This bike ride after 2 days of walking in Rome was welcome. Our guide Alberto shared with us this interesting experience of getting out of the city center and discovering the beginning of the Roman countryside. Very attentive to our safety and attached to making us discover the places of history encountered on the APPIA ANTICA, Alberto is a very friendly and very professional guide. We had a great day of discovery with him. The visit to the catacombs of San Callisto is definitely worth the detour.

My husband and I did the five hour bike tour, including the San Sebastian catacombs, with Alessio on June 23rd, 2020. Alessio is such an amazing guy…so nice and so fun and showed us all around Rome and educated us on the vast history of Roma. We stopped at a cafe and had a coffee and a panini with Alessio on the way. This was one of the best tours and one of our best days in Rome. Seeing Rome by bike is a great way to explore the city. We highly recommend this tour and we thank Alessio for such an amazing day!

Notre Guide Massi était super, il connaît bien Rome et raconte beaucoup d’anecdotes. La balade débute le long des quais du Tibre et donne l’occasion d’admirer de nombreux monuments sous un autre angle. Ps we problème pour les pauses photo. Il adapte son rythme aux participants (nous rions une famille, mais n’avons pas pu faire l’acqueduc car trop temps ). a ville qui s’ouvre sur la Via Appia est un enchaînement, fini la ville, bonjour les fleurs, les pâturages, les pins. Nous avons pu visiter des catacombes du début du christianisme, ici aussi les enfants ont tout compris. Notre quide parlait français parfaitement, d’origine congolaise. Il aimait bien taquiner er blaquer tout en n’oubliant pss son sujet. Son m est Jacques. Nous avons continué par des paysages superbes, herbes aromatiques, anecdotes de toutes sortes, heureusement la via Appia n’est pas pavee tout le long! En tout nous avons dû rouler 6h au lieu des 5, les heures ne sont pas comptées! Vélos électriques aident bcp
