By quality Electric-assist mountain bike

Pedal on the Ancient Appian Way, a 2300-year-old cobblestone Roman road while going past ancient Roman ruins, statues, an imperial palace, Christian catacombs and pagan mausoleums. Then leave the "Regina Viarum" to cycle towards the Roman aqueducts rising over the fields on the horizon and follow them on their way back to the center of Rome.

Leave the bustling city center of Rome behind and enjoy a bike ride through the Roman countryside, which inspired 19th-century travellers such as Byron, Goethe and Stendhal. On this extraordinary bicycle tour of absolute beauty we take you on a journey through a unique landscape where nature, farmlands and ancient history meet. This tour goes 60% off road, along dirt tracks and small paths

Please note that approximately 40% of the route of this tour takes place in the city. We ride carefully chosen city streets, but some traffic is unavoidable to connect the Ancient Appian Way Park to the Aqueducts Park. In the remaining 60% of the route (riding in the parks) we encounter no traffic.

We offer two versions of our Appian Way Bike Tour: a 6-hour version and a 4,5-hour version. The two itineraries are almost identical, and so is the distance traveled, which is a total of approximately 27km (17 miles). The longer tour also includes a guided visit to the catacombs of San Callisto (San Sebastian on Wednesdays).
