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.

We have been surprised by the magic places we were and stories told by Sergio. Just out of the city there is another world we would never have found ourselves. Thank you so much for the other story of Rome and the Roman people!

We did this tour as part of our honeymoon plan. Very happy we had this in the plan. The tour was very exciting, and the stories were interesting and filled our imagination. Sergio was very considerate and talented. We got a bunch of nice pictures. You get to see a different side of Rome from the stories and this tour. Highly recommended.

We had our bike tour with Sergio and it was fantastic! He took his time explaining all the stories alongside the history of the Appian way and the first Roman aqua duct. On the way you’ll have the opportunity to taste fresh SPARKLING spring water. You will hopefully have the opportunity to meet his cat with the spirit of Bacchus (you’ll find out more about this, no spoilers). Sergio leaves the lasting impression of Carpe Diem, and so we shall! Bike tour is worth it, you fit a lot in and you don’t need to be an experienced cyclist.

We had a fantastic tour with Sergio! This should be considered an intermediate ride due to occasional mixing with traffic and narrow parts of path, but it is awesome and a really good way to see the Appian Way and aqueduct.

Si vous cherchez une activité en dehors des santiers battus, c est celle qu il vous faut. Sergio est un super guide! En plus d'avoir decouvert de beaux endroits, rencontré le chat Silver et les biquettes, nous avons appris des choses sur l histoire de Rome que le centre historique ne met pas en avant ! Je le referais sans hesiter !
