The electric bike ride (January 1 ...) was really extraordinary. First of all, instead of the 3 hours advertised, we did 4.5 hours of ride, on recent and well-equipped bikes. The circuit was well diversified, starting with a crossing of the historic city, to then join the Via Appia and stroll there under the sun, while listening to the explanations or anecdote of our guide. A special mention for Philippe, our multilingual guide that day, passionate and particularly sympathetic. I highly recommend !

Our Guide Massi was great, he knows Rome well and tells a lot of anecdotes. The walk begins along the quays of the Tiber and gives the opportunity to admire many monuments from another angle. Ps we problem for photo breaks. He adapts his rhythm to the participants (we laugh a family, but could not do the aqueduct because too much time). he city that opens onto the Via Appia is a chain, the city is over, hello flowers, pastures, pines. We were able to visit catacombs from the beginning of Christianity, here too the children understood everything. Our guide spoke French perfectly, of Congolese origin. He liked to tease and joke while not forgetting his subject. His name is Jacques. We continued with superb landscapes, aromatic herbs, anecdotes of all kinds, luckily the Via Appia is not paved all the way! In all we had to drive 6 hours instead of 5, the hours are not counted! Electric bikes help a lot

Very nice to go through Rome by electric bicycle/mountain bike. First along the Tiber, then through the city and then through the interior. I would choose the Catacombs, Via Appia and also the aqueducts. If you've booked the aqueducts, make sure they don't forget. That would be a waste. The tour guide was sometimes a bit difficult to understand, but otherwise a very nice excursion.
