Meet your guide and small group at a central Rome location (address shared after booking), and pick up your electric, pedal-assisted bike and helmet. If the hilly journey through the Roman countryside doesn’t intimidate you, regular bikes are also available.
Led by your guide, you will ride to the beginning of the Ancient Appian Way, from which point you can relax and enjoy the scenery and the riding ease of the assisted bike. Get views from the ground up without the barrier of a tour vehicle window between you and the scenery.
Learn about the history of the Appian Way, constructed in 312 BC, through your guide’s informative commentary. Cycle around the area’s most important landmarks, such as the Caracalla's thermal baths, the Circus of Maxentius, the Aurelian Walls, the Tomb of Caecilia Metella, and the monumental Aqueducts of antiquity. Listen as your guide sheds light on the history and significance of the ancient sites.
In the longer version of the tour, stop at the San Callisto or San Sebastiano catacombs—built in the second century and named after the deacon St. Callixtus—and explore the underground tunnels with your guide. Learn their fascinating history and gain insight into ancient Roman burial traditions.
Return to your central Rome meeting point with a deeper understanding of ancient Rome and its traditions, history, and culture.
