Appian Way

The Appian Way’s importance in antiquity is only reinforced by its nickname—the Queen of Roads. Connecting Rome with Brindisi in southern Italy, it was one of the earliest roads of the Roman Republic. As function for the road changed over time, it became notable for its monuments to wealthy members of society and these remaining structures, such as the Tomb of Cecilia Metella and the Circus of Maxentius help us understand the power structure of the ancient world. Before endeavoring toward the aforementioned monuments, we will first stop by the Circus Maximus and Baths of Caracalla, where we will begin our discussion of Roman society and the use of urban planning as a social and political tool during the Empire.
