Route Guide

Traveling along the Via Appia Antica by bicycle is one of the must to visit Rome in a green way. The cycle route we propose starts from the rental point on the Appia Antica, crosses the first section of the Regional Park, discovering Mausoleums, Catacombs and Churches, before reaching the center of Rome and returning to the starting point again via the Via Appia Antica. Once in the heart of the Eternal City, let yourself be moved by the main monuments such as Castel Sant'Angelo, Pantheon and Colosseum; take all the time you need before resuming the Via Appia Antica and returning to the starting point.

Did you know?

If you visit Rome, you will surely hear the expression "go around the seven churches" to jokingly indicate a long journey. In fact, starting from the early Christian era, the most devoted pilgrims made a loop route of about 20 km that touched some of the main churches of Rome. The itinerary - relaunched and consolidated in the 16th century at the instigation of San Filippo Neri - included the four papal basilicas (San Pietro, San Giovanni, Santa Maria Maggiore and San Paolo fuori le Mura) and the churches of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, San Lorenzo fuori le Mura and San Sebastiano fuori le Mura.
