The next day, February 11th, plan to explore Via Appia Antica, an ancient historic road just outside Rome’s city center.  The road begins outside the Porta San Sebastiano, a gate in the city walls, and is lined with interesting historical buildings, including the church of Domine Quo Vadis, where St. Peter is reported to have had a vision of Christ. The Catacombs*, which you will visit on today’s journey, are set close to this stretch of road.
