• TOUR dell’APPIA ANTICA: LA REGINA DELLE STRADE •
Se volete godervi un’esperienza unica sulla Roma Antica, da soli o con i vostri bambini, questo è il tour che fa per voi! Niente musei stressanti o file interminabili, quello dell’Appia Antica è il parco Archeologico più grande d’Europa e lo spazio non manca per niente!
Questo tour è particolarmente adatto alle famiglie oltre chè per i grandi spazi anche per le storie bellissime da raccontare! Imperatori e Santi, Antichi Romani e persino Greci: tutti hanno attraversato la strada più antica del mondo lasciandovi un segno.
Seguite la vostra guida alla scoperta della “Regina delle Strade” e scoprite perchè l’Appia Antica si chiama ancora così!
Orgoglio dell’Impero, esempio unico di ingegneria e tecniche costruttive infallibili, l’Appia ha 2300 anni ma se li porta benissimo! Scopriremo insieme le ville, le Basiliche e le catacombe che si susseguono lungo i primi tratti e ci sembrerà di viaggiare nel tempo in uno spazio unico!
Il Parco dell’Appia Antica non è lontano dal Centro storico ma non avrete sentore del caos e del traffico. L’imperatore Massenzio deve aver pensato proprio la stessa cosa quando 1600 anni fa si è costruito lì la sua villa suburbana con il grandissimo circo per le corse private e il mausoleo di famiglia (detto oggi “Mausoleo di Romolo”).
Immaginate migliaia di persone sedute a destra e a sinistra degli spalti del circo di Massenzio ad assistere agli spettacoli con la visione della cupola del Mausoleo dedicato al figlio dell’imperatore in lontanza
Restano visibili sia parte degli spalti che i cancelli di partenza dei carri, incluso il podio dell’imperatore. Siamo certi che piacerà a grandi bambini!
L’altro grande protagonista di questo tour sarà il Mausoleo di Caecilia Metella
Una tomba di 2000 anni fa per celebrare una famiglia ricchissima e potentissima e lasciare che il bianco edificio ricordasse ai passanti quanto potere avessero a Roma. Cecilia era stata infatti moglie di uno dei generale di Giulio Cesare! Anche se adesso il mausoleo sembra una torre di un castello, vi spiegheremo com’era all’inizio e perchè ora appare così!
Per finire: un complesso termale nella tenuta detto “CAPO DI BOVE” preservato ancora benissimo e ricco di mosaici straordinari. Riuscite a vederli, i romani? Ore e ore a chiacchierare da una vasca all’altra!
Non sottovalutate la possibilità di fermarvi nel parco per un pic nic alla fine del tour. Spazi aperti, tanto silenzio e l’antica Roma intorno a voi! Che vi serve di più?
Ci vediamo lì!
