History and description
The emperor’s residence was 300 meters long. In addition to the living quarters for himself and his servants, it included a bathing complex and a private harbor.
The complex had a circular pool. This was connected to other pools located outside the palace, which were used for irrigation.
The emperor’s dining room is supposed to have been in the center of a square bath. Tiberius left the villa in the year 26, after nearly having died in a landslide. He moved to the island of Capri.
