An engineering marvel that brought more water into Ancient Rome than Rome currently uses. Allowed for a concentration of people (over 1M) that was unsurpassed for 2000 years (London in 19th century). Only one of 11 now working, which feeds Trevi Fountain
Established in 200 BC to retain control of southern Italy, this rock laid thoroughfare was a Roman engineering marvel. Now you can walk or bike ride a portion of it just miles from Rome and enjoy green meadows, farmland, catacombs, aqueduct and big vistas
Visit this church as part of a walk through the narrow streets of Travestre. Commemorates St Cecilia, a martyr in the early Roman church. Built of quaint, quiet square in 16th century, features an unusual sculpture of St Cecilia and striking altar frescoe
