Cycling Through The Catacombs


Cycling Through The Catacombs - apian way



Follow our guide on this fun-filled adventure as you cycle on the Appian Way to visit of the famous Catacombs and stop for a drinks and cheese aperitif along the way.



Going deep underground to visit the famous Catacombs is already a fascinating adventure, but reaching them by bicycle along the Ancient Appian Way makes it even better!

Meet our expert guide and hop on your electric-assisted mountain bikes to reach the Catacombs of Rome, located in the Caffarella Park in the outskirts of Rome. With safety instructions in mind, and protections worn (helmet), the tour will lead you along the Ancient Appian Way (a road build during the Roman Empire) to the Aqueducts Park and to the Catacombs.

Taking only cycling paths for a safer and more comfortable cycling tour, you will be able to enjoy being outside of the city and away from the dense traffic of Rome.

Once you reach Caffarella Park, get ready to go underground and visit the Catacombs. This is where thousands of people were buried some 2,000 years ago! All bones have been removed, but the guide will tell you countless amazing and creepy stories about this sacred burial place. Visits here cannot be private, so you will have to join other people for the visit.

On your way back, stop for a cheese and wine snack (soft drinks for children) in the Park. This will give you the necessary energy to finish this fun-filled and interesting cycling adventure.

And to make it extra entertaining for the children, they will each receive a game booklet with questions and riddles to solve.

Visiting the Catacombs have never been as much fun with children!
