Why not escape the chaos of the capital for a few hours and treat yourself to an unusual experience? With the Appia Antica Bike Tour you will have the opportunity to test your cycling skills, cycling on the cobblestones of the oldest road of the Roman Empire, and visit some of the most impressive catacombs of Rome.
You’ll get on your bike near the Circus Maximus or, if you prefer, from the Lungotevere delle Armi and enjoy a visit to some of the lesser-known but no less interesting places: spas of elegant beauty, majestic aqueducts and dark catacombs, but also bizarre places, such as the Garden of Oranges, from which you can admire a breathtaking view of St. Peter’s, looking through the keyhole of a gate. Curious, isn’t it?
A few more kilometres and you’ll be inside the Caffarella Park, 190 hectares of greenery where the capital’s millenary history blends harmoniously with nature and where you can ride under the remains of some of the most important aqueducts in Rome.
The local guide who will accompany you on this Appia Antica bike tour will tell you everything you need to know about these enchanting places and you’ll just have to think about enjoying the ride. If you’re afraid of the city’s unevenness, you can opt for an e-bike, whose assisted pedalling will allow you to complete this tour without getting tired.
If your children are less than 9 years old, you can put them in your bike seat for free or, if they are older than 5 years, tow them with the “camellino”, a tow bike specially designed for children. In addition to the bike, the equipment also includes a protective helmet and a padlock, in case you want to take a little walk to take some pictures. In addition, you can choose between two types of tours: the 3-hour tour or the 5-hour tour, which also includes a visit to the catacombs.
