Several archeological sites, medieval abbeys, a beautiful landscape with two volcanic lakes and a great offer of certified wine and food specialities…
The ancient Appian Way is one of the oldest roads still in use today, it dates back to the year 312 BC and it was extremely advanced for the time, so well done that it still resists more than 2000 years later and still deserves the nickname of “queen of the roads” (Regina Viarum).
Seriously threatened by decadence, abandon and – in recent decades – speculation, it was partially saved from obliteration by the denunciation of the journalist Antonio Cederna whom we owe the creation of the “protected area” around the road starting from 1988. Now the Park of the Appian Way is an oasis surrounded by the modern city and full of interest for archeological, historical and naturalistic reasons. There is so much to explore, from catacombs to Roman villas and Christian sanctuaries and you can easily spend a whole day there (but this venue is so close to the centre of Rome that even an half day tour is possible). Decide your mean of transportation: by bike, on horseback, on your feet for an urban trekking or by van and let’s go!
