All Roads Lead

We recently booked a cheap early bird airfare to Rome, so it feels like all roads really do lead to Rome. Actually we have come across quite a few Roman roads during previous visits to Italy.

The oldest and most famous is the Appian Way, which runs from the southeast of Italy to Rome.  The first section was completed in 312BCE. You can easily visit the Appian Way on the outskirts of Rome, where we took these photos. There are plenty of ancient ruins lining the road, including the Circus of Maxentius (below).
