Visit ancient Rome by cycling through the Appia Antica Park
The Via Appia Antica is one of the main streets built in Rome and is still in perfect condition. This historical street crosses a beautiful park where the catacombs, mausoleums and churches emerge. The electric bike tour, accompanied by a guide, is undoubtedly the best way to visit this particular area of the city. Have fun and relax by cycling through the particularly beautiful natural park surrounded by ancient monuments whilst sampling the atmosphere of ancient Rome.
The Via Appia Antica was built between the 3rd and 4th centuries BC to connect Rome with Brindisi. This important military and commercial communication route is a miracle of engineering of that time, just think that after 2000 years it is the only road in Rome that does not get full of holes after storms! A very important historical episode was the crucifixion of more than 6000 rebel slaves led by Spartacus along the street as a warning to all citizens. With the end of the Roman Empire, the street fell into disuse until modern times when the Regional Park was established for its protection.
