Where it doesn't go nowadays...

To reduce the overall length of its route, and hence the time taken to complete the
circuit, these days the Archeobus no longer goes quite as far down the Appia Antica.

It now doesn't pass the Casale Rotondo, nor loop off round the extensive ruins of the
the massive Quintili Brothers' Villa - and, most regretably of all, doesn't let you
get off and walk around at its former terminus in the Park of the Aqueducts.

Regardless of that, those places are all well worth a visit, especially the Villa -
much more of which has recently been opened up to public view...
