  • Really a great place for walkable cities, but also to feel the breath of ancient Rome. The atmosphere absorbs you, t ' enchants and even kidnaps you, feel the noise of traffic, while relatively close, yet. The presence of sports, especially rugby, is far from disturbing and is typical in the sense that it's really rare to find himself involved, outside of Rome, from juxtapositions so strangely fascinating. The Park is open from dawn to dusk, are visible emerging buildings of some famous Roman tombs, discovered by an excavation started in the second half of the 19th century and vistabili always, but by guided tour only and by appointment, at the end of which is available a phone number readily available on the web.

  • The tombs of Via Latina there is easily accessible by metro at Arco di Travertino stop or car from Appia Nuova or the Tuscolana, the city ends here. As soon as you enter the front door, a few meters from one of the busiest streets of Rome, you enter into another dimension, we leave out the machines, the polluted air, thoughts and stress and we can finally find peace, green and interesting ruins archaeological sites. A small park and underestimated that right can really reconcile with themselves.

  • On Sunday 24 September thanks to a special opening with the possibility of a guided tour with archaeologist, we with my daughter was able to admire the monumental site with the remains of the via Latina. The visit took early business of course near the Tuscolana, via Arco di Travertino at number 151. The way in ancient times, in fact had its own paving in Flint and was flanked on either side by several funerary monuments of the Republican period. Deserves especially the tomb of 2nd century d c. said of the Barberini, with its mosaics and clay's magnificent architectural decorations; during your visit you can admire then the tomb of Valeri and the tomb of Pacheco, with their beautiful frescoes and stucco, in perfect condition: subterranean rooms that were named as the "Sistine Chapel of antiquity". Finally, we visit an old villa converted into the Basilica and, half of pilgrimages by Christians until the 13th century.

  • One of the city's open air museum, what you should know before go: - It is free. - ‎Are roman tombs, mainly from 2 century AD. - ‎Tombs are very good preserved, and is posible have a close view of them. - ‎Part of the original basalt surface of the Via Latina is also visible. - ‎Is not so touristic, and you will almost alone there. - ‎Bring some snacks, there are benchs through the Via Latina where you can sit and eat. - ‎Nice place to take pictures. - ‎It's far away from city downtown, but worth it. I highly recommend visit this park.
  • Well-preserved, nowadays needs maintenance
  • A free park to walk through and see ancient tombs.
  • Super
  • The Archaeological Park of the tombs of Via Latina is one of the most important archaeological sites in the suburbs of Rome still largely intact the traditional look of the ancient Roman countryside. On the site preserves a stretch of the ancient Via Latina, which connected Rome with Capua, still paved for a long stretch of the ancient paving and on both sides many funerary monuments and historical evidences and materials from the Republican age up to the high Middle Ages. Among the numerous sepulchres that stood along the way, we visit one of Valeri, dated between 160 and 170 a.d. and which preserves an exceptional white stucco decoration and then, facing, what Pancrazi, late 1st-early 2nd century AD, named for the report the move to the entry that mentions the College funeratizio of "Pancratii", placed on the forehead of a sarcophagus of the spouses within the first room under. The first burial chamber is decorated with frescoes along the times and in the lunettes of the bows of the basement, natural landscapes, figurative, allegorical scenes representatives heads and female figures. The second burial chamber maintains a complex and rich polychrome stucco and Fresco decoration on the ceiling and on the walls, depicting mythological scenes and epic, the divine and heroic characters; in the middle of the room stands a large sarcophagus in Greek marble.
