The ancient Via Amerina camino is one of the most iconic historic places in the Lazio northern Area.
All along its way, from Amelia to Rome, it runs alongside most of the unique villages as well as the pristine green of the woods, which hide necropolises and mysterious ruins.
The unique characteristics of this ancient road, which proceeds between Roman bridges, cut cliffs and naturalistic wonders, make it one of the first important architectures of Roman expansionism.
It is today one of the best-preserved roads in Southern Etruria. It is a small unspoilt jewel for walkers looking for trekking near Rome, the Eternal City.
The Via Amerina was built in the 4th century BC, during Roman expansionism. The road, which reaches Amelia, is completed after the destruction of the Faliscan capital Falerii Veteres, in 241 BC.
The Romans built this road detached from the main Faliscan settlements, to exclude them and prevent new revolts. During the same period, they build the city of Falerii Novi, to which the Falisci are transferred. Here we tell you about the Necropolis of Cavo degli Zucchi, the largest existing Faliscan necropolis. An evocative place, full of charm and mystery.
As you will discover by opening the pages of the individual stages, the Via Amerina is a treasure chest of priceless archaeological treasures.read more >>
