Rome City Bike Tour

Rome City Bike Tour

Meet your guide at a central Rome location to start your city bike tour that takes in main attractions and picturesque sights. Most of the routes you’ll follow are limited to traffic—some have no traffic at all—so you can enjoy a relaxed experience.

In addition to the famous attractions included in your biking itinerary, such as Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Navona, Venezia Square and Capitoline Hill, with a view of the Roman Forum, your guide will also highlight lesser-known spots like hidden passageways and ancient walls, and will stop occasionally so you can enjoy photo ops or refuel with a gelato or coffee (own expense). When you reach the Pantheon, stop for a chance to go inside the temple, where you can look around briefly on your own.

My wife and I have been to Rome in the past. Never did we experience Rome the way we did the last trip going around Rome on a bike. Definitely worth the experience!

we had a great day out in full sunny day in November. We were 2 sisters celebrating our birthdays in Rome. We are both bike enthusiast and a the Rome city bike tour was definitely on our list whilst on holiday. Michele was out bike tour leader. Great guy, very motivated and knowlegable. We visited most of Rome's Highlights. Narrow quaint streets simply beautiful. We will come back again and book another tour! thanks

Excellent bike tour of Rome that we took in Sept2015. Our Guide Valeria was so friendly and knowledgeable about the city. The bike tour winds you thru hidden back lanes and streets and away from the busy roads so you feel very safe on the bikes, yet they get you up close to the main tourist spots of the Spanish Steps, Trevi fountain and so many other spots we never knew about. Highly recommend this tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed our bike tour, and were able to see a lot in quite a short while. We saw all the sights promised from a more interesting perspective, and our guide was excellent.

What a great way to see Rome and be active at the same time. The guides were excellent. We didn't hear about this company until a few weeks before our trip. We wanted the all day tour but it was booked up. The half day tour was fun too but my recommendation is don't wait to long to book the bike tour.

The bike tour was awesome. Our guide, Fredrico, was really knowledgeable and sweet. The bikes were high quality and accomodated my children as well ages 8 and 10. It was the best way to see Rome! Highly recommend!

What a great way to see parts of Rome you'd never normally see. We toured the city the previous day on the hop-on hop-off bus but you can only see so much that way. Biking round the city is the best method in my opinion especially in the company of a guide ours was Bruno who was very friendly / knowledgeable who knows where to take you and the best routes avoiding busy roads - if you can pedal a bike then you should be able to manage this tour with no problem in the safety of a small group.
Rome is an astonishing city, almost overpowering if you only have a few days in which to see the sights. A fascinating mixture of history and modernity, we will be back some day to take it all in again.
We've been on quite a few city breaks over the years but this one is on another level !

We saw an extraordinary amount of the city in what seemed like a very short time. Our guide Federico was low key but extremely knowledgable, full of facts and tips. The cycling was easy despite the quality of Roman drivers! I'd recommend this tour to just about anyone who can pedal a bike.
