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.
