This private Appian Way Ebike Tour makes you discover the beauty of the most important of ancient Roman roads, built over 2300 years ago and extremely well preserved, the Appia Antica, Regina Viarum (the queen of the roads). It was a key connection between Rome and southern Italy, where the commercial routes to Greece and Middle East departed from.
We start at our office, located on Piazza Mattei, and before getting to the Appian Way, you stop at the Circus Maximus, the biggest stadium of all time, and enjoy a view of the Palatine Hill.
The private Appian Way Ebike Tour then proceeds to the Baths of Caracalla, and heads south riding past the Roman Tombs of Scipio and passing the Aurelian Walls through the Porta San Sebastiano, the largest and best preserved of all Roman gates. From here begins the Appian Way. We 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.
Next stop of this Appian Way ebike tour is at the ruins of the Complex of Massenxius, and we get to the magnificent Tomb of Cecilia Metella. Alongside the road, stand many tombs and ruins, up to the remains of the Villa of the Quintili.
