My boyfriend and I took this tour along with another couple on their honeymoon-- the small group, neighborhood path and our incredible guide Sara made us feel like an old friend was showing us around one of her favorite places. The Park Appia Antica is not only full of ancient Roman history, but has also been a major hang-out, neighborhood, wartime shelter and road-to-the-city throughout the centuries and it is clearly still a center of Roman life today. We learned a lot, rode bikes with the wind in our hair, navigated a few slightly-more-difficult paths and listened to stories of life in the Roman empire. It was really one of my all-time favorite tours anywhere!

We had so much fun with this bike tour seeing the Roman Aqua ducts, Appia Rd and all the history that followed. Sara our guide was fantastic, she had great patience and answered all our questions, so knowledgeable! We chose this tour because of our 11 year old and this tour was able to accommodate perfectly. Marcos’s crew was excellent. The day we went turned out to be a scorcher day of heat but Marco’s crew had a nice treat at the end to help us recoup. Lots of water stops, Good times, easy going lots of fun. I learned so much about Rome and saw some beautiful countryside.

Just finished a wonderful bike tour with Marco and Marcello. They are great guides, and took the 4 of us on a really fun ride. We saw the Aqueducts, rode the Appian way, had a coffee and saw the ruins and mausoleums along the way. This was by far one of the best things we did while in Rome. Go off the beaten path, see Rome from a locals point of view. Our kids are 11 and 12, and they enjoyed it immensely. Thanks Marco & Marcello!

Did this tour with Marco who was an informative and engaging guide. We toured the Park Antica Appia which is a large open area south of the main centre of Rome. Marco was careful to give us directions on what we were to do and then provided an explanations of what we were seeing along the way. The tour included renaissance and Roman era aqueducts-the later dating back to the Emperor Claudius in the first century CE. the tour passes through open parkland, horse stables, and wide open spaces that are hard to find in Rome. We also rode for about 6 kilometers along the Appian Way––the first of the Roman roads that stitched the empire together. Parts of the original road are still used, along with the ruts from the wagons used to haul food into Rome. Built circa 312-3 BCE, the road is lined with Roman monuments and mausoleums. The final stop along this was a massive mausoleum to a young girl that a later Roman family built into a fortress and thus it is substantially intact. The family controlled this area including a private church until 1859, when the Papacy purchased it. Be prepared for some bumpy parts, so be sure to secure your belongings or risk having them bounce off. The route is free of cars for most of the journey other than short sections at the start and end. Water is provided and there are fountains along the way. About half way there was a stop for bathroom breaks or to get a refreshment. In summary, an enjoyable, informative, and different trip from the typical ride in Rome. Highly recommended.

This was such a special day! Marco is a knowledgeable guide and taught great details about Via Appia. He is from the neighborhood, introduced me to a volunteer that works in the park, and was very patience with my lack of practice biking. The route that they prepare is different to other major companies because he knows the entire park well and this makes the tour very adventurous. The bicycles are excellent and this is a local family business, so if you are interested in exploring via Appia Antica, I recommend to book a tour with Gazebike!
