  • The Park is a green "Lung" between Rome City Centre and the Alban hills. Represents the most important remnant of the Roman historical, archeological and scenic viewpoint. Includes the Appian way and the surrounding area, the Valley of Caffarella, the archaeological sites of the aqueducts, of Tor Fiscale and the tombs of via Latina, Tor Marancia and Farnesiana. Unmissable

  • We rented bikes and despite the cold weather we enjoyed this majestic Roman road. I recommend it to everyone.

  • I always come back again on the Appian way, on an amazing journey in the history of Rome, a dip in the glorious past from the catacombs, to the distinguished of the past, monuments and a road only passable on foot. A relaxing and healthy environment in a beautiful green meadows and pines.

  • It's a very beautiful place to go and explore nature and Roman ruins & history, but don't walk there; take the bus, then walk. I thought Via Appia would be a leisurely stroll on my last day in Rome, but it turns out that it's basically a full blown highway with small sidewalks in the area around the tombs. It didn't feel safe!
  • Great place for walking...wide open spaces and archeological ruins. Unspoilt and unmaintained.
  • Top: When walking, take the bus road to San Callisto catacombs instead of Via appia because it's like an highway. After this road, go to the via appia.
  • Great area. Great bike ride.
  • Great bike ride. Don't stop after the first leg. It gets much better from there.
