Rome Vespa Tour: City Highlights by Night

Enjoy your Vespa tour around Rome by night!

Your experienced guide will collect you from your Rome hotel for your private night tour of Rome by Vespa. After a comprehensive safety briefing, hop onto the back of your scooter with help from your guide and head out into the streets of nighttime Rome. These oh-so-fashionable Italian scooters have been transporting chic locals around Rome for decades, and there’s no better way to experience the city than aboard one!

Rome is a city that truly lives up to its hype, yet its daytime crowds can sometimes hinder you from seeing everything there is to be seen. Lucky for you, this Vespa tour takes place at the perfect time for sightseeing: when the day's chaos has died down, the streets are less busy and the daytime heat is replaced with a more comfortable evening breeze!

Following the best route to avoid any evening traffic, cruise safely through the city streets with your guide, passing opulently illuminated sites and monument-strewn piazzas. Stop at classic Rome show-stoppers like the Colosseum, Pantheon, Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain, and hear tales of the city's colorful history from your expert guide.

Your evening tour continues to Vatican City, where you'll stretch your legs with a stroll around St Peter's Square -- free from the daytime crowds. Along with all the top Rome attractions that you could possibly want to see, your guide will introduce you to some of Rome's lesser-known treasures, as well. Head up Aventine Hill to peer through the keyhole at the Piazza of the Knights of Malta, and admire an unforgettable snapshot view of St Peter's Basilica by night!

After three hours of exploring Rome's beautifully illuminated streets, your guide will drop you off at your Rome hotel or at a central location of your choice.

This is one thing you MUST do when in Rome! Fabulous, fantastic, amazing, I could keep going on. Although our night didn't get off to the best start as our guide Stefano's bike broke down. As there were five girls and only 4 bikes it meant one would miss out but one of my friends got the great idea of breaking up the tour so we each got half the time although I managed to get the whole 3 hours. We were taken to some of the places we'd already been but we were also taken to places that only the locals would know and told things that aren't in any guide book. It truly is the best and most exciting way to see Rome a place that comes to life at night like no other city on earth. Stefano, Gianni, Gigie, Leo and Gigi are great fun especially Leo who is quite cheeky and earned the nick name of 'Bad Boy'. They made our last night in Italy the most memorable of our month long trip. To all the guys on behalf of all us girls I would like to say a big THANK YOU.

This tour is a must do. The sights were incredible, the commentary very informative, the guys Giorgio, Stefano, Leonardo and Gianni were very competent and courteous and most of all the tour was great fun. It was certainly a highlight of our trip to Rome. Thanks to the guys for a wonderful experience. Do yourself a favour - book this tour!!

Loved the whole experience of seeing Rome at night with a local guide while jetting around on a Vespa. Simone, my guide, picked spots to show me that tourists typically might not see. He was a joy to explore the city with.

Brilliant tour with a really good guide. I did this on the first night I landed in Rome and it was great to see all the sights as soon as I arrived and helped me get my bearings in the city. Definitely good to do at night as well - Rome looks beautiful all lit up.

After a six week holiday in Italy, my last night in Rome before returning to Australia had to be something special so I booked the Rome Vespa Tour: City Highlights by Night...I was not disappointed. It was a perfect balmy summer night when my guide Valerio promptly arrived at my hotel at 8pm aboard his stereotypically stylish authentic Vespa. Off we went to see this amazing city by night. The beauty of being on the Vespa is you are still able to talk to each other so I got a wonderful 'mobile' history lesson as we scooted around the streets of Rome. Valerio is a very knowledgable guide and took great pride in showing me his city. At all times my personal safety was paramount and it was a fantastic history lesson from a totally different perspective. Rome is beautiful by day but stunning by night. The tour included parts of the city that I hadn't had a chance to see including the Key of Malta, the first road to Rome as well as the standard favorites including the Spanish Steps, Vatican, Palatino, Colosseum. And no day in Italy is complete without a gelato so it was a fitting end to the trip to enjoy a delicious handmade gelato. The three hours went way too quickly but I can't recommend this trip highly enough. It was the perfect way to see one of the world's most beautiful cities, away from the double decker buses, queues, heat of the day and there's something particularly special being shown a city by someone who lives there. This was the ideal way to finish my first time to Italy and I am very grateful to Valerio for being such a fantastic guide.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better April 2013

It was ok, but for that price a more enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide would be expected.
