Via Appia Antica - Appian Way

La via Appia Antica è una strada romana che collegava Roma a Brindisi, il più importante porto per la Grecia e l'Oriente nel mondo dell'antica Roma. L'Appia è probabilmente la più famosa strada romana di cui siano rimasti i resti, la sua importanza viene confermata dal soprannome con il quale i Romani la chiamavano: regina viarum.

 

The Appian Way (Latin and Italian: Via Appia) was one of the earliest and strategically most important Roman roads of the ancient republic. It connected Rome to Brindisi, Apulia, in southeast Italy. Its importance is indicated by its common name, recorded by Statius:

Appia teritur regina longarum viarum

"the Appian way is commonly said to be the queen of the long roads"

The road is named after Appius Claudius Caecus, the Roman censor who began and completed the first section as a military road to the south in 312 BC during the Samnite Wars. (From Wikipedia)
