The first miles of the first highway ever
Along the Appia Antica way you can find a large number of landmarks and monuments telling the story about Rome’s Republican period and the Empire.
Some of the most famous things to visit are: Porta San Sebastiano and Aurelian Walls, the Tomb of Geta, the Tomb of Priscilla, the area of the Imperial Palace and Circus of Maxentius, the large round Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella, the Catacombs of St. Sebastian and Praetextatus.
The numerous churches along the Appian Way date back to Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque times. One of these is St. Mary in Palmis Church, better known as “Chiesa del Domine Quo Vadis”.
