The finest pieces of the collection are the famous Ulisse head and the spectacular hellenistic marble groups representing some Odyssey passages, SCYLLA group (Scilla assault on the hero’s ship), POLIFEMO group (Polifemo blinding), Palladio and Ganymede.The works were realized by famous Rhodes artists who are also the Lacoonte sculptors.

The Villa was built by Emperor Tiberius (1st century AD) to relax himself together with his court and enjoy some rest far from Rome.
