Via Appia Antica & the Archeobus

Many “hop-on hop-off” buses circle Rome's attractions but back in November 2006 the
low-slung green Archeobus was a new discovery for us.

Today it runs from near Termini Station, and passes the baths of Caracalla before leaving
the city through the 'Porto San Sebastian' gate, and follows the ancient Via Appia - much
of whose early course is lined with catacombs of many religions and the ruins of Roman tombs,
since at the time burials within the city walls were forbidden.

Its route has been shortened somewhat, and no longer goes as far as either the
recently-reopened massive country villa of the Quintili brothers or the
"Park of the Aqueducts".

(You many need to click the Union Jack symbol to see an English version)

and, for descriptions of places along the route it now takes,
