What a fun and amazing tour this was! Our guide, Alberto, was so easy to talk to, and had lots of good information and stories to share. Riding the ebike was just fun - amazing how manageable the hills of Rome are with an assist on the bike! The catacombs were incredible to see - and the views from the property housing the catacombs were stunning. I don't think we would have seen any of this part of Rome had we not done this trip, this way. Even the ride from the river, through Rome to get to the Appian way was full of incredible sights. There was a great little restaurant where we stopped for lunch - delicious! Highly recommend this tour if you like bikes and want to see a lot of things in just 5 hours!!

A glorious ride down the River Tiber, past the Roman Circus, onto the Appian Road, into the Catacombs, to a natural spring, and through a forest. Of course, none of this would have meant half as much without our charming, informative, and entirely entertaining guide, Alessia. A wonderful day for my son and me.
