Photographer's Note

Hello folks.
Today I’ll show you a photo from the old country road; the ‘via Appia antica’. As I can understand, this road is about 2500 years old! No wonder that it’s so worn! In the link you can read a lot more about this ancient road and there’s also a map of its path.
One of the days in our stay in Rome we took a bus out to the tomb of Cecilia Metella from where we walked approx 3 km on the ‘via Appia antica’ to the villa Quintili.
To this day the ‘Via Appia antica’ still contains the longest stretch of straight road in Europe: 62km.
Cars weren’t allowed to drive there except for those people who lived there and had permission. In the photo you can see, if you look close, a road sign. If you look in this WS you can see what’s on the sign.
