APPIA ANTICA 1 HISTORIC AND ARCHAEOLOGICAL ITINERARY

If you want to discover the Via Appia Antica on foot, the visits can be booked for couples, families or groups.

FROM SAN SEBASTIANO CATHEDRAL UNTIL THE ALLEY OF TOR CARBONE

A guided walk along the “Queen of all roads”, a unique path in the world a stone’s throw from the center of Rome. From the Basilica of San Sebastiano, which preserves the footprints of Jesus Christ impressed on a marble slab linked to the famous legend of the “Domine Quo Vadis?” We will proceed to the most impressive and famous monuments of the street. We will see the Circus and the Private Villa of the Emperor Maxentius, the Mausoleum of Romulus and the Tomb of Cecilia Metella. We will then walk on the first stretch of original Roman basolato, the road with large basalt slabs marked by the rails of the carts that have walked through it over the centuries.
