  • the beauty of this place is worth a visit for the charm and quiet of cobblestones and the monuments that surround it. Beautiful even to do by bike

  • A privilege to follow the paths of the huge park of Appia. Very extensive and rich in relics and ruins of a forgotten era. Remarkable,

  • Although it seems that it has become fashionable the ride by the via Appia Antica, I recommend strongly to make it walk and towards Roma. My starting point was close to Ciampino airport. There are buses and can also be reached by car. Walking the Via Appia Antica is like riding a magic carpet and let the imagination fly. The final stretch between Ciampino and the Colosseum (about 15 to 20 km) is unmatched. How wonderful! Even the latin seemed understandable! Quo Vadis?

  • 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.
