Appia Road – VARIANT 2 Segment 27

From TARANTO (Tarentum) to Farm GALEONE (Mesochorus) from NORTH

This segment to the statio Mesochorus near the Farm Galeone, described by various authors, is now unrecognisable due to changed local conditions (steelworks, new residences, new road system).

However, some old Farms (Nasisi, S. Pietro and Le Lamie) where the road probably passed and some Chapels (Madonna di Galese,…) or remains of ancient villas (Roman or medieval) built in a beautiful position, testifying to an ancient and even pre-Roman road system, can still be found.
