Experience the Appian Way. A must-do for nature and history lovers alike!

On our Appian Way Tour you’ll take a spectacular walk through the most important road of ancient Rome, nowadays part of the largest natural-archaeological park in Italy!

The Via Appia used to connect Rome to the ancient Port of Brindisi in Apulia, strategic hub of the Roman Empire.

Infact thousands of huge cargo and military ships used to leave from there to reach the eastern provinces of the Empire. Meanwhile people from Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Syria and far beyond used to sail across the Mediterranean Sea to get to Brindisi and find their way to Rome through the ancient Appian Way, basically one of the oldest highways of the western world!

The main check-point and entrance gate to the Eternal City was the magnificient Porta Appia – today known as Porta San Sebastiano – exactly where your tour starts from!

Not only stunning ancient Roman monuments, mausoleums and villas will flank your walk, but also timeless landmarks of early-Christian history, like the hidden Church of Domine Quo Vadis or the Catacombs of Saint Callixtus, the largest underground necropolis in Rome with its 20 kilometers of  multi-storey tunnels and secret alleys!

This is just a part of all the highlights and hidden gems you’ll wander through on a unique tour with a great local guide! Also, itinerary and duration of the visit can be 100% personalized according to your needs.
