Buongiorno Roma! E-bike Tour at Dawn

If you're tired of the same old bike tours, on squeaking uncomfortable bikes, packed in big groups where you're just a number, then this is the tour for you! <br>Cycling in the morning light will be something special, and the sunrise on the old Roman ruins with no crowd is something you'll never forget. Our ride will be almost effortless, thanks to the top-end KTM pedal-assist mountain bikes I'll provide you, and the small groups (maximum four people) will make the tour safer, like riding with friends.

Due to the Covid-19, the Saracen Tower and part of the Museum are closed, and there are no guided tours. However, the entrance still costs €8. Quite expensive, for what is currently possible to visit and see. Visiting the castle and the museum in the summer with a mask on the face, all windows closed and no air conditioning, was a real pain. A few areas of the Castle are used as a hotel, improperly called "Ostello" (Hostel), and therefore are accessible only to its clients. This is quite annoying. The "borgo" (the tiny medieval village inside the castle walls) is nice and very interesting for whoever is willing to understand what is a "human-centered" urbanisation; the castle beautiful; the museum shows the amazing techniques and endeavours ancient sailors pursued more than 2000 years ago (and probably had visited lands and territories that were "re-discovered" starting from the end of the XV century onwards). The Etruscan-Roman Pyrgi ruins outside the Castle seem abandoned. All things considered, although being expensive, it is an interesting place, but it is definitely not the right period to pay a visit to the Santa Severa Castle. PS: it is quite easy to get there by train.

We traveled here from Santa Marinella. You can take the train and then it's a fairly short walk to the castle (close to a mile) The castle had tons of history and we were able to walk freely about in most areas. There was no guided tour, but everything was nicely labeled and they had signage everywhere. They had an awesome exhibit showing a discovered tomb shown through a glass floor. We did the virtual reality movie, but it was all in Italian. It was still pretty cool. We enjoyed a snack and birra after our time there at the small cafe on the grounds.

I have enjoyed the beach at Santa Severa a few times, but now that the castle is open, it makes for a truly memorable day trip. You can walk around inside a limited portion of the castle for free, but a ticket lets you into the exhibits about castle history, archaeology, and nautical history, plus additional, rotating exhibits. When I was there recently (August 2019) there was a special costume exhibit. Most of the signage is in English as well as Italian. Children under 18 are free. The ticket also lets you into the museum bathroom, which is great for changing in and out of your swimsuit (so you don’t have to use the port-a-johns.) On the grounds outside the castle, there is some interesting information about the Etruscan history of the area. Also right outside the museum entrance is a nice snack bar that also serves lunch and dinner for a reasonable price. (Note - cash only.) And, for a decadent luxury, you can spend the night at the hostel inside the castle. This is one of our favorite day trips whenever I am in Italy, and for my teenagers, the combination of the castle and the beach was the highlight of our most recent family vacation.

Nice sea views which is a positive. However not much else. To be fair it was being set up for a concert at the time so it was difficult to see it at its best. Not sure I would rush to see this.
