The Villa of the Quintili, finally open to the public: a clear, handy guide to the discovery of one of the masterpieces of ancient Rome.

In the major renewal works of the Appian Way, which have made it possible to reveal long segments of the ancient pavement and to restore several mausoleums along the sides of the road, one of the most significant developments is the opening of the Villa of the Quintili, the largest in this Roman suburb, and constructed starting in the first half of the 2nd century AD. The guide, with clear, thorough texts and fine illustrations, accompanies the reader in the discovery of the site, and documents recent excavations. Interpretation and historical reconstruction of the edifice, information on the rooms and their functions, the works conserved in the Antiquarium, notes on the building techniques and the landscape, plans, elevations and views: an indispensable resource for tourists and archaeology lovers exploring the Appian Way.
