Interesting to see. Is a pity that is not more presented with some 3 D pictures how villa look like at that time.

Too bad it's so hard to find, no road signs if you are coming from Rome on the Flaminia. At the end, you'll see few nice mosaics, ruins, etc. No worth the trip from Rome.

The first thing to say is that they don't want you to find it. There are next to no signs or indications where it is. Leaving Prima Porta railway station towards the SS2 Bis there is a small one way bit then go up the hill about 150yds and bear right, immediately in front of you is a small brown sign overgrown with shrubbery that suggests the target may be the way you are now heading go up the hill about 200-300 yds and there is an open gate with a concrete path, go in and walk up to a football pitch. Turn round 180 degrees and there is the gate open Thurs and Friday 0930 -1330. Go in and you will come to a single storey building that houses a small exhibition of bits and bobs. Very large dog sits at the door feigning sleep, but with one eye on the twelve or so cats on the grass in front of him ! The villa proper is behind over the hill (Still no signs to speak of). It must have been spectacular in its day and the outline and some mosaics are still there (Other artefacts are in the Rome Museums) The pots in the garden are a little odd. It took me an hour and a half from Flaminia Railway station to the villa and back to Flaminia with a coffee and cornet thrown in at Prima Porta, so its not out of the way to do. There is car parking on the road outside.…
