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.

At the beginning of Via Appia Antica there is this small church. It is not ancient, but still it is very pleasant and quiet.
