What you'll do

All roads lead to Rome! If Roman roads are so famous the Ancient Appian Way is the Queen of the Roman Roads and you'll see it exactly as it was 2000 years ago. First we will meet at the Bar and have a coffee before we start. Than we'll bike through a park, to the most ancient Roman road, the Appian Way, with glimpses of rare beauty, and get to the ancient Roman Aqueducts immersed in typical Mediterranean nature. The ride is relaxing, with many stops, the pace is slow, you get to see Rome off the beaten path, enjoying the surprising beauty of mother nature and ancient ruins, just a few kilometers apart from the hustle and bustle of the city center. So GET READY TO RIDE FOR ALMOST 15 KM (10 MILES), through some of the city’s most unique sightseeing, discover hidden spots in nature, see some of the unknown gems of Rome and get back to your place with perfect pictures.

Other things to note:
You will have to be able to ride for 15 km (10 miles), almost all in the plain, part on regular roads (with cars), plus part on unpaved bumping roads. Bring a bottle for water, sunglasses and cream in summer time, a raincoat if rain is expected.

    Vous ne pouvez pas quitter Rome sans participer dans cette expérience. La découverte de la Rome Antique avec Sergio a été le meilleur moment de mon voyage. Sergio est tout-ce qu'on cherche dans un hôte. Il connait parfaitement son matière parce qu'il a l'expérience comme photographe-archéologue. Il est très gentil et accueillant. Il est extrêmement intelligent et passionné par ce qu'il fait, et a une facilité incroyable pour transmettre sa passion. Maintenant que j'ai découvert l'ancienne Via Appia et ses alentours avec lui (comme les anciens viaducs et l'endroit où est née la ville), je me suis rendue compte que je ne pourrai pas avoir visité Rome sans y me rendre. Comme touriste, je sais que c'est facile de se faire une image de la Rome Antique après de voir le Mont Palatin ou le Forum Romain, mais là, on n'apprend pas comment vivait vraiment le peuple romain. Grâce à Sergio, j'ai pu comprendre et voir comment se déroulait la vraie vie de la société romaine. Il connaît des coins et des endroits cachés que je n'aurai pas pu trouver par moi même, et qui sont d'une importance capitale car ils constituent des évidences matérielles de la vie de cette civilisation. Merci Sergio pour cette expérience merveilleuse.

    I had Sergio as my tour guide and he was amazing. This is an absolutely incredible experience that I will recommend to anyone visiting Rome! Sergio’s knowledge is so vast and he is an amazing storyteller. He was also thoughtful and considerate when there were parts that I was unable to bike. I would 100% do this again!!!!
