The final stage of EuroVelo 5 Follows long stretches of the Via Appia Antica, or, ‘Queen of the roads’, named as such due to its importance, connecting Rome to the major port of Brindisi to the east of the city. The Via Appia was later used during the following centuries forming part of a pilgrim’s route, connecting Rome to Jerusalem by land and sea. Each of the towns touched by the route is unique and fascinating, well preserved and surprisingly off the beaten track. Brindisi is traditionally open to visitors and will not fail to communicate its charm.
