Named for the great Roman road that skirts the southwest of the neighbourhood and runs all the way to Puglia, Appio Latino often feels forgotten compared to the rest of the city. In reality though, it still has a fair amount to offer. Beyond the eponymous road, there’s also the enormous Parco della Caffarella, dotted with ruins and complete with good bird-watching. You’re unlikely to find many high-rise buildings or high-powered businessmen, instead there are locals going about their business in a much more peaceful setting. However, if you want to get to the more tourist-oriented areas, there’s a metro line that runs along the edge of the district that can take you to the heart of Monti in 15 minutes.
