Ancient breezes - EBIKE Touring!
FEEL THE WIND IN YOUR HAIR, AND TOUR ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST HISTORIC ROADS ON AN EBIKE!
Have you heard of the Via Appia Antica?
Well… you should, because it’s one of Rome’s most noteworthy ancient roads, and in just a few short miles you’ll be treated to spectacle after spectacle that makes ancient life come alive! (some of them even rival the better-known attractions)
The Via Appica Antica is truly a snapshot of life in Ancient Rome. - A short trip down the original cobblestones puts you face to face with almost every kind of ancient structure under the sun!
Eons-old bathhouses ... tombs of famous people ... masoleums … well-preserved stadiums … natural surroundings ... etc ...
The road itself is a critical piece of Roman history, and has served as an important thoroughfare reaching far back into the ancient world.
It’s even rumored to have spots where the man himself, Jesus Christ, walked and talked on this Earth.
That’s why it’s a great addition to the better-known spots… it’s almost as if you can meander through time itself, on the orignal road, without the influence of modern life quite so close.
Here’s how this e-bike tour really shines:
You get to traverse about four miles of the ancient road, and really feel up-close and personal with the locale. - With the wind in your hair, and the uninterrupted sightlines on this bike tour, you get a little fresh air you need while in Rome, along with a refreshingly different kind of sightseeing.
And since you’ll be using an “ebike,” don’t think this will be a strenuous trip. Nope, just a relaxing jaunt where you can pedal a little, and ride a lot… giving you the freedom to relax, breathe and take in the beautiful ancient scenery.
Your guide will stop often and regale you with a collection of insights and stories from this infamous road, which has played a primary role in the development of Rome, and continues to be culturally significant to this day.
And perhaps best of all… you’ll get to FEEL the distance and the depth of the well-trodden history that surrounds you, as you get a nice bit of exercise and balance your sightseeing routine with a slightly more physical activity!
Helmets, ebikes, and a fantastic guide are all included… so if you’re looking to plan the perfect compliment to all those museums and restaurants, look no further.
