Full description
Ride a bike from central Rome to the surrounding countryside, and see the ancient Appian Way of the Roman Republic. An experienced guide will escort you along the historic route of Roman armies to discover ancient monuments, natural beauty and much more. Meet your private guide near the Colosseum, the ancient arena of the Roman Republic. Then, pedal out of the city center towards the Appian Way and Appia Antica Park. Pass the ruins of the Thermal Baths of Caracalla and the imposing Porta San Sebastiano gate in the Aurelian Walls. Travel along the Appian Way towards the Catacombs of San Callisto, an ancient funeral area for early Christians and burial site for at least 50 martyrs and 16 pontiffs of the Catholic Church. Continue past the ruins of the Circus of Maxentius, one of the best-preserved of all the Roman circuses, and 2nd only in size to the Circus Maximus. See the mausoleum Tomb of Cecilia Metella and the extensive ruins of the Ninfeum of Villa dei Quintili, an ancient villa built by the wealthy Sextus Quintilius brothers in the 2nd-century AD. Continue to Aqueducts Park to admire the network of overhead channels that carry thousands of liters of water into ancient Rome every second.

Beautiful bike tour

Top guide and great tour

We did the tour with Paul. You couldn't ask for a better guide. Learned a lot and got to know Rome from a completely different side. Clear recommendation for anyone looking for active sightseeing.
