Villa di Domiziano

A bridge to the past

Domitian's villa occupies the beautiful peninsula stretching on lake Paola. 

The site, still largely unexcavated, is encompassed within a 46-hectare integral reserve.

The villa of the imperial period partly re-used the structures of a former late-republican villa. It features an imposing front along the lake shore, with a long pier - whose realisation required extensive works - only interrupted by two exedras by the thermal-bathing area. This area consisted of the above mentioned exedras and of a series of adjoining rooms, connected by two corridors; the classic tripartition calidarium-tepidarium-frigidarium characterised the space, which also included a large gymnasium.
