The mosaic floors in the Villa are very well restaurated and give a glimpse of the grandour that once must have prevailed here. It's not very large but on the other hand one of... read more

What you can see is interesting, and beautiful in the arrangements of the floors, unfortunately not much is left although excavation and restoration works are still underway and more could be unearthed. The structure of the house is clear, and together with the decorations of the floors provides glimpses about the social level of the owner. Interestingly the house was... More

You're going to be impressed. While Rome was noted for how well its builders dealt with fresh water and sewage for everyone, the elite had the best facilities and most refined practices at home. Sensible things like building so that rainwater was caught and saved influenced the overall design of homes. The house was not excavated until after 1885, so... More

As Roman villas go this one is not spectacular but nor is it expensive. If you are near by you might as well go.

Well, it was painstakingly reconstructed, but it is nothing special comparing to other roman remains around Italy. If you have the museum card it will be a nice short visit.

. . .but loved it from the moment we were welcomed by the attendant. We were alone in the building to wander at our pleasure and we spent a good half hour being amazed at this Roman building.

We see a lot of extreme homes of the wealthy on television each week but just what did it mean to be rich in Roman times? The remains of this home give us a small glimpse into such a lifestyle . Lots of rooms of good size with high ceilings that would have had light and simple furnishings but it... More

This partially excavated Roman home might have been used by someone in Caligula’s family, or just by some rich Roman. What remains are some of the ground floor rooms…most with almost intact mosaic floors. Amazingly you can walk on them, just as Romans did 19 centuries ago. Plan to give it around half an hour.

The amount that you get to walk through is very short, but the mosaics are impressive, and there is a remnant of a fresco on one of the walls. All in all it is an interesting look at ancient Roman life. It doesn't open until 11 fyi
