Description

Explore the Roman countryside on a quality E-Bike with anti-puncture tires and a comfortable saddle. Enjoy an open air experience in the company of an expert guide and in maximum cycling safety, as you navigate the great highlights of this archeological area: the millennia-old Appian Way, the great Aurelian walls, the towering Roman Aqueducts, an Imperial Villa and countless remains of ancient Roman funerary practices. You will leave the city through St. Sebastian's gate and set out on the 2400-year-old Ancient Appian Way. The great extension of this open-air museum, peppered with mausoleums and villas, will tell the fascinating story of Rome's rise and fall. You will bike through vast areas hiding miles of underground Catacomb tunnels (and on the 6-hour version of the tour, you will stop for a guided visit there). As you continue, you will reach the Park of the Aqueducts, where monumental arches - once bringing in enormous quantities of water into Rome - loom over the landscape in the afternoon glow. Return to civilization through the green Caffarella Valley, a patch of true Italian countryside in the midst of the city. Choose from a shorter (4-hour) or longer (6-hour) duration tour, based on your schedule. The itinerary of the two versions is nearly identical; however, the longer tour includes a guided visit inside the early Christian Catacombs.
