Key information:

Join Darius Arya for a walk from the starting point of the Porta Capena (by the Circus Maximus) and then depart outside the Aurelian Wall circuit. You’ll see a small, historic river, milestones, monumental tombs, villas, and more. Also featuring our original drone footage. You won’t want to miss the first 6 miles of the Via Appia – it just might guide you on your own future exploration of the environs of Rome. Join us for this compelling stroll along the sprawling archaeological park, and learn more about the history of the Via Appia. And be sure to subscribe for weekly video content on Rome and Empire!
