Impressive colossus as entry to Italy (from sea)
Jun 2021 • Couples
Impressive to read the history imaging you being in the past when the via Appia was build and these colossus were the first things people arriving in Italy would see

The View
Sep 2019
One of the best or the best spot to view the port and the all the Cruize ships along the way. Sunset or Sunrise are also free attractions along this big stairs way, there is room for eveyone cause it is a long alley. If you have something to eat like gelatto or canoli, or any kind of drink, fun will be complete. Great experience.

The remains of the day
Jun 2020
Here lie the remains of the two Roman columns that marked the end of the Appian Way; the historic roadway that led all the way from Rome. Looking lost and abandoned at the top of Virgil’s staircase they reflect the atmosphere that Brindisi exudes. They do however nod to the history of Brindisi and its strategic position on the Adriatic.

These two columns, one that still stands but has been rebuilt, pay testimony to the Romans. This was literally the end of the Appian Way.

A magic place
Aug 2019
A suggestive place, one of the two columns is on the spot, the other one is in Lecce, but the place remains extremely suggestive; from the staircase you can look at the sea and you can imagine that it's the same sea that the Romans looked at 2300 years ago..

The end of the journey...
Jul 2019
I've now walked both ends of the Appian Way - a little bit of history ticked off. The head of one of the columns - the fallen one, of course - is in the local library and is well worth a look. No scholar of ancient Rome should miss this monument.
There's a small museum nearby, at the bottom of the steps, that's free. Great if you like an ancient Greek urn or Roman pot.

End of the Road
Jul 2019 • Couples
Ancient Roman stone column marking the end of the 560 km Appian Way which started at the Forum in Rome. So, a must see on a trip to Brindisi !

Easy to find. From here can easily walk to other historical sites which are well signed. Hardly anyone around when we visited in late afternoon . Was really surprised that the general area was quite attractive and certainly clean, with little traffic, not what we had perceived it likely to be .

History and beauty
Jul 2019 • Couples
The Appian Way has so much history and the columns make the start (or end). They are at the top of a beautiful set of stairs leading down to the port. It’s a great meeting point with wonderful views and a pleasant breeze.
