City: Rome

Tomb of Cecilia Metella is located at Via Appia Antica 161, imposing monument just after the Circus of Maxentius. A €6 ticket gives admission to the tomb, to Villa dei Quintili and to the Baths of Caracalla. The mausoleum of Cecilia Metella, who died in 69 BC, is the best preserved monument on the Appian Way and dominates the surroundings. In the middle ages it was transformed into a fortress and battlements were added. At that time there was considerable competition for ownership because of its strategic location.
