    Alessandro, the guide was absolutely amazing. He was extremely personable and informative. The tour was tremendously fun, very easy on the ebike (especially for myself who hadn’t ridden a bike in 4+ years). I would suggest this tour to anyone who wanted an activity in Rome that would take you off the normal paths. It’s a great way to spend 6 hours.

An unusual path and a greater contact with Roman life and culture than the classic tourist destinations. The Appian Way is literally fascinating and the explanations of the guide to the various stops, where things have happened, give shape and substance to the memories linked to school studies, especially those of elementary school.

Wonderful tour! Just do it, even if you're afraid you're out of shape! You only need to have basic bike riding skills. The e boost will push you up hills with minimal effort. The aquaducts and so interesting and guide Damiano did a fantastic job!!!

With a special thanks to our guide Jos , who made from this trip a memory to never forget .

This was one of the best tours we made, not only in Rome but via getyourguide so far.
