The Mausoleom of Cecilia Metella is from the 1st century BC. This was a monumental round tomb on the Appian Way for a Roman noblewoman who was related to Crassus. The structure on the outside is interesting - there is not much inside but it...More

If you have a Caracalla Ticket then it's worth it to take the 10 minutes to walk around the interior. The oldest part, the tomb is really just a big tower with a hole in the middle. The other parts were added later and they...More

When walking along the Appian Way, the Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella is easily admired from the outside. I only recommend stopping in if its free on your Roma pass or with your admission from another attraction, otherwise it's not worth the 6 euros per person....More

This is easily the most underwhelming place on my Rome Archeology card list but it was free with my card and a good place to start a walk on the Appia Antica. Assuming you can figure out how to get there on the bus!

Much of the travertine cladding is still in place after 2500 years. The main inscription is perfectly legible. Most of the structure is intact.

Our Roma Pass got us in free, or we would have felt it was not worth the cost. Only took about 15 minutes to walk around and see what was there. It is a good place to begin to walk back toward Rome along the...More

Fascinating arcaeological site which combines antiquity with the MIddle Ages. The round tomb of Caecilia Metella, who died in the first century B.C., is interesting only from the outside but the adjacent medieval residence is well worth a visit, as it houses a collection of...More
