Location & Lifestyle
The Appia Antica Park is like a wedge that, starting from the Castelli Romani creeps into the city and brings its bucolic atmosphere almost to the center of Rome, stopping at the ancient Aurelian Walls that surrounded Ancient Rome. Without a doubt it is a privileged location still chosen by the Roman emperors and aristocracy who built their villas and palaces here. In the 50s and 60s of the XX century along the initial stretch of the "queen Viarum" exclusive villas were built that became the capital's high-society residence. The possibility of reaching the Colosseum on one side and the entire historic center on the other and Ciampino airport on the other in literally 10 min, make the location very convenient for any need. Parco dell'Appia Antica is protected from the point of view of landscape and urban planning that allows it to preserve the beauty and the unique atmosphere that will not change over time. The Roman Empire, so famous for its streets, did not know any Via more important than the Appia Antica. Along its initial stretch that starts from the Porta Capena and Terme di Caracalla the road is dotted with mausoleums, sepulchres, churches, such as the famous Quo Vadis, remains of ancient villas, imposing mausoleums, towers and tombs, including famous Christian catacombs. The archaeological and historical richness gives the intense cultural life to those who live there enriched by the naturalistic importance with routes of all kinds: by bike, on horseback, on foot, guided or not. Right in front of the property's gate there is "Circolo Quo Vadis" with tennis courts and swimming pool. The Capannelle racecourse is a 14 min far. Castel Gandolfo, famous for the Pope's summer residence, astronomical observatory and the volcanic lake of rare beauty where many water sports can be practiced is just 18 km away, as are other towns in the beautiful Castelli Romani.
