The Unusual Rome series - Bike tour of the ancient Appian Way

33pm

“All roads lead to Rome” as they say, and in this case it’s true!

The ancient via Appia, also called in Latin regina viarum (queen of roads) is the widest among Roman consular roads. In its heyday this avenue ran from Rome to the port of Brindisi on the Adriatic coast, where boats left for Egypt, Greece, and North Africa.

The road today is well preserved, flanked on both sides by fields punctuated with ruins and other vestiges of Roman history, its large flat paving stones polished by millennia of use and weathering.

All LUISS students are invited to join!

  • When: Saturday April 29, at 2:30 p.m.
  • Meeting point: Appia Antica Info Point, via Appia Antica 60
