Just beyond the ancient gates of Rome, between Via Appia Antica and Via Appia Nuova, the Villa of the Quintili is ideal for a relaxing open-air stroll among the remains of a sumptuous private residence. Idyllically located in a Roman countryside which has provided inspiration for countless artists, the villa belonged in 151 A.D. to the brothers Sextus Quintilius Condianus Maximus and Sextus Quintilius Valerianus Maximus, who were both consuls. It then was taken over by the Emperor Commodus, who it is said had eyed the property, with its tranquil country setting and baths, for some time.
