What you'll do

I know, Santa Marinella is known as a beautiful little town on the seacoast, with its beautiful historical houses from 1920's and the best sea within an hour from Rome. Guess what: it is true! But not exhaustive, because this beautiful town lies directly on the southern slopes of the Tolfa Mountains: that's why is also one of the best places in central Italy for Mountain Biking! Just a few pedal strokes and we will enter one of the best preserved natural areas of Lazio region, with acres and acres of untouched nature, mountains, animals in the wild and archaeological treasures from etruscan, roman and middle age. The climb is steep, but with pedal-assist Mountain Bikes I'm providing you, it'll be easy enough to allow us enjoy the beauty that is surrounding us. Once at the top, we'll have the chance to rest a little bit and enjoy the astonishing view on the coast, the volcanic dome called Mount Tolfaccia (don't worry, this is dormant since 23 million years...) and the ruins of the homonymous roman villa built in II Century A.D.
The way down to Santa Marinella will be amazing: we will have the chance to appreciate beautiful panoramas, the typical nature of the area and some untouched samples of Mediterranean bush. A bit bumpy at the end, but we're not racing: we can walk our bikes if we need to. Finally, a short ride through the historical part of Santa Marinella and a drink!

Hi, my name is Emanuele!
I'm a licensed MTB tour guide, founder of my small company, MTB2GETHER E-BIKE TOUR. I've been sharing for almost three years -with travelers from all over the world- my great passion for mountain biking and a huge love for my territory. I like to spend my time on a bike venturing on new paths and hidden places, that's why I know trails, hidden beautiful spots, forgotten archaeological sites of my area like the back of my hand. So let me bring you around the beautiful nature and the history of Santa Marinella and Tolfa Mountains while I portray stories and anecdotes about these places that only a few locals know...

More tips

This is a mountain biking tour of 30 km/19 miles with 800 meters elevation gain. Develops almost entirely off-road, a bit bumpy in some sections. Not hard, but requires a bit of preparation and a minimum experience on riding off-road. You must wear closed-toe shoes, and use a backpack for your goods

What to bring

wind jacket, sunglasses, water, closed-toe shoes, a dry shirt to better enjoy our aperitivo at the end of the ride

Backpack is the best way to bring your stuff with you during the ride. Shoulder bag is not a good idea when mountain biking!
