Have always wanted to see the ancient Appian Way, and was not disappointed. Had considered a bike tour, but that goodness I decided against it. A very hot day, so we were happy with an air conditioned bus. Serena was a fantastic guide, thoroughly enjoyable day. Highly recommend.

This tour was the only one I found that included the aqueducts and a catacombs tour, and I was not disappointed! I really wanted to see the aqueducts, but they are outside of the city. Not only were the three stops well timed and awesome to see, but the drive was a nice surprise
