Another major sight on the Appian Way is the Circus of Maxentius. Maxentius was an emperor for a short time, and had this large circus (i.e. chariot racing track) built for his pleasure, along with a huge palace (of course). It is almost as large as the famous Circus Maximus in Rome.Here's another nice shot along the road.
Here is a shot of me on the top of the Appian Gate.
This is called the Arch of Drusus. It's right next to the Appian Gate.
