One of the most underwhelming attractions in Brindisi. You've probably seen hundreds of such columns all over the ex Roman Empire territories.
Allegedly they marked the end of the Via Appia Antica road from Rome.
They're located in old town, short walk after the Duomo Square with its Cathedral, before the staircase leading down to Lungomare sea side promenade.
One column remained intact, while the other collapsed and was relocated in Lecce. Just a pass by and quick photo attraction.

At the top of the monumental stairway are a column and the remains of a second (now erected in Lecce) which mark the beginning or the end (depending on the direction of your journey) of the Via Appia which leads from Brindisi to Rome. At the top of the flight of stairs to the left a marble plaque commemorates the site of the death of Vergil (Virgil), the Augustan poet who penned the Aeneid. If you walk down the flight of steps to the water and turn to the left you will find an unpretentious sign announcing La Raccolta Archeologica Salvatore Faldetta, a hum-dinger of a museum with free entry, clean bathrooms, and an amazing collection of pottery and a selection of sculpture in stone and terracotta from the Indian subcontinent! There is an elevator, but use the spiral staircase for another surprise--a reproduction of Rome's Column of Trajan, with the scenes labeled, all in Italian, but nevertheless affording a view of the Column that one can not expect to get in Rome itself.

Italy is a tourist's heaven: nature, history, art, music, people, food...
We only spent one day in Brindisi and were very sorry. It's at least a month you need to stay there, maybe even a lifetime.
The columns are massive and really send your thoughts back to the Romans. The port offers a wonderful view from up here; we took the stairs towards the port and then shot some amazing photos of the columns from sea level; we then strolled along the shore up to the Swabian castle (and found a wonderful place to eat: La Locanda del Porto).

I've now walked both ends of the Appian Way - a little bit of history ticked off. The head of one of the columns - the fallen one, of course - is in the local library and is well worth a look. No scholar of ancient Rome should miss this monument.
There's a small museum nearby, at the bottom of the steps, that's free. Great if you like an ancient Greek urn or Roman pot.

only one colonne is left to see at the top of the stairs, but nice to see as a partn of the old via Appia.

It is always nice when we get to places that are landmarks ...

And this is the case ... marks where the most famous "highway" 2000 years ago reached the end.

Enjoy and God bless you

We were staying nearby, so we walked by here most days. It's a nice historic piece and there are usually a few people sat on the steps.
It has great views of the harbour and is on the front, so worth a little walk to see it.

A suggestive place, one of the two columns is on the spot, the other one is in Lecce, but the place remains extremely suggestive; from the staircase you can look at the sea and you can imagine that it's the same sea that the Romans looked at 2300 years ago..

Make sure to stop by this location. The view from the top of the stairs is amazing. It is a great location for photos too.
