The Villa of the Quintili was one of the most lavished and luxurious homes on the famous Via Appia (appia street) leading to Rome. Built around 100-200 A.D. this historical site was owned by the Quintili brothers, consuls of Marc Aurelius in 151 A.D. When Commodus came to power, it is speculated that he killed the brothers just so that he could get his hands on their property.
This, often understated site, has survived in an extremely well preserved state and it is more serene than most other roman attractions, leaving you to enjoy its history in peace and quiet.
Careful, it is closed on mondays!
