Full description
Explore the Roman countryside and its remarkable scenery on this half-day cycling tour. Cycle along 2,300-year-old cobblestone roads to ancient ruins. After a short urban ride, you will reach the beginning of the Ancient Appian Way. This was one of the first roads in Rome, also known as the “Queen of the Streets”. Continue to cycle past ancient tombs and the ruins of an imperial palace. As you ride, your guide will share interesting historical facts that will open your eyes to the Rome beyond the monuments. Leaving the Ancient Appian Way, you will follow the ancient aqueducts through the Roman countryside. After a pleasant ride back, your tour ends with a return to central Rome.

      This was our favorite moment in Rome - hands down. Glenn was a really great guide, knowledgeable lovely guy and we really enjoyed sharing this time with him. The e bikes were really easy to ride, intuitive and I loved the 'assist' for the (few) hills. It makes this tour accessible to most all levels of riders! The close up view of the aqueducts, the open air and gorgeous countryside just outside Rome... Super fun and relaxing and informative. Highly recommended.

      Wer Lust auf akktiveres Sightseeing hat - ist hier genau richtig aufgehoben. Auf der alten Via Appia zu radeln, entlang eines Aquädukts sollte man sich nicht entgehen lasssen. Mit den E-bikes ist die Tour auch für untrainierte einfach machbar! Der Tourguide ist ambitioniert, witzig und hat eine Menge Infos zur Geschichte Roms parat! Es hat wirklich Spaß gemacht und trotz sommerlicher 31 Grad war es nicht anstrengend. Ich würde die Tour jederzeit wieder buchen :)

      I offered the tour to my 20 year old son and he really enjoyed it! I offered him four tours in Rome and no doubt this is what will be remembered. Liked the guide very much and said it was very easy to keep up. When he did the tour the group was small, which I think gives the guide the opportunity to set a good pace for the tour. I was really surprised by my son's reaction to the activity.
