I read several reviews on TA and got confused so this is what we did and had a fab day! - got a taxi at 9 am from our city centre hotel to Porto San Sebastiano, which cost 9 Euro. We couldn't climb the ancient...More

The Appia antica has been pillaged and is in dreadful condition, but it's a unique experience to cycle or walk along this piece of history. The buildings and tombs that once adorned it have been dismantled but you still can find some interesting ruins that...More

We were there few months ago. It is a relaxing park and a very beautiful place to visit. Very nice when you need some time to have you mind free.

Biking the Appian Way was an absolute highlight of our trip to Rome. It can be a little confusing to figure out how to bike it because many guides recommend that you start at a little cafe which is a few miles in and others...More

The easiest way to get to the start of Via Appia Antica is by taxi or Uber especially if you have a few people. Buses 118 and 228, and Archeobus are options but public buses can be sardine-packed and Archeobus costs $15 each. Uber or...More

You could forget you were just outside a huge city, this was so peaceful. Tree-lined and almost rural feel. You can just wander along it for as long as you like and pick where you want to stop off for various points of historical interest....More

Do not miss the Appian Way - a Roman treasure built thousands of years ago. You can walk along the path or cycle, but be warned. The road is very rough, so unless you are an experienced cyclist, walking may be safer. I also recommend...More

Is it advisable to drive a rental car from the airport (FCO) to the park? Is there anywhere to park a car? Will we be far enough outside of Rome to avoid the madness of driving in the city? Would it be better to take a bus from Rome? We're actually trying to visit several sites via rental car (Parco degli Acquedotti, Ostia Antica) before heading into the city.

We just used public transport the whole time. It was part of the fun and the city is quite compact. Most of the time we were on foot. Parking looked restricted at Appia Antica.

We have someone taking us through the Parco. A little confused about getting there. We'll be coming from St. Peter's. Anyone, can you tell me the best way.

Response from Marco M | Property representative |
To get here from St. Peter's you can take Line A of the underground to San Giovanni Laterano and then bus Line 218 to Appia Antica / Domine Quo Vadis.

We will be in Rome mid December and want to add a bike ride onto the itinerary. This is our second time in Rome and have done the big Must See's already. December, although cold is a great time to visit. Nonetheless, how much time should we allow for taking our time and riding a bike through the Appian Way? We already did a Catacomb our last trip so I don't thing we need to do it again. Also, what else would be a good idea to do on this same day either before or after the bike ride? Thanks!

I would suggest allowing 3 hours for the bike ride. I do not know what it will be like during December. Walking tour of Circus Maxentius would be nice to do after.
