The Civita Giuliana is located in the northern suburbium of Pompeii, about 700 meters from the city walls. Thus far the site has produced archaeological evidence of suburban villas in Pompeii's hinterland. Early twentieth-century excavations were carried out here, only to be published in 1994. Clandestine looting at the site brought about a cooperative effort to resume excavations in the interests of heritage protection in 2017.

Archaeological fieldwork since 2017 has been able to bring important finds to light, including organic objects (e.g., furnishings) that were encased in a pyroclastic flow, thus allowing excavators to make casts of the impressions left by the processes of decay. Evidence for livestock in a stable context was discovered, and in 2021 it was announced that an ornate chariot without comparison in Roman Italy had been found. In November 2021, heritage officials announced the discovery and documentation of a segment of the pars rustica that has been interpreted as the domestic quarters for household workers, perhaps enslaved persons, of the estate.
