Ride along one of Rome's most impressive ancient roads with a bicycle tour on the Appian Way. Built in the 5th century BC and running for 330 miles (530 km) across southern Italy, this route takes you through historic ruins of Roman civilization, including temples, catacombs, and even an aqueduct.

Meet your guide at Largo di Torre Argentina, an ancient square surrounded by temples that date back to the Roman Republic, and set off to discover the ingenuity of the ancient engineering around the city. The Appian Way leads you out past ruined monuments, 2 Christian catacombs, and the church that marks the site where Saint Peter had a vision of Christ.

After you depart from the central city, pass through the Roman Ghetto to take a look at the grounds of the Circus Maximus, an ancient chariot-racing stadium. Ride past the Catacombs of San Callisto, the mausoleum of Cecilia Metella, the eerie archways at the Villa of the Quintilii, and Rome's ancient aqueducts before you cycle back to reenter the city.

Great ride throughout Rome and the Appian Road. Our guide was very knowledgeable and courteous. He took some great photos of me and my wife along the way, stopping at key areas.

After they had not realised we had booked the manager managed to get a tour guide. So we waited 30 mins for him to arrive. The actual tour was fantastic and our tour guide was exceptional- very knowledgable !! A great trip after the initial mess
