  • If you want a little quiet and beautiful scenery go. The 118 bus and get off at the stop of the catacombs of St. Sebastian. You can start with a guided visit the catacombs. Fun to do. We did not bike there but we were out of season (March). We rented in a little further in a small snack bar on the left. The owners were very friendly (€10 3 h by bike.) Provide an identity document for the rental). We opted for the bike and we have not regretted after days of market in Rome. Thanks to the bike we were able to go further and enjoy the landscape until the aqueduct. Old tombs and ruins along the via appia with several visits to do. For practicability in bike's still good with a little attention. The portions with large cobblestones are rare and you can at this time here pass on the sides. Plan a picnic, or eat in one of the restaurants at the beginning. After there more. A very nice ride. It is not uncommon to see flocks of sheep and goats. Apparently before access was allowed to cars but since March 2018 that is no longer the case! Apart from local residents.

  • Via Appia Antica, much more interest in the archaeological, artistic and landscape context. Arrogantly named Queen (Regina viarum), it was started by Appiem Claudius in 312 to NOE. According to Roman tradition, its parties over many miles of tombs and monuments stretched over twenty generations of deceased noble families. Family only patricians were eligible for burial along this road: here were Crypts Scipioni, Furies, Beckoned, Sestili. The first part of the Appian Road corresponds to today's Street Thermae of Caracalla (Via delle di Caracalla) and the street of the gate of St. Sebastian (Via di Porta San Sebastiano). First Street owes its name to the famous Thermal baths of Caracalla or Antonianovym baths, who started Septimiem, 206 North and officially opened in 2017, Karakalloj, had been completed, however, when their successors Jeliogabale and Alexander North. In the mountains in large halls take hot baths can simultaneously 1600 people. Magnificent arches, porticos, jeksedry, gyms, where the most rare types of marble, colossal columns, the most beautiful statues of some other proposed age view citizen, where even the baths were made from basalt, granite and Alabaster. Today, these ruins and vast ruins may give an idea of the magnitude and extent of these "baths".

  • The buildings to visit all closed rather early (at approximately 15h30), so it's good to come early. The road itself was also in a bas condition, so not very accessible for people with disabilities. PS: The public toilet is hard to find, go to the information center down the street for directions.
  • Me and my girlfriend had an Absolutely beautiful day long escape here. We rented 2 bicycles at the entrance of the park and enjoyed the ruins and remains of this Roman way. We brought our lunch and had a pic in under an old ruin on the side of the big cobble stones road
  • How amazing to take a Sunday walk through the beginning of the Roman countryside, on a 2000 year old road!
  • Nice park. Lack of orgenized sitting places
  • You can rent a bike at "Punto Informativo Appia Antica" nearby and ride along the Appian Way for 10s of km.
