One of the earliest and most important roads built by the ancient Romans, the Appian Way is lined with tombs and monuments dating to 310 B.C. Cycling and in-line skating are permitted along the road.
Cycling is a great way to see Rome--in the city, many of the ancient roads are too narrow to be accessed by car, and there's too much to see to cover it all on foot. Companies such as Top Bike Rental offer guided tours and bike rentals.
