Global Homes: Exclusive Estate on Famous Roman Road

The Appian Way is one of the earliest and most important roads in Roman history, as it connected the city of Rome to Brindisi in Italy. Thus, this exclusive estate situated on the Appian Way is a testament to the time and boasts a variety of antiquated artwork across its vast interior. The villa is also close to the Tomb of Caecilia Metella and the Colosseum.

Exclusive Estate on the Via Appia Antica

This exclusive estate is situated on the Via Appia Antica (or Ancient Appian Way), a famous Roman-era archaeological park. Though the villa seems pretty secluded, it's only about 300 meters from the Tomb of Caecilia Metella and 10 minutes from the Colosseum.

Villa Surrounded By Private Parkland
