We did not rent any bikes we juat walked up and down Via Appia, admired the ruins and took in the spirit of the place. It's quiet, a blessing to go there after crowded and noisy Rome. You also get to see some very fancy...More

We visited via Appia Antica on my birthday, my choice of activity for the day. I was not disappointed! It was a pleasant walk through the countryside, and the historical value of the original road sections - as well as the old buildings, landmarks, and...More

We hired two bicycles with kids seats and had a great day at Appia Antica. We cycled through the Parco Regionale dell'Appia Antica until Cecilia Metella.

Take the 118 or 660 bus to the San Sebastian catacombs. Hire a bike or walk away from Rome and the quiet interesting section of the road not towards Rome on the busy, scary bit! Take water with you but you can refill at lots...More

We had a brilliant few hours riding bikes on the Via Appia Antica. However, we found it very difficult to research the best way to plan how to get there, and what to do on our visit, despite extensive "Googling". I wasn't happy about taking...More

We cycled down via appia antica. Beautiful day with lots of sunshine. First 8 kilometers is like cycling in an open air museum. Amazing to see the original road. You can almost feel the old romans riding horseback towards Rome :-). Last 8 km is...More
