This private Appian Way Ebike Tour makes you discover the charm and beauty of the most ancient and important of Roman roads. Built over 2300 years ago and extremely well preserved, the Appia Antica, Regina Viarum (the queen of the roads), was a key connection between Rome and southern Italy, where the commercial routes to Greece and Middle East began. This private Ebike tour of the Appian Way starts at our office, located on Piazza Mattei. Before getting to the Appian Way, you have the chance to stop at the Circus Maximus, the biggest stadium of all time, and enjoy a view of the Palatine Hill. The tour proceed to the Baths of Caracalla, the second largest thermal complex of ancient Rome, and by far the best preserved. From there you head south riding past the Roman Tombs of Scipio and passing the Aurelian Walls through the Porta San Sebastiano, the impressive, largest and best preserved of all Roman gates. From here starts the Appian Way. You continue alongside the road, stopping at the Church of Domine Quo Vadis and at the Catacombs of Saint Callixtus and San Sebastian, to learn about the life of the early Christian communities. From here onwards, the Appian Way has not changed much since the time of the Roman Empire, when it was a popular location to set villas and mausoleums. Here stand the Ruins of the Circus of Massenxius, the magnificent Tomb of Cecilia Metella, and many other highlights, up to the leftovers of the Villa of the Quintili, an ancient Roman villa. This is the farthest point hit on our Appian Way Ebike tour, afterwards you head back towards the office.
