Appian Way Picnic

Take part in the Appian Way Bike Tour following the path of an ancient Roman road on the way out and the path of the Aqueducts on the way back.

Stop along the way during the bike tour to visit the catacombs of St. Callisto and the tombs of the ancient romans dotted through the countryside.  This is our complete tour of the Appian Way and combines all of the areas of interest in the Appia Antica regional park with a Picnic Lunch* at the natural spring Santa Egeria.

*The Picnic lunch is composed of locally sourced produce such as cheese, wine, olives, fruit, bread, cured ham and mineral water. Alternatives organised for wheat allergies and in the event of bad weather.

    This was our second tour with Glen and we thoroughly enjoyed both. The catacombs are a must see and what better way to go than by bike. The tour is fun and the cycling not to tough. Our 12 year old coped fine. Glen is an excellent guide and very personable. We rode along paths and tracks you’d never visit any other way. If you want to get away from the crowds take this tour, you won’t regret it!
