Why Choose It?
- Explore Rome the best way - with the speed and comfort of an e-bike.
- Experience the absolute freedom of cycling through the Roman countryside.
- Customize your bike tour with a catacomb visit or picturesque picnic.
Cycling down the Appian Way is among the best experiences in Rome. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city center, you have free run of the countryside. Explore the environs of this regional park, cycle down its 2,300-year-old path, and feel the breeze cool you down this summer as you journey down the Via Appia Antica.
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 stopping off, however, as this tour is for discovering Rome’s wealth of outdoor treasures.
Venture outside Rome’s ancient walls and hit the ancient highway
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 whose descendants met Hannibal in battle. Make your way along the Via Appia Antica, approaching the best-preserved gate in Rome’s Aurelian Walls, and make your way towards the countryside.
Discover Rome’s ancient ramparts at Porta San Sebastiano
Ancient Rome was surrounded by walls – first the Servian Wall, then the Aurelian Wall. Sections of both survive, the latter obviously bears slightly more fruit. We’ll be visiting the best-preserved section of the Aurelian Wall at the Appian Gate, otherwise known as Porta San Sebastiano.
From here we’ll journey down the Appian Way – one of the first roads leading to Rome. Lined with many pagan and Christian tombs, the Appian Way is incredibly atmospheric. We’ll soak in this atmosphere as we make the scenic journey down its 2,400-year-old Roman cobblestones.
Pass by the Villa of Maxentius, the 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 her tomb. Lord Byron was overcome by its beauty and committed his feelings to verse. Follow in the Romantic poet’s footsteps as its proportions overwhelm you too.
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.
Customize your tour with a Roman catacomb or picturesque picnic
Entry into the San Callisto or Santa Domitilla Catacombs can be added at an additional cost and an additional hour. Your private 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.
Alternatively, should you work up an appetite whilst cycling the Appian Way, the fields that line its sides are the perfect picnic spot. What better stop can there be than delighting in an early Italian lunch or late mid-afternoon pick-me-up whilst gazing upon the Roman countryside teeming with ancient history?

Then we walked through the market to pick out some of the ingredients, the meats and such. Then we went back to their excellent small group kitchen. We had a wonderful time learning from Sara. She taught us to make ravioli and saltimbocca and tiramisu. It was fun and relaxed and extremely delicious. We thought the whole experience was splendid. 10 out of 10. read less - 9/26/2022

We got to try a ton of different food and even returned to one of the restaurants later in the week. The tour groups are kept small, so our group easily got to know each other throughout the tour. We were especially pleased with how accommodating it was: My fiance is a vegetarian and can be a bit of a picky eater, so he had low expectations going in and this ended up being his favorite activity all week! We actually had a couple of vegetarians in our group and there was always an equally hearty substitute whenever necessary. Super pleased with this experience and with Luca! Best part of our week! read less - 9/21/2022

A great evening with plenty of incredible local food and drink and a really good way to meet and get to know other travellers. The small group size made it much more personal and conversation flowed all evening! Sara (our guide) was absolutely amazing - so friendly and chatty, and so full of knowledge about the local food and Rome/Trastevere's history. She could not have been better.
I'll be coming back to Rome and will definitely be booking this again. Thank you so much, Sara, for making my first trip to Rome that much better! read less - 9/21/2022

His knowledge of Italian cuisine was exceptional, especially welcomed because it included more than just the well known dishes. He was funny and friendly, making our time together unforgettable.
Most appreciated was his offer to remain a resource for the duration of our visit with DELICIOUS recommendations off the tourist path.
Well done Luca!!! read less - 9/11/2022

This was my third time to the Vatican but this time I took my adult/teen children and wife and we used a tour guide. It was a small group of 9. Just 2 families. She was great. She does this 4 days a week and all the guards knew her by name. If you want to see the Sistine Chapel, then you have to go early. We were one of the first to enter and with her connections basically did not wait on anything. We also entered a section in the Vatican Museums usually off limits to the public, a section with many animal statues and other mosaics. She gave us so much history and culture. My children said it was AP World History made real. You could tell she truly loved what she did. read less - 8/29/2022

It was a very hot summer day and she always looks for ways to give us the information under the shade before we went into the sun. I highly recommend this company and Martha as well. It was very easy to make the reservation and pay. We took the private tour and was perfect. 3 hours that feel like Half hour . We didn’t do any limes to get into the places. Know that if you go by yourself or in other yours you could be up to 2 hours under the sun to get into the coliseum or forum. I highly recommend the private tour. read less - 8/05/2022
