The Appian Way
Today was a beautiful fall day in Rome so we got out there and walked the Appian Way. This quiet, ancient road lies just outside the city center and you are instantly transported to ancient times. The same stones lie in the place they did 2000 years ago.
Our starting point was the church of San Sebastiano, where Oliver played hide and seek.
Then it was a picnic lunch and a nap a little further down the road.
Some sights along the road:
