The bike tour was outstanding. All our expectations came through, not in the least thanks to our great guide! It is just incredible to see the landscape turn green after only 10’ … Greet nature combined with pure history: riding on the Via Appia was pure magic. We felt like Livia and Augustus- or at least their best friends ! Whenever in Rome, this is the nr 1 experience.

With a special thanks to our guide Jos , who made from this trip a memory to never forget .

This was one of the best tours we made, not only in Rome but via getyourguide so far.
