Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to experience Rome as not many do!

With your Dutch-speaking guide, follow ancient Roman aqueducts.

Fantastic! One climb, the rest is downhill. For dutch a piece of cake used to bicycles, for others I cannot tell. No dangerous roads or crossings. We had to children in the group: no problem. The guide was very good.

We loved this bike ride, we had a lovely guide Matteao who explained so much to us about Rome and Italy, he was so patient with our many questions. The catacombs were interesting and the scenery was wonderful. We loved the stop at the country villa that made cheese. For someone who hasn't ridden a bike much, the 30km was a fairly easy ride. A pleasant change from the hussle and bustle of Rome. Would recommend this tour.
