Near the catacombs of San Sebastiano and San Callisto in the south from the city center is the ancient old cobblestone street, the most famous road in the world. The Via Appia Antica connects Rome with the area of the Campagna. In ancient times it was surrounded by extra ordinary villas and beautiful tombs. This area was also important for cristians.
The street is worth a walk. But in modern times more and more gets destroyed by the growing city.

Address:
Via Appia Antica, 57-83, 00179 Rom, Italien

How to get there:
Take the subway to the station 'via ostiense' and then the bus.
