Domine Quo Vadis is the last "site" that you can visit at the end of the Appian Way walk. Beautifully preserved and rather small when compared to other churches in Rome. It is worth a visit even if it is just to rest your feet...More

Not much to see there, but, for devout Christians, it is worth a stop, if you're already nearby, at Via Appia Antica. It is located a few hundred feet, after Porta di San Sebastiano. The current church was built in 1637, but there had been...More

After visiting the Catacombs de Castillo, the Domine Quo Vadis is right there. If you are a believer, you should make a stop. Hear about the story of Peter as he was leaving Rome.

Bus 218 from San Giovanni Metro Station on Line A, Just watch for it on the left. It is a very small and not very impressive building but as a religious experience quite important.
