The Appian Way 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:
"The Appian way is the queen of the long roads."
This cute couple from Beijing, Weiwei and Tony, approached me for a loveshoot during my short stay in Rome last month. They were not after the typical Roman-Holiday-Audrey-Hepburn-on-Spanish-Stairs kind to my surprise, but what interested them more is the Ancient Appian Way, located in the southeast of Rome, with a lot of history and symbolized eternity.
The Roman weather was still hot in October, the sun was burning, and the walk up the hill was quite a climb. But we had so much fun shooting and laughing together and I really love how the images turned out. It is our own version of Roman Holiday.
