The archaeological area of Settecamini, discovered in the 1950s, is located halfway between Rome and Tivoli, at the intersection of the eighth mile of via Tiburtina and the road that led from the Aniene river to Etruria and Sabina.
The site consists of two main excavation areas separated by an urbanized area. In the western one there is a well-preserved paving of the ancient via Tiburtina and the remains of a post station from the 1st century BC, including floor mosaics. Not far away, now buried, the ruins of the early Christian church of Santa Sinforosa.
The eastern archaeological area has instead returned a cross-section of the suburbs of Rome in the imperial age. Along the road at the edge of which various tombs are visible, part of the walls that bordered private properties and the remains of an inn have been found.
The area, as evidenced by the excavations, was inhabited until the fifth century AD.
