This location is in essence an ancient road that leads from Rome to Brindisi. The old Roman Appian Way or the Via Appia Antica is extremely picturesque and people can spend a very relaxing time walking in this stretch.
The Appian Way is currently a part of the Parco Regionale dell'Appia Antica which is an archaeological and nature park. People can get bikes on hire from the tourist center and this is certainly the recommended means of exploring this location.
