Accessible Villa dei Quintili: a tour dedicated to wheelchair users

Two Roman consuls built Villa dei Quintili in the 2nd century AD, their names were Sextus Quintilius Condiano and his brother Sextus Quintilius Valerius Maximus. It covers more than 24 hectares.

In 182, after having sentenced the Quintili brothers of death for conspiracy, Emperor Commodus (“the Gladiator Emperor”) confiscated the villa. He then proceeded to embellish it with constructions, expanding it until the Villa dei Quintili became the largest and richest house in the suburbs. After that, he started fighting in the arena: Commodus was in fact the only Roman emperor to combat in the Colosseum.

Inside the Villa dei Quintili, the area known as the “Maritime Theatre”, proved to be an arena used for training, fighting and for the Emperor’s performances in front of a selected audience. And the master of the gladiators, Narcissus, was the Emperor’s personal trainer. He murdered Commodus in 192 in a bathroom that is still visible today along with other huge rooms. They still have intact walls and a breathtaking view, a green landscape with streams, slopes and plenty of water carried up by the two ancient aqueducts: Claudius and Anio Novus.
