The Ancient Appian Way Virtual Tour – The Queen of the Roman Roads

Embark on a captivating journey along the ancient Appian Way, a marvel of Roman engineering and a testament to the grandeur of the Roman Empire. This immersive virtual tour takes you through the ancient path of “Via Appia,” stretching from the heart of Rome to Capua in Campania and then further to south eastern Italy, reaching Brindisi, on the Adriatic sea.

Known as “the Queen of all Roman roads,” the Appian Way was not only the first but also the most illustrious of Rome’s network of roads. Constructed between 312 and 264 B.C., the Appian Way was crucial for moving supplies and troops across the Roman Empire and today, it still stands, adorned with archaeological treasures, catacombs, mausoleums, aqueducts, and remarkable ruins.

Why do we say “all roads lead to Rome”? What inspired the ancient Romans to develop the revolutionary concept of a ‘street’? Discover this and so much more in this NEW virtual experience along the Appian Way, the ‘queen of the roads’, one of the greatest examples of Roman engineering.
