  • 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.
