Day 1-3: Bike Tour on Appian Way
After spending two solid days touring Rome’s must see sights, go off the beaten path and bike the Appian
Way. The Appian Way is one of Rome’s ancient roads, connecting Rome to the Adriatic Port of Brindisi.
This road was a marvel of Roman engineering at the time it was constructed, 2000 years ago. Today it is a
place for biking, viewing ancient Roman ruins, and taking a break from the hustle and bustle and crowds of
tourists in Rome.
The Appian Way (Or Via Appia) was first used as a military road to the south. First constructions began
under the Roman Censor Appius Claudiaus Caecus (hence the name) around 312 BCE. The road was used
to transport troops and army material from Rome to the front and helped the Romans win many battles in
the south. This opened up new opportunities to extend the road.
The Appian Way was extended to Brindisi where one could set sail for Albania. After the fall of the Roman
Empire, the road fell into decay and it wasn’t until 1784 that the Via Appia was restored; making this the
New Appian Way. The Appian Way Antica (the old one) is no longer in use as such.
Day 4-8: Running through Tuscany/Orvieto
The Tuscany region of central Italy, bordering the Tyrrhenian Sea, is a world famous destination for its
scenery, Renaissance artwork, and — of course — wine. From the leaning tower of Pisa, to the vineyards of
Chianti, to the sparkling coast of Castiglione, the region offers a diversity of reasons to visit. Given the size
and beauty of the region, it’s impossible to cover all the best spots, but we’ve tried to put together a guide to
some of the best places to run in Tuscany.
Your very first glimpse of Orvieto is not something you forget. This tight-packed city is raised high above
the Tiber Valley on a sheer turret of volcanic rock. The old centre’s walls and houses seem to sprout from
the living tufa stone that props the whole place up. Once you’ve ridden the funicular to the top — much
more fun than driving — you’ll find a maze of medieval streets and a cathedral that’s among the great
sights of central Italy. Our runs will consist of sunrise, daytime and evening adventures through winding
roads of green valleys, cobblestone streets and picturesque sights – for which of course stops will be made,
so you can capture through a photograph.
