Three Taverns was a place on the ancient Appian Way, about 50 km from Rome, designed for the reception of travellers, as the name indicates.
Tres Tabernae originated as a post station on the Appian Way, around the 3rd century BC.
Here, the Christian saint Paul of Tarsus, on his way to Rome, was reportedly met by a band of Roman Christians, 53 km from Rome. Others believe that it stood at Cisterna itself, where a branch road running from Antium by way of Satricum actually joins the Via Appia. However, excavations, that took place at km 58.1 of the Via Appia Nuova between 1993 and 2001 revealed a bath plant and some further buildings.

  • It was nice to stop here along the beautiful road where the apostle Paul met friends on his walk to Rome.
  • A pity that it is still closed to the public. I have been going there for 3 years now hoping for its opening. Every time I go there I get chills remembering the apostle Paul.
