    Via Appia Antica

    One of the best sightseeing things Rome offers, in my view. But to walk along the Via Appia Antica you need to have time to spend, that is if you want to stop and see all the things there are to admire while you are on your walk!

    I must say that this is the best preserved Roman road I have ever seen, and I always pay attention to such things - I am a real junkie for all things ancient:)))

    Ancient Rome is also famous for his roads network. Its strenght was also the possibilities to move big armies using those roads in a relatively short time.

    Roads connected the whole empire. For example the Via Aurelia (Aurelia road) reached Barcelona (yes, in Spain)!

    The Appian road (Via Appia antica) is a open sky museum. This is a pic taken from my travelogue I strongly recommend you to visit.

    Walk along the Appian Way - it is so evocative. You can just imagine the soldiers marching along it in days gone by. It's a nice place to have a picnic. You'll have sore feet by the time you get back to your hotel.

    There is a biycle rental place south of the Outer Wall.
    A bicycle saves a lot of walking
    There are three Catacombs to choose from and two restaurants .
    Budget half a day.

    This area is still alive after 2000 years.
    Here, in summer, many concerts and spectacles take place, just like in the Arena in Verona
