Emanuele was an excellent memorable guide and a local to appian way area. We were lucky to have him to ourselves on a Sunday and get a personalized tour. The biking paths were so so fun! He was very informative and also took pictures and video along the way. Thank you so much! Highly recommended

A great way to escape the crowds and head out of central Rome to see some of the lesser know sites, like the aqueducts and Via Appia Antica. Great fun riding along the Tiber path on the e-bikes, which were well maintained and in great condition. I'd thoroughly recommend for the active traveller!
