If you´re really into the ancient Roman thing, beyond the Forum, Colosseum, and the like it may also be worth venturing down to the southeast of the city (Metro line A, Giulio Agricola stop) to another stretch of the Appian Way where you´ll find the Parco degli Acquedotti, a 240ha (593-ac.) spread centred around a half dozen of the aqueducts - dating as far back as 144 BCE - which once supplied Rome with its water. There´s also an aqueduct from the Middle Ages, as well as several other mostly medieval buildings and structures, the remains of an ancient Roman villa, and a section of the ancient Via Latina. It´s a peaceful and eye-opening experience indeed.

  • I´ve been here. And yes, I´m "really into the ancient Roman thing," but found this only mildly interesting. Still, if you´ve got the time, sure!
