  • Beautiful excursion to Rocca di Papa, Località Monte Cavo in Castelli Romani regional park. You walk in a sudden beautiful and well looked after by the Roman paving "Via Sacra", used by the ancient Romans to travel on the mountain to honor the gods "Feriee Latine", celebrating the victories. Along the way there is a small loggia from which you can admire a beautiful landscape and suggestive. At the same time observe the Lake Albano and Nemi and the view extends from the city of Rome to the whole coast of Lazio, pontine islands including. A place not to be missed.

  • In the woods surrounding Rocca di Papa, the sacred way of the 7th century BC brought to the Temple of Jupiter Latiaris on Monte Cavo. Along the shores of Lake Albano, climbed up to the temple. Here each year would gather the populations of the Latin League to celebrate the Feriae Latinae, religious festivals. The width of the road, still in some places, of 2.60 meters. Outside of the street you can see the "crepidines" peperino stone walkways. The sacred way the panorama impressive and characteristic terrace, popularly known as "sea bream", it is possible to admire both Lakes Albano and Nemi.

  • The via sacra is a pleasant walk on a paved Roman road, kept fairly well for me not exactly light and simple. You can access both from the campi di annibale's from via ladders, shortening a bit the way. The view that one encounters at a certain height is great ... at the same time has the view of Lake nemi and Lake albano.

  • The Via Sacra would be the oldest sacred way in Rome. Wonderful to think that this road is there for 2000 years.
