ROME TO DISCOVER: CYCLING ROUTES

One way to take advantage of summer and enjoy a nice weekend in Rome is to explore it while riding a bike.

There are many paths you can travel in this way, some of which allow you to explore lesser known areas of the city m, equally striking and in particular allow to visit parks and green areas which other minds would walk farther to reach and perhaps would eventually stand aside and not taken into consideration as travel destinations, or even stages. A nice idea is to get into town by public transport such as buses or trains, then rent a bicycle with which to enjoy walks and visits unusual monuments. An interesting route is the one that provides the route of the various bike paths that are not readily available within the city or those that cross the Tiber from the banks, which in spring are real dives in nature (although they the defect of not being used when river water levels rise because they are completely submerged).

The proposed route is 16 miles but given the numerous works and sustainable you can do is not tiring at all, rather it shows full of ideas and things to see. In addition, the route is slightly downhill with a slip between the level and river and road and winds through sections of bike path, whether made by the famous Sanpietrini and some sudden, quick motion and still be covered in a safe manner, with the slightly uneven road however, all well marked with appropriate directions. This course is very interesting because it provides a particular point of view of the city compared to how you visit and you observe that the usual way from the bottom.

Starting from Ponte Milvio the numerous tracts of newly built bike path lets you pedal to the banks of the Tiber, which allow you to stay in close contact with nature, water and away from traffic noise and all of its tracks as we are talking about are below street level, a privileged point of view, therefore, that allows us to capture the details that would otherwise go unnoticed and sidelined from the great architectural and artistic works of the eternal city. Is in fact reached the prestigious embankments of the Tiber from Ponte Milvio beyond the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Foro Italico and then go through the Tiber by Michelangelo and pass the Ponte Cavour. You will enter the most interesting section is rich in monuments of the entire route that allows you to see Castel S. Angelo and the Vatican. Continuing in the track marked by cobblestone bridge goes Vittorio Emanuele and you can walk along the slopes of the Gianicolo. Crossing the Piazza Sisto you can access Trilussa Tiber Island where they land and then the boats that cross the River. From there, the bike path leads to Portaportese before reaching the viaduct Eur Magliana and reach the station in the same neighborhood.
