The Parco Archeologico dell'Appia Antica is a peripheral non-general executive level office of the MIBACT, created following the Franceschini reform, which carries out protection activities on the Appian Way and other assigned properties and sites.
The Institute was created with the aim of promoting the territorial area crossed by the ancient Appian Way, recognising its specificity among the places of culture and the unity of the various archaeological, monumental and landscape complexes.
The Parco Archeologico dell'Appia Antica stretches from the Aurelian Walls to the locality of Frattocchie in the municipality of Marino, between the Via Ardeatina and the Appia Nuova, including the Valle della Caffarella and the area of Tormarancia. Its perimeter actually coincides with that of the Parco Regionale dell'Appia Antica (established by Regional Law 66/1988), which is responsible for nature conservation.
The Archaeological Park is in charge of a large stretch of the ancient Via Appia, owned by the State, from house number 195 to the town of Frattocchie, with the monuments on either side, and the sites of Cecilia Metella and Castrum Caetani, Capo di Bove, Villa dei Quintili and Santa Maria Nova, the Park of the Tombs of the Via Latina, the Aqueduct complex, the Villa dei Sette Bassi, the Antiquarium of Lucrezia Romana.
The Parco Archeologico dell'Appia Antica exercises its competences in the field of protection, conservation and valorisation in order to contribute to the safeguarding of the cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible, and to the promotion and valorisation of the monuments and the landscape as a whole.
For the timetables of the sites please refer to the individual related sheets.
