Also known as the Appian Way, Via Appia Antica is a stretch of an ancient road that connected Rome to Brindisi. At present, the route is part of the Parco Regionale dell'Appia Antica, an archaeological park in Rome. Via Appia Antica is a long stretch of road that people visit for early morning jogs, walking their dogs, or just exploring the ancient heritage of Rome and its scenic surroundings.
Via Appia Antica is named after a Roman Politician, Appius Claudius Caecus. Some part of Via Appia Antica serves as a functioning road for the city traffic. But, that is just the first 5 kilometres of the stretch. Beyond that, as the road proceeds in the archaeological park, it becomes less crowded. This portion onwards, travellers can explore the attraction on foot. One must wear a good pair of shoes to aid walking through this ancient road exploring the ruins. Via Appia Antica is also famous amongst bikers. There are places nearby where one can rent a bike to explore most of the expansive nature park.
