This villa, the largest in the Roman suburbs, belonged to two brothers from the Roman senatorial family of the Quintili, consuls in AD 151. In AD 182, Emperor Commodus had the brothers put to death in order to confiscate their properties. The villa...more
I have to admit, it was exhausting to get here, but I'm glad I persisted and made it. It's a way to get out in the open and visit a well preserved Villa that is simply huge.
After visiting some of other sites along the...More
There is so much to see here, and a lot of it has been very well preserved. The area is huge, the setting is beautiful, and the cost is inexpensive. Plan for at least one hour, but two or three hours would be better.
On this First Sunday on June, we took a trip to enjoy this museum near famous Roman road Via Appia Antica . It is easy to get by metro and bus from any place in Rome. It was built by Quintilius brothers, during Hadrian time....More
To set the background - the Appian Way, in general, is a fabulous site to visit. Aside from the natural and man made beauty and the historical interest of the road itself, it is studded, all the way along, by varied historical sites to visit....More

Enter from Via Appia Nuova 1092. Budget at least 1.5 hours or 2 if you would like to include Santa Maria Nova and a quick glimpse of Via Appia Antica (which I recommend since you will likely not go back there during your trip and it's very worth the walk). I would walk to S. Maria Nova from the Villa, then walk along Via Appia Antica to the Quintili's Nimfeo and Orazi/Curiazi tombs, then back the same way. All of these spots are marked on google maps.
