  • A marvel, but in his pedestrian part (from the funerary monument of Cecilia Metella). Downtown Capo di Bove staff is very welcoming and delivers an amount of information on the history of the site.

  • I was born and I live by long before it was created the Appian way regional park. Fortunately, the Park is inhabited by humans (private) because as the public body known their vocation a vexatious against private individuals.

  • 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.
