  • Too bad it's so hard to find, no road signs if you are coming from Rome on the Flaminia. At the end, you'll see few nice mosaics, ruins, etc. No worth the trip from Rome.  more »
  • The first thing to say is that they don't want you to find it. There are next to no signs or indications where it is. Leaving Prima Porta railway station towards the SS2 Bis there is a small one way b...  more »
  • 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 to mention, 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

  • Nice place to visit.
  • The site itself is unique and invalutabile for beauty and historical content. Four stars and not five are for management; not bad, but many passages are closed without any apparent explanation, the fresco of the garden was closed, few staff. However the Council visit, possibly in a third Sunday of the month in which for a few euros you can book that Wizard.

  • Site very well maintained and of great interest, in addition to exceptional historical relevance: Although most valuable pieces are kept in various museums of Rome, several frescoes and mosaics remain on site and is very easy to understand the plan of the building. Boardwalks and explanatory panels facilitate the visit. Very friendly staff. Lacking directions to the villa, whose access is through a public park.

  • The remains of the villa are located in a large park, you will find few tourists and admission is free. Absolutely recommended!
