Velletri is renowned as one of the main centres for wine production in the Latium.

istor
The "Athena of Velletri", found in a villa near the town.
The origins of Velletri (ancient Velitrae) are uncertain. A settlement existed on the site from pre-historic times. In 494 BC, while in danger due to Volscian pressure, the city was garrisoned with colonist soldiers by the Romans; Rome was mainly interested in stopping Volscian expansion in Latium. Subsequently, after the First Latin War in the 338 BC, Velitrae was deprived of its city walls as Rome achieved sovereignty over its territory.

During the Roman period, patricians built several villas in it. The city had also several temples and an amphitheatre.
The family ("gens") Octavia, to which the first Roman Emperor Augustus belonged, came from Velitrae, and the future emperor spent his youth there.

Velletri began to decline after it was sacked by Alaric the Goth in 410 CE. In the 5th century it was the seat of a bishopric and in the following century it became an imperial city after the Byzantine reconquest of Italy.

In the Middle Ages it started a difficult recovery, culminating in the 12th century with its declaration as a free commune. In the 14th and in the first half of the 15th century Velletri fought against the commune of Rome and the barons of Lazio, and later became part of the Papal States.

The first pawnshop in the world was opened in Velletri in the 15th century.

In the War of the Austrian Succession, troops of the Spanish-Nepolitan Bourbons won the Battle of Velletri (1744), fought against Austrian Habsburgs in Velletri and its surroundings.

After the French Revolution, Velletri rebelled and it was proclaimed a Republic. Later it changed sides and 900 of its citizens resisted in Castelgandolfo the siege by Joachim Murat. The Republic lasted till 1814.

It was briefly revamped in cojunction with the revolutionary Roman Republic of 1849. At that time Garibaldi won at Velletri a battle with the Bourbon Neapolitan forces, but the victory was short-lived as the Roman Republic was soon afterwards overwhelmed by the French, Velletri being also engulfed.

In 1862, the Rome-Velletri Railroad (Ferrovia Roma-Velletri ) was opened for service.

Between 2 September 1943, and 2 June 1944, Velletri was heavily bombed by the Allied Powers. Many monuments were destroyed and many people died.
