      We had a great tour with Gian Marco and Alessio through the park of the aqueducts and over the Via Appia Antica. At the end there was a great panorama of Rome from the Aventine. We received explanations from Gian Marco at several points along the way - from world history to childhood memories, there was something of everything. The only (small) flaw: Due to the uneven roads, the seats of the bicycles rattled deeper and deeper and we ended up sitting like on a children's bike.

      We had a great biking experience! It coincidentally ended up being a private tour with our guide, Fabrizio, and he was very knowledgeable about everything we saw, questions we asked, going our preferred pace, and ensuring our safety on the roads. It's not cheap, but worth the price! We would absolutely take another tour with them!

      Great way to learn things

      Have never tested electric bike before. It was really fun. Also think it was lucky that we took a ride by electric bike when it was as hot as it was. We cycled on narrow roads, lonely roads and a little up and down. We stopped a few times to refill the water bottles and to have our guide talk about aqueducts, ancient graffiti and Via Appia. Very nice to get away from town for a while.
