Description

A tailored three-hour tour for a unique experience without the confusion of the city along with an expert
guide to discover the "Queen of Roman roads". Known with this name not only for being the best preserved road to date with long stretches of low clay that will reveal its precious treasures: catacombs, tombs, churches, mausoleums, villas, circuses, milestones, but also for its low traffic making it perfect for cyclists who love to travel along an enchanting road admiring the incredible nature of the Appia Antica Archaeological park. Riding along the Appia Antica Park is like traveling back in time and immersing yourself in nature.

You will leave from Biga Bike, easily reachable by the Metro B Piramide stop, to start your private tour with your guide at the most convenient time for you, to reach in a few minutes time the Aurelian Walls and Porta S. Sebastiano to then proceed along Ancient Appian Way.
