At the bookshop of the Villa dei Quintili, which is attached to the Antiquarium and the ticket office, visitors can find an illustrated guide of the complex’s history and archaeological digs, amongst the many guides on the city’s archaeological and artistic heritage.
Surrounded by lush natural beauty, which has served as inspiration for countless artists, Villa dei Quintili is the largest and most opulent residence of the Roman suburbs. It is located between the Appian Way and the Appia Nuova road. The imposing complex, which includes servant quarters and private baths, owes its name to its first owners, the brothers Sextus Quintilius Condianus and Sextus Quintilius Valerius Maximus, consuls in 151 AD. The brothers were prominent figures of the time and were assassinated on the orders of the emperor Commodus who then took possession of the villa, and lived in it for many years. The Villa came under national ownership in 1986.
