Tour description

Looking for the best way to explore Rome and the Appian Way? Look no further than your own private bike tour. Burn off all that pizza and spaghetti carbonara as you explore the ancient environs of the incredible Appian Way.

Discover many other millennia-old monuments during the course of your intermediate-level bike ride. Accompanied by your private, English-speaking guide, you'll be making stops at the Colosseum and Roman Forum to soak in the sights. We won't be going inside though, as this tour is for exploring Rome's wealth of outdoor treasures.

We'll pass several ancient churches, and a number of Roman tombs and ruins as we make our way down the ancient cobblestones of the Appian Way. Here, we'll pass tombs and monuments few travelers to Rome even know exist, but which are some of the most moving. Pass by the Tomb of the Scipios, one of the oldest families in Rome. Admire the Villa and Circus of Maxentius, the Roman emperor killed by Constantine. Cycle in the shadow of the Tomb of Cecilia Metella, a relative of Caesar's ally Crassus, whose wealth is evident from the proportions of this tomb.

Experience an unforgettable Appian Way Bike Tour

This tour will give you perhaps the best views of Rome's ancient hills, as well as the colossal Aurelian Walls that still surround the city. We recommend taking the Appian Way Bike Tour on Sundays and public holidays, as the park in which the Appian Way is situated is closed to traffic. 

Entry into the San Callisto or San Domitilla Catacombs can be added at additional cost. On request, this tour can be customized and instead of the old Appian Way, you can bike through the centre of Rome to admire some of the most famous icons of the Eternal City. This tour can also be customized to include any of the sites and tombs along the Appian Way. Please note that some sites, like the Tomb of the Scipios, are open only with reservations.
