  • The tombs here are really not that much to see unless you are on a private tour that might unlock some of them. What is nice is the preserved section of road that gives a glimpse of what it used to be...  more »
  • This is a small slice of green space in southern Rome - about a 15 minute walk from the nearest Metro station (Arco di Travertino) but worth making the effort for. It's a remarkable snapshot of imperi...  more »
  • It seems almost paradoxical, but the Via Latina is the mother even ancestress of the Appian way (the famous Regina Viarum). So much so that in the Roman Republic was a great credit to families, have a grave on the way they had over VIII centuries: the via Appia was born only in 312 BC. Even more amazing nowadays is the stretch of the Roman countryside around 500 metres saved by speculation that receives extraordinary monuments discovered to their fortune in the 19th century. The complex now collects a number of tombs that are part of the vast necropolis located at 3rd mile of the via Latina. Among the most important, mainly belonging to the Imperial period, the first grave that you encountered is the so-called Barberini Tomb actually Corneli (2nd century AD), externally built in bricks in two colors, red and yellow. It is a small temple and 3 floors of which the hypogeum is currently inaccessible, while the rest consists of a ground floor and one on the first floor; entrance on the opposite side of the road. Follows the tomba dei Valeri (160 a.d.). Via two stairs leads to the funerary cell beautiful especially for decorating the Maccabees and the vault with scenes from the funeral, well 35 world medallions. The central medallion shows a winged figure, carried on the back by a Gryphon, then the soul of the deceased carried to heaven. Note that the part turned up it was all fantasy rebuilt in modern times. Almost bordering this grave are the remains of some thermal environments linked to a statio, a resting place and refreshment from our community. We then find the tomb of Pacheco (late 1st-early 2nd century AD) preserved only in part under which is accessed via a ladder. You can see a barrel-vaulted vestibule containing traces of paintings and a high counter that surrounds three sides and is supported by arches where are painted scenes of funeral character. Over this counter were the sarcophagi: talking remains in situ one only with the inclusion of the Guild of Pancratii. The floor of the burial chamber is patterned black and white; While the vault is decorated with coloured stucco and paintings of mythological subjects. On the tomb of Calpurni which then remains only the part under. At the end of the Park, in the 5th century ad was implanted, above a Roman villa of Anise, the basilica of Saint Stephen of which only part. The plant had two aisles with apse and Baptistery. The area is easily accessible by subway, getting off at Arco di Travertino.

  • Is a small park, but filled with beauty and Majesty. Environment, almost intact tombs, the Via Latina still fit for circulation. Deserves to be visited and revisited.

  • Park not so well known but very interesting. Ideal for a passeggiata archeologica but also for being surrounded by greenery. Inside the Park you can visit several Roman tombs, I recommend you contact the Park to find out when there are some openings of tombs and their guided tours.
