The ancient Appian Way exits the city of Rome through the Porta San Sebastiano, one of the most beautiful city gates still existing in the entire circle of 12 km (once 19 km) of the impressive Aurelian Walls.
It is the most important ancient Roman road connecting Rome to Brindisi.
Known as the “Regina Viarum”, it is immersed in an idyllic setting with its ancient monuments, towers, imperial villas and mausoleums; all to be discovered walking on the ancient Roman paving stones.

It is definitely a spectacular place, where art and nature coexist in 80 hectares of parkland.
Proudly added to the list of UNESCO sites just 20 years ago (together with Villa d'Este), the archaeological area preserves what remains of the sumptuous personal residence of Hadrian on the outskirts of Rome.
Once he had chosen this spot away from the chaos of the city, he personally oversaw the design of the Villa consisting of an articulated complex of over 30 buildings with numerous references to the places visited by the emperor such as Greece and Egypt.
Fire brigade barracks, spas, public baths, insulae (ancient apartment blocks), streets, shops, mills, laundries, temples, warehouses, domus, the theatre and the positions of the highly efficient guilds of traders who stopped in Ostia and managed their profitable trade to and from the capital of the Empire.
We are at the gates of Rome; we are in the port of the capital of the Empire! Ostia was a very crowded city, full of everything! Noisy, industrious, with many comings and goings of goods, wagons, slaves, people and much more!
Visiting Ostia Antica is an electrifying experience for everything it preserves and still tells today about the habits of the ancient Romans, their beliefs, and their daily life.
