Ancient Appian Way: Electric Bike Tour with Catacombs
- Small group
- Duration: 6 hours
We had a great day out, the Appian way is beautiful and full of interesting history, the guided cycle trip included a visit to the catacombs, lunch and the Roman aqueducts. Our guide Paola was friendly, knowledgeable and kept us safe all day. We are already planning to come back and do it again. Trip is suitable for most people who are confident on a cycle, but you don't need to be extremely fit, the electric assist bikes make it possible for most healthy people and if you are fit you can do it on a good quality carbon mountain bike using your own steam.
The tour was fantastic!!! I should be an absolute "must" to any Rome- stay! The route was well selected and the equipment new, in absolute good shape. Our guide was amazing. He showed us so many interesting things, and handled the tour with that much flexibility after due to vovid-19 the catacombs of S. Sebastian were closed, that we really missed nothing and didn't feel that something was skipped! And he had chosen such a nice, small bar for lunch break, we will always remember. A really really great event and experience!!!
I did the tour with my son (10 years) on a Sunday morning and we had a perfect last day in Rome. Our guide was very friendly and professionnal regarding the anecdotes of the history of the Via Appia. Some small parts are a bit more tricky to ride because of the car traffic. Overall I recommand the tour to everyone who can ride a bike.
The best tour to get out of the city and lern about the history of Rome, Via Appia and Aquaducts. The E-Bike ist extremly helpful. Wear sunscreen!!! It'll be hot and sunny. The staff is very nice and helpful. A active day out of the city with spectacular views and a nice history.
We had a fantastic day with Alessandro. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Roman history. The pacing of the tour is perfect! The electric assist bikes make all the difference! Drink the water they give you and fill it up along the way.
