What You Can Expect

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.

See the Itinerary below for a full list of sights.

Absolutely brilliant. My 11 and 13 year old really enjoyed it too. We learned alot of history and saw all the sights through little quiet streets and of course some busy piazza too.

Biking through Rome is such a great way to see all the sites in a short period of time. Booking through Viator has made everything so much easier. The company that we took the biking tour were professional and helpful. The bikes were of good quality and the guide, Ricardo, was helpful, friendly and informative. The highlight of our trip! Highly recommended!

This bike tour can be summed up as follows...we rode, we learned, we saw, we conquered! We loved it! Our family of four joined Imke for the 4 hour tour of Rome and we saw everything and learned historical information to put it all into perspective. It is the absolutely perfect way to see Rome, especially with kids / pre-teens. There were no boring lines or lectures...we were outside and constantly moving. It is the MUST DO way to see Rome.

I'm so glad I did this. It's a very interesting way to see Rome,and our guide is very responsible and knowledgeable. You won't regret it !

Ambra was our guide. She was very knowledgeable, and I felt this was a great way to see a lot of sites in the heart of the city. We had been in Rome about four days by the time we took this tour, so we had already familiarized ourselves with the area. Still, I enjoyed riding the bike around and being able to recognize where we were going.

I haven't been on a bike in about 15 years, so I was very nervous and uncomfortable at first. I don't think the tour guide or company catered to my worries, but I grew more comfortable as we continued the tour. I think the tour is likely appropriate for 12-14 years old and older, but wouldn't recommend it for younger kids.

Definitely a highlight of our trip to Italy! So many great spots to see, not bad for hills at all so anyone from any fitness level would be able to easily do this trip. Must do!
