    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.
