Construction began on the road in 312 BC to link Rome to Apulia in southern Italy, and it soon became one of the most important roads in the Roman Republic.

Stop at the San Callisto catacombs — built in the 2nd century and named after the deacon St Callixtus — and explore the underground tunnels with your guide. Learn of their fascinating history and gain insight into ancient Roman burial traditions.

After cycling approximately 19 miles (30 km) along the Appian Way, travel back to central Rome to conclude your tour.
