  • Unfortunately there is very little of this villa belonged to the Roman writer (who did the scientific or the classic we came across far more times); though must have been large. It's not well signposted, sometimes you come across it by chance.

  • Corner of ancient Rome dipped in the green of the pine forest. Not easy to get to, beautiful walk or bike needed. Much space available, ideal for a picnic with children. Too bad there are no more accurate descriptions of what you can see, there is much to say and, when visiting, a lot to learn. Advice to those who visit to read up to well in advance.

  • Regardless of the information provided by the official website of the Superintendent, we had easy access to the fenced, fully unattended and remains poorly of the villa of Pliny the younger, at la pineta di Ostia. Much more difficult to find without outside help (in our case a friend knew points) to no helpful directions the via della villa.

  • Have by luck discovered this place during walk. Was really surprised to find part of history on such abandoned and not really maintained place. On the other hand if you would like to feel like discoverer with not much people around this is exactly right target for you. There are tables with basic description and simple seating is also available. Water was not working at time of my visit so bring your own. I would recommend to visit also the park/forest around with multiple sand paths, closed roads and bit of shadow in the sunny hot days. With little bit of luck you can see also some animals. There is no direct access by car so visiting this place means short or longer walk (depending on where you park). You can also walk from Castel Fusano station, this is longer but still nice walk. Putting one star less because poor maintenance, missing information and locked gates (of course you are expected to walk around or use one of missing pieces in the fence).
  • It's a nice place and it a shame that it's not supposed to be open to the public, there's the usual holes in the fence, but it would be nice to pay a bit for the up keep.
  • Well off the beaten track
  • Beautiful as ever
  • Fantastic place and suggestive pity that it is poorly maintained...
