Appia Road Segment 18
From ARPAIA (Caudium) to BENEVENTO (Beneventum)
This segment is completely hidden under the SS7 – modern Appia road, but all the original old bridges were destroyed in World War II.
From Arpaia to Montesarchio, the ancient Caudium, is a single straight stretch across a beautiful plateau.
After Montesarchio, the Appia road crosses the Corvo stream several times with several bridges:
Before reaching Benevento (Beneventum, formerly Maleventum), the Appia road separates from the SS7, to follow the Serratella stream and cross the Leproso bridge over the Calore river (see G02 – Galliazzo no.219).
