Tour Details

Cycle the Appian Way; an ancient roman road that takes you through wooded forests, along dirt tracks to the Park of the Aqueducts. 

The Appian Way bike tour is made possibile for even the worst cyclist thanks to the use of electric bicycles, a must when you need to reach the top of a hill. The tour of the Appian Way and a trip to the Aqueducts Park in Rome is worth the effort though and we will stop for a picnic along the way.

Source your own food from a farmers market and stop to have a picnic at a natural spring in the area. A great tour for those who want to get out of the city and into the countryside, leaving the chaos of Rome behind and enjoying the fresh air of the Appia Antica regional park.
