A general view of the excavations at the "Three Taverns" west of the via Appia (Acts 28:15) near kilometer marker 58 on highway SS7.
The "Three Taverns" is located along the via Appia that Paul traveled on, as a prisoner, to Rome. It is located about 33 miles southeast of Rome, and 10 miles northwest of the Forum of Appius—north of mile Roman marker 32/3. It was a "way station" (mansio) where a group of believers from Rome came to meet Paul and escort him to Rome.
Acts 28:15 The brothers there had heard that we were coming, and they traveled as far as the Forum of Appius and the Three Taverns to meet us. At the sight of these men, Paul thanked God and was encouraged.
