A drive through the Appian Way, the oldest and most famous Roman road in ancient Rome. It was opened in 312 BC by Appius Claudius (from whence it gets its name) and was called “Queen of Roads” because of all the villas, temples and funeral monuments that lined it. Those impressive ruins can still be seen today. Visit the Church of Domine Quo Vadis, built along the Appian Way, just outside of Rome, beyond St. Sebastian’s gate. This small church marks the place where the Risen Christ appeared to St. Peter as he was fleeing Rome during Nero’s persecution of Christians. The church’s name is Latin for the question Peter asked of Christ: “Lord, where are you going?” (Domine, quo vadis?).
