Parco Regionale Appia Antica
Leave the hustle and bustle of Rome behind for a sylvan retreat along the Appia Antica. This was once one of the most important Roman roads, connecting the capitol to Brindisi far in the south. Today you can visit catacombs, churches and ruins of ancient villas, and picnic in the shade of aqueducts and in the company of sheep. On weekends the road is pedestrian- and bike-only.
