • An archaeological unconsidered and little visited. A gorgeous mansion, beautifully decorated with mosaics and frescoes, located on a hill outcrop that dominates a wide panorama of mountains and hills. The same view that any ancient Roman could enjoy leaving the city to the North. A visit not to be missed, preferably on a sunny day. Incredibly admission is free.

  • What about! We Romans have become used to these wonders. The villa of Livia, wife of the Emperor Augustus. Little-known site in Via della Giustiniana. To visit possibly with guide.

  • Archaeological site well maintained, guide prepared and interesting visit. The site should be embraced in the territory, though off hand the villa is beautiful. Here you won't find the famous floral fresco dining-room of the Villa, which is preserved at Palazzo Massimo alle Terme.
