This guided bike tour of Rome will give you a look at the city’s top attractions and most beautiful sights with a local, knowledgeable guide. Most of the bike routes have very limited access to traffic, and some have no traffic at all, meaning you are able to enjoy your ride around the city in total relaxation and safety.

On your 4-hour tour, discover Rome's secret passages through ancient walls and ruins, stopping every now and then for amazing photo opportunities or to enjoy a cappuccino or gelato (not included in the price). 

All tours include a self-guided visit to the Pantheon. A full list of sights visited can be seen below:
  • Trevi Fountain (morning departures only*)
  • Colle Oppio garden and the Domus Aurea (unusual view of the Colosseum)

Participating in a guided bike tour means exploring Rome with an expert guide capable of guiding you in a stress-free way around Rome, where every open square is a discovery, every alley is a surprise and there is an unexpected encounter around every corner.

Please note: Rome's Trevi Fountain is currently under restoration until late 2015. A walkway above the central portion of the fountain will allow you to catch a glimpse of the ongoing work. Water will be drained during the process, but you'll still be able to cast your coins into the fountain for luck.

Michele our guide was informative and a fun guy to spend an afternoon with. We covered a lot of Rome which gave us a great orientation of the city

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

It was a great way to see the city in 4 hours - although it is not for the faint of heart if you don't like or you're not used to being in traffic. Slow speeds of cars and the bikes through the narrow streets help though. Ugo was a great guide and the bike shop logistics and guys were friendly and helpful. There were enough stops to hear about history but not too many that it dragged on. The only suggestion I have to Viator is to provide an address to go to in the confirmation email. Central Rome doesn't help, and I never received an email response from Viator to my inquiry about the address that day or any day thereafter.

The bikes were in great condition. The check in was very easy and fast. The tour started on time. Our guide was very courteous and informative. It was a great way to see Rome in very different way. I recommend this tour, for sure!

A great over view of Rome, our guide, Paul, was entertaining and quite knowledgable of the area. Plenty of stops to see the more important sites. Would highly recommend.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Recommend this tour, one way to see the magnificent buildings and hear the history around them. Our guide was full of knowledge.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

We enjoyed this tour tremendously. It is not for any weak bike riders though! There are several hills and riding on the cobblestone through the streets with traffic can be a little intimidating. However, our tour guide paced the tour for us and we enjoyed every minute!
