Things to know about Appian Way
Known as the "queen of the long roads", the Appian Way ("Via Appia Antica" In Italian) is the most ancient and important road leading to Rome. It was built in 312BC for military purpose, and it has been progressively extended over the years until it reached the port city of Brindisi, in southeast Italy.
The stretch of the Appian Way closest to Rome is enclosed in a natural park, the "Parco Regionale dell'AppiaAntica" and is the ideal destination for an excursion through nature and archeological sites.
Sadly, visitors in Rome often miss this amazing sight because of its distance from the historic centre, but the Appian Way offer tons of spectacular sights of interest, such as the Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella, the Christian catacombs, the Villa dei Quintili and the Baths of Caracalla.
