Cycle all the way to an extinct volcano from Rome.
Starting from outside the Circo Massimo near the center of Rome, we pass through the roman walls and gate of St. Sebastian to reach the Appian Way. Following this old roman road known locally as the “Appia Antica” we continue cycling for approximately 17 miles south east towards the Alban Hills, what remains of an extinct volcano.
We reach the Alban Lake in the crater of the volcano and cycle through the woods of Castelli Romani, a protected park of about 9500 acres stopping to have lunch in Castel Gandolfo. Once the summer residence of the Popes, today its open to public and a visit of the gardens is possibile.
After lunch, we take the train back to Rome.
