See Rome by Bike
Written by Viator, May 2012
Panoramic Bike Tour of Rome
You’ll get some very special views of Rome on this tour across the hills that Rome is known for. From above the city, you can see the most important domes and monuments from a unique perspective. An experienced tour guide will lead you through parks and gardens such as the Garden of the Oranges for “the romantic view of Rome”, and up the Aventine Hill, the Janiculum Hill, the Capitoline Hill and more. At the top of Aventine Hill you’ll go to the site of an old palace and get to peek through the famous Aventine Keyhole which looks directly at the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica. Other highlights include panoramic views of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. You’ll also pass Castel Sant'Angelo (Mauseleum of Hadrian), Navona Square and the Pantheon.
Rome City Bike Tour
Discover must-see attractions in Rome’s Historic Center while along with some of the secret small streets and alleyways most tourists never see. You will leisurely ride past the traffic to see sights like the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. You will bike through the secret passageways of ancient walls, stopping for photo opportunities, and take a tour through the Pantheon, one of Rome’s best-preserved ancient monuments. See an unusual view of the Colosseum from atop Fagutal Hill and cross the bridge to Tiber Island, connected to the mainland by the Ponte Fabricio, which is the only original bridge left in Rome. It’s a fun and relaxed introduction to Rome’s well-known and secret monuments.
Ancient Appian Way, Catacombs and Roman Countryside Bike Tour
If you want to escape the crowded city and experience Rome’s surroundings as an ancient Roman would have, this is the perfect way. It has long been said that all roads lead to Rome, and with this tour you can travel along Via Appia, the 2,300 year-old cobble-stone path into the city, while seeing ancient ruins and beautiful landscapes along the way. This tour includes a guided visit of the Catacombs of San Callisto, which contains frescoes from the beginning of Christian history, and a break at the lovely Caffarella Park for a cheese and wine aperitif. You'll see many other sights including Trajan's Thermal Baths, the Aurelian Walls and aqueducts.
