The Appian Way is not for the faint of heart on a non-Sunday, the only day the road is closed to traffic. I was prepared with this information and decided to take a taxi there... a bit more expensive but worth the comfort given this was our 5th day in Rome. This tomb by itself is not worth the effort, but combined with the Capo di Bove, the villa di Maxentius, and either of the Catacombs, it is. This tomb is very cool if its one of your first days in Rome. However if you've seen everything else you may be disappointed. The size of it however is fascinating. Metella was the daughter in law of Crassus, the least famous piece of the Julius Caeser/Pompey triumverate. The tomb is free with the Roma Pass. We ran in to a very nice gatekeeper who allowed us free entry even though we had already used the pass for two sites. There is a bus that gets here, but requires a transfer from the heart of Rome...just Google transportation to the Appian Way and a Trip Advisor thread should be in the results.
