    If you’re looking for something a little different than walking around Rome’s fantastic monuments then I’d highly recommend this tour out of the main city to see the aqueducts. The ride was easy - yes even the Roman hills - thanks to the e-bikes and Isabel was a fantastic guide who constantly ensured everyone was ok. Even my family members who are very occasional bikers were ok riding this tour and proclaimed it a great late afternoon out and well worth the saddle sores!

    We had an unforgettable time with the team on the Via Appia, good humor, kindness and a great electric bike. Never used until now, it's just too great. The sequence of sublime landscapes, visit of the catacombs, a moment of additional knowledge. Thanks to Léopolde, for all the information he gave us on the road depending
