Via Lanuvio 25, (Corner of Via Appia Nuova)
Known as ï¾?Queen of the Long Roadsï¾?, The Appian Way served as one of the earliest roads of ancient Rome. The road connected Rome with Brindisi, Apulia located in southeast Italy. The nomenclature of the road was done after Appius Claudius Caecus, the Roman censor who was notable in completing the first section as a military road during the Samnite Wars.
The road also connects many Roman monuments of immense historical significance. Noteworthy among them is The Tomb of Priscilla which was erected in the first century and belonged to Priscilla. This is situated opposite to the Church of Domine Quo Vadis. Also, along The Appian Way is The Catacomb of Callixtus which is prominent for containing the Crypt of the Popes. It once contained the tombs of Popes from the 2nd to 4th centuries. The catacomb of St. Sebastian is also located along the road which serves as the resting place in honour of the martyr.
