The Appian Way (or in Italian, via Appia Antica) was Europe’s first superhighway and remains one of the best attractions in Rome. Possibly the oldest road still in existence, it was ancient Rome’s most important military and economic artery and it’s largely intact today!
Appian Way, via Appia is one of the earliest and strategically most important Roman roads of the ancient republic. It connected Rome to Brindisi, in southeast Italy. It is universally considered, in consideration of the time in which it was built (end of the 4th – 3rd century BC), one of the greatest civil engineering works of the ancient world due to the enormous economic, military and cultural impact it had.When: Sunday May 9th from 11:00 to about 18:00Length of hike: 5k out and 5k back (10K roughly)
