Location: Appian Way (Via Appia)

The Appian Way is ancient road which date as far back as 312 BC. This historical and picturesque road was used in many PEPLUM films, including QUO VADIS (1951) which actually starts with a voice-over saying "This is the Appian way" as we see a Roman army marching towards Rome. I'd love to go there one day.

I had the opportunity to visit the Appian Way and believe me it's something to behold, lots of history is connected with this road. It's a beautiful area, but then all of Italy with it's ancient ruins and wonderful citizens is beautiful.
