Full description
Explore the Roman countryside and its remarkable scenery on this half-day cycling tour. Cycle along 2,300-year-old cobblestone roads to ancient ruins.

Continue to cycle past ancient tombs and the ruins of an imperial palace. As you ride, your guide will share interesting historical facts that will open your eyes to the Rome beyond the monuments.

    The tour enables you to experience nature in close proximity to the center. The e-mountain bikes were of very high quality and it was a lot of fun to ride them over the sometimes bumpy Via Appia. Elena is a great tour guide and inspires with her narrative style at the various stops on the route. We had the impression of getting to know the “other” Rome, away from the cultural and historical sights and the tourist crowds. We recommend!

    Very fun activity to do. Good physical exertion to lose the extra holiday kilos that can be gained from the delicious Italian food and ice cream, very nice to be outside the busy city. But above all to learn a lot about the development and about the long history of the great city of Rome; and that under the guidance of a very experienced, well historically educated and enthusiastic guide.

    This was our favorite moment in Rome - hands down. Glenn was a really great guide, knowledgeable lovely guy and we really enjoyed sharing this time with him. The e bikes were really easy to ride, intuitive and I loved the 'assist' for the (few) hills. It makes this tour accessible to most all levels of riders! The close up view of the aqueducts, the open air and gorgeous countryside just outside Rome... Super fun and relaxing and informative. Highly recommended.
