What You Can Expect

Panoramic Electric Bike Tour of Rome

Enjoy fine views over top Rome attractions on your electric bike tour

Choose a tour time, then meet your guide and hop on your electric bike in central Rome. While designed like an ordinary bicycle, your electric bike has a small motor to take the effort out of cycling up steep hills. Standard bikes are also available.

Through your 12-mile (18-kilometer) ride, follow your guide on a route away from the chaotic traffic, and take in sights such as the thermal Baths of Trajan, Rome Pantheon and the quirky Piazza of the Knights of Malta and Garden of Oranges at Aventine Hill.

Cycle through the alleyways of Trastevere to the Basilica of Santa Maria, and admire city squares such as Piazza Navona and Piazza della Bocca della Verità — home to the curious Mouth of Truth carving.

Stop for a coffee or gelato (own expense) before your ride continues through the Jewish quarter and along the 15th-century Via dei Coronari, one of the most attractive Rome streets. Pass Roman temples, the remains of the Theatre of Pompey at Largo di Torre Argentina square and Parc Adriano for a glimpse of Castel Sant'Angelo (aka the Mausoleum of Hadrian).

Climb Palatine Hill and listen as your guide describes Circus Maximus, the chariot-racing circuit of Ancient Rome. Gaze out over the Roman Forum from Capitoline Hill, and ogle panoramas of Rome and the mountainous landscape beyond it from the top of Janiculum Hill.

After five hours exploring Rome’s hills, follow your guide back to the start point to conclude your tour.

A friend and I were staying in Rome for just two days, so we chose this tour to get our bearings and see as much as we could. Our guide, Frederico, went out of his way to give us a totally unique, honest and informative experience of the city. It really made our trip. Thanks so much!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Absolutely fabulous experience. A small group (just two riders plus the guide), we got a great look at the city. The spots we stopped (for coffee and later pizza) were top notch, and ones that I returned to on my own. This tour made my trip!
I ride a road bike at home, so this was not a stretch. If you haven't ridden in 15 years, this is a pretty technical undertaking. It's not the up- and down-hill that challenge -- although there are hills -- it's the crowds. (I chose a touring bike with an electronic battery "assist", so going uphill was easy.)
Unlike a walking tour, where you are listening to a guide (usually through a headset) while you walk, on this biking tour you ride for awhile, then stop and listen to explanation.
This tour made my trip!

Great way to experience Rome. Aside from wonderful panoramic views of Rome, we took small alley ways into the various sections. We saw sights in Trastevere, toured the Pantheon, and went to the Vatican City. Caution: Some were on electric bikes that lurched forward when the rider tried to slow.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Our Panoramic tour of Rome was outstanding! Gederico the guide was a fount of knowledge and was very considerate of all levels of riders in our group. We learned so much on this tour and saw intimate sights of Rome that normal tours on buses cannot see. I cannot recommend this tour enough and it is enjoyable for all level of riders. Next time we are in Rome we will do a different tour and request Gederico to lead us.

Highly recommend doing this tour. Cycling is not hard but gives you a great view of Rome from many places. Loved cycling thru many piazzas and areas we would not have found..

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Even in the rain this was a highlight of our trip to Rome. Finally we were taken to places off the beaten track. Our guide Matteo had insightful commentary at each sight.

We recently joined Bruno on the Panoramic Bike Tour of Rome. Bruno was a great guide providing us with pointers on how to safely navigate traffic in Rome as well as having great knowledge of what he was showing us. We really enjoyed our time and wouldn't hesitate in taking another trip with Top Bike Rental should the occasion arise. We would recommend these tours to others :)

What a great way to see the sights of Rome. We ride a lot and have ridden in other parts of Italy but were a little hesitant to ride in Rome so I suggested to my husband that we take this tour. It was raining on the day we booked and we were given the option of riding, booking another day or getting a refund. As we had a week in Rome we decided to book another day. While we don't mind riding in the rain we wanted to be able to capture some good photographs. The tour was mostly on quiet streets or pedestrian only streets. We had two guides looking after us, stopping traffic when we needed to cross a busy street. The pace was easy, allowing for beginners and the tour guides were fun and informative. I am so glad we took this tour and would highly recommend it for those who like to ride.
