Take a bike tour to the Volcanic Hills south east of Rome for a day tour.
Following the Appian Way to the south from Rome in the direction of the Lazio Volcano will lead you to the volcanic lake of Albano. Once a source of water for the ancient romans, this lake today is home to many small towns and a papal village overlooking its waters from up high.
The culture and traditions of the Castelli Romani as they are known locally, is still evident as many of the towns celebrate a speciality: White Wine from Frascati, Porchetta from Arriccia or Strawberries from Nemi, not forgetting Castel Gandolfo which is famous for its Papal Villa and Gardens.
So having cycled the Appian Way from Rome, we will arrive at the lake settled in the crater and then cycle up to Castel Gandolfo for lunch. Its possibile to go cycling through the woods of Castelli Romani, a protected park of about 9500 on our Overnight Bike Trip (please see Deviations/Adaptions).
For the remaining time available, we can take a stroll through the Pontifical Gardens of Castel Gandolfo if you choose this option when booking.
Otherwise its a downhill ride back into Rome along the Appian Way.
This tour can also be combined with a visit to the following areas:
