It was the 2nd stop using the ticket from The Baths of Caracalla. Just up the road from the catacombs. Walk the Via Appian Antics after your visit for some wonderful sights.

The tomb of Cecilia Metella is an impressive building on the Appian way to see from the road. We paid to visit the interior but found it had nothing worth the price of admission. There were some statues and temporary exhibits to see but nothing...More

This large mausoleum is quite impressive. A very large building and some statues can be seen. However the entrance price is 8€, it s expensive

Cecilia's tomb is interesting, if you have a guidebook with you to explain everything, otherwise it's just another site with ruins. There's not much in the way of exclamations, but if you're on the Appian Way definitely stop by.

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!
