We can visit the oldest and most famous consular road, the first step of a road network that extended to 80,000 km across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. For the imposing mausoleums built along the road, the Appian Way was renamed the Queen of Roads from the beginning. Admire the wonders of Romans, at “Villa dei Quintili” from the water supply to the heating, the private arena floor mosaics of Emperor Commodus; and discover the tragic fate of the two brothers owners of the estate, executed by the Emperor intends to confiscate their goods. We next visit the monumental tombs of Roman noble families, such as the Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella; and the Villa of Maxentius, with its well preserved circus. Then we reach the oldest catacombs of Rome, dedicated to St. Sebastian: this ancient cemeterian area includes 4 underground levels, where there are frescoes, stuccos and inscriptions.
