Sheltered from traffic, the ancient medieval street Casillina houses the Hotel Vitti. The Via Casillina is a medieval street that connected Rome to Casilinum (modern Capua), the river port of ancient Capua (today's Santa Maria Capua Vetere), taking up the path of two other Roman roads: the Via Labicana and the Via Latina. Initially the route of the Casilina ended in Labicum, today's municipality of Monte Compatri, taking the name of Via Labicana.
Here it flowed into the Via Latina, thus reaching Casilinum. The current name dates back to the medieval period and derives from the destination town.
The current route of the state road 6, Via Casilina, exits the Porta Maggiore in Rome and, advancing into the Roman countryside, first runs through the Sacco valley, passing through the center of Cassino; enters Campania staying in the Alto Casertano and joins with the Via Appia in the minicipality of Pastorano in the province of Caserta. The current route is about 200 kilometers long.
Rome is an enchanting city, rich in culture, history and monuments everywhere. Once considered the center of the world, today it is still able to seduce you thanks to places like Piazza di Spagna, the famous Trevi Fountain, the baroque palaces of Piazza Navona and the Borghese Gallery, where works by Raphael, Botticelli and Canova are exhibited. If Via dei Condotti is the realm of superfine shopping, always in line with the latest fashion trends, Via Veneto still echoes the distant atmosphere of the Dolce Vita, while those who love antiques and painting don't miss a long walk Via Margutta.
Rome will continue to surprise you at the ancient Greek cafe, during the joyful White Nights, in the hcic restaurants of Trastevere, at the Vatican Museums and under the splendor of the Sistine Chapel, an unforgettable journey into the heart of Western civilization.
