Tale part in a new experience, cycling through the woodlands and fields of Romes countrysides in the afternoon as the sun sets over the hills.
Experience the magic that is the “golden hour” with the colors tinged in a golden warmth that is made more apparent by the sun setting over the roman countryside.
Take your helmets off for a visit to the catacombs underground, walking through a portion of the 28km long labyrinth of tombs buried under 40metres. Usually lead by a priest from the Salesiani Order, they have been trusted with the upkeep of the Church of Romes official burial ground from the 1st, 2nd, 3rd Centuries.
Once your back on the surface, continue your bike ride to the first section of original stones used to pave the Appian Way, Romes first highway. See the road that would consolidate Romes reign over the southern half of modern day italy. Lined with tombs from ancient Rome and a medievil castel from the Caetani family. Leave the bumpy Appian Way for a smooth asphalted road to get to the aquaducts.
, we stop at Sant Egeria natural spring for a snack break. There is a small market on site plus the possibility of filling up water bottles from the source.
After this enjoyable break for something to drink and snacks, return back the start by continuing to cycle through the Cafarella Valley with its wooded trails and little streams running through it.
Cost: €69/person including catacomb ticket
