THE APPIAN WAY WAS BUILT IN 312 BC WHICH CONNECTED ROME TO BRINDISI, APULIA AND IT'S STILL IN USE TODAY
The Appian Way (Latin and Italian: Via Appia) was one of the earliest and strategically most important Roman roads of the ancient republic.
It connected Rome to Brindisi, Apulia, in southeast Italy. Its importance is indicated by its common name, recorded by Statius:

Appia teritur regina longa
rum viarum "the Appian way is the queen of the long roads"

The road is named after Appius Claudius Caecus, the Roman censor who began and completed the first section as a military road to the south in 312 BC during the Samnite Wars.
