Via Appia Antica
Free access between km 125.8 and 129.6.

One of the best preserved parts of the Appian Way is the pass of Itri and its gorges. This part of the paved Roman way is easily walkable for ca. 3 km and it is really amazing with its fantastic landscape of the Aurunci Mountains, hosting fantastic works of art, most of which are still well preserved. This part of the journey is very clear thanks to the signs and marking of the Natural Park of the Aurunci Mountains. A cart track leads you to the bridge of the XVI century that goes beyond the small river hiding the remaining parts of the most ancient Roman one. Different monuments are to be seen at its sides, as the Fortress of Saint Andrew, the squared terracing and remaining of old rest areas with sheltering structures.
At Saint Paul’s time the road was paved with white limestones, which were substituted some centuries after by the more resistant volcanic basalt according to Emperor Caracalla’s will.
