This is a wonderful place to hike or walk - just beware of mud after the rains! Many locals here walk dogs, bike and run through the park, which is huge.

One of the unique things to do in Rome is to follow the Appian Way. It’s not so much the road itself that is an incredible site, instead what you’ll encounter along the route. With so many stops to make, it’s best to take advantage...More

The Appian Way is one of the most illegally inhabited archeological sites out there. In other words, much of what you see when you first get there has been gated off into illegal estates, which is so disappointing. Therefore a lot of what you hit...More

A place of relax and lots of activities to do. You can rent a bike to drive the ancient road in a fresh air. The smell of cedars, the voices of the birds and a quite - what can be better?

Wife, myself and eldest daughter had a wonderful morning walking the Appia Way - this is where Julius Caesar walked into Rome and the beautiful tree lined walk is well worth a few hours of your time. We loved it and will return.
