  • I was not going to stop in, but I did want to step up to the entry and at least peer in. Now, I had it in mind that there was a fee to enter, but at least for today, no. Do you need to walk around the...  more »
  • This splendid archaeological site along the Via Appia Antica, between the Basilica of San Sebastiano and the tomb of Cecilia Metella, offers in one fell swoop emotions, suggestion, landscape and the archaeological remains of three very important monuments with free admission. It seems incredible, but you can walk around without spending a euro on the estate that was the Emperor Maxentius, fallen into oblivion after the defeat by Constantine and the rise of Christian-Roman-era Pope. If you are lucky you can join guided tours which are also free. It starts from the Circus, maybe never used but which retain much of the plug, the triumphal arch, of carceres and perimeter walls, then you enter the mausoleum of Romulus, son of the emperor who died prematurely, Central plan building that was used as a model by Palladio for its Venetian Villas, and you can see the remains of the structures of the villa or the Imperial Palace. And then around there is still so much to see and experience. The area is accessible by buses from the underground Coliseum, St. John, Colli Albani.

  • the site is really nice as all the Appia Antica Park ... ... Although admission is free ... I would pay to avoid ... that operator at the entrance ask the mite ... but sorry do you charge 2 euros ... are accounted for as income ... while offering where does it go? ... Ok.. polemics on management ... you enter and what I am to visit ... the remains of the maghifico circus of Maxentius .... I recommend documented ... or smaller type Circus Maximus well anyway .... so a circus where they ran the chariot race ... go back you will find the tomb of Romulus ... the son of Maxentius died young, for the expectations placed on son Maxentius unbridgeable seen mourning for succession--the lineage of "CH" ... then you wonder ... But what's the name of the site.? 《 ... 》 VILLA of MAXENTIUS then the villa .... answer ... the Superintendence of cultural heritage does not have the funds ... the villa is inaccessible ... unsafe ... the remains not shored up, expects may have collapsed the last remains ... so we can say the former villa of Maxentius .... in the end, go and visit the "villa" which offers Roman landscape ... but ... continue on other sites ... on the appia ... Why go only for the villa will leave a bad taste in my mouth ... good walk on via appia ... I go to the mausoleum of Cecilia metella. , bove and the villa dei quintili ... I hope it's better.

  • The villa and the Park are beautiful and worth a walk. I reported three times to Google that the exact address is Via Appia Antica 153-00179 Rome and not the one shown above!

  • The place around the Villa is beautiful, too bad you cannot find ways to open this part of "Villa and circus of Maxentius". Good thing a few years ago was made available also the mausoleum of Valerius Romulus. The archaeological area is very large and well worth seeing more than once.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
