Visiting the Park 
The Park 
Itinerari
On foot

1 - From Porta Capena to Cecilia Metella and to Castello Caetani
The route is split into two sections: the first is outside the Park, the second inside. To understand the close link between the monumental centre of Rome and the Appia Antica the ideal entrance to the Park is the ancient Porta Capena; the walk winds its way around the perimeter walls of the suburban farmhouses of post-rinascimento Rome: this is the "road through the vineyards" recorded on Giovanbattista Nolli's famous map in 1748.
ATTENTION: on week days the via Appia Antica between Porta San Sebastiano and Cecilia Metella is open to traffic and there is insufficient room for pedestrians. We advise visitors to walk through the San Callisto catacombs, the entrance is at the crossroads between the via Appia Antica and via Ardeatina.
