This is the twenty fourth stage of the Via Appia by foot, from town of Fondi to sea town of Terracina

Stage 23 <<-- Stage 24 - Fondi to Terracina -->> Stage 25

In general, the track follows the Via Appia Antica loosely as it's usually not possible to hike the original route anymore. In large part because the old road has been upgraded over the centuries and is now a highway in some section or a main provincial road where cars are speeding by you. In other sections, the road is simply gone. Instead, I've searched for nice roads, a little away from any main roads where there is a lot less traffic (or none at all), while trying to stay true to the original road where possible.

Please note that this stage is significantly shorter than the previous or next stage. This allows for a archaeological site visit which you'll pass by along the trail, but also to recover a little bit and to prepare for the next stage.

Like the previous stage, the Via Appia has been upgraded over time is now the SS7, which is a larger road with speeding cars. Where possible, an alternative parallel track has been selected, but there still a considerable part of the track along the main road, so extra care needs to be taken and this stage might not be very exciting, compared to some of the other stages.

The track begins in the centre of Fondi. As you leave town, you'll pass by 2 supermarkets and a sport store. As there will be no other shops the rest of the day, it would be wise to get enough to eat and drink for the day at these shops and you may want to visit the sports store if you need to make changes to your outfit.

Just before your odometer reaches 6 km, you'll leave the SS7, pass under the tracks and follow a smaller and safer road running parallel to the SS7 and the train tracks. This stretch is not much more entertaining, but at least more safe.

When your odometer reaches 10 km, you'll be once again on the SS7. This time for almost 5 km. From there, you'll leave the SS7 behind and take a different road that will involve some altitude gain, but at least it's a lot safer.

Just after your odometer reaches 17.5 km, you'll have the option to visit the Sanctuary of Giove Anxur. In the unlikely event you don't like to see centuries old sites, you can skip it and make today's hike 3 km shorter.

When you get close to the site, there is a ticket booth where you'll need to pay a 7 euro entry fee. Here you'll also find a small restaurant/bar and a souvenir shop.

Sanctuary of Giove Anxur is a Roman temple built on a hill some 227 m (745 ft) tall, offers impressive views of the nearby town and the Mediterranean sea. The substructure dates back to the first century BCE. The ruins themselves include a fortified camp, the temple itself and its terrace, as well as a smaller temple with traces of ninth-century frescoes. Roman cults worshipping the gods Venus and possibly Jupiter celebrated rites here.

After visiting the temple, the rest of the walk, less than 2 km, will take you to Albergo named "Hegelberger" run by Germans and costs around 30 euro a night

There are also plenty of other places to stay in town, but most are quite expensive. Below are a few places that seem a bit more reasonable in price.
