Route Guide

This half-day route crosses the Roman countryside, you will travel along a path whose history dates back to 312 BC. On your journey, explore some historic sites along the Appian Way, enjoy great views (great for taking photos), and continue to Roman burial sites. Plus, get excited as you pedal alongside Rome's ancient aqueducts in the Parco degli Acquedotti. This itinerary will give you a deeper understanding of the history, nature and art of the Eternal City. Finally, head to the Caffarella Park and the Tor Fiscale Park! Here you will be pleasantly enchanted while you are immersed in the splendid nature of the Roman countryside. Make sure you take some photos before returning to the starting point.
