  • A huge site, calm and interesting to rest a few walls and arches of a huge racetrack certainly restored and a mausoleum whose interior walls have preserved colorful frescoes. The site is open to the public and it is free

  • What a villa, the size of this place is over the top. Hiking the grounds and trying to visualize the villa in the roman times was breathtaking. A lot of the information panels are sunburned so you wil...  more »
  • Magnificent space: Villa and circus of the Emperor Massenzio and mausoleum of Romulus, along with historical and extraordinary Via Appia Antica. Villa romana dating back to the beginning of century IV d.C., his circus is the best preserved of the imperial city. The complex also houses the mausoleum of Romulus, son of the emperor. A visit interesting and recommended... The entrance is completely free.

  • Lovely ancient Roman villa. Perfect gardens for a picnic. Not busy and quite romantic surroundings.
  • Sumptuous imperial villa of the early fourth century. intended effect of Emperor Maxentius on the site of a former villa of earlier era. From the grandiose complex survive few remnants and very few residential wing, on top of the Hill. Notable however the circus for travel with horses, huge and almost completely preserved, and the tomb of Valerius Romulus, son of Maxentius. The monumental entrance towers circus, the entire perimeter and the wall of the central spine. The mausoleum of Romulus, which was stripped over the centuries to make construction material, stands at the center of an area outlined for the base told and retains only, which can be accessed.

  • I fear that, unfortunately, the Palace will never be visited. The circus and the mausoleum surrounded by greenery are of great impact and relaxation. Free admission.

  • 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.
