Dating back to the fourth century BCE, the via Appia is the oldest and most prestigious of Roman roads. The regina viarum--queen of all roads--was named after the Roman censor Appius Claudius, who completed its first stretch toward Campania and the south. The road became a gateway to Italy and eventually the entire Roman Empire, and it defined Rome's urban development and city planning for centuries. Our walk, led by an archaeologist, classicist, art historian, or architectural historian, explores the importance of the Appian Way as well as the meaning and function of the monuments along its path.
