Your tour starts when your private guide meets you at your central Rome hotel and gives you a comprehensive safety briefing before you hop on the back of your Vespa. Choosing the best route to avoid any traffic, your guide will take you on a scenic drive, stopping at highlights to explain each hill's history.
Head to Caelian Hill, where you’ll visualize its former splendor at the vast ruins of the Baths of Caracalla. Then cruise down the nearby Appian Way, one of the first paved roads in history. Pass the tranquil Orange Garden on Aventine Hill, and stop to admire an unforgettable keyhole view of St Peter's Basilica at the Piazza of the Knights of Malta. Ride to Capitoline Hill, sandwiched between the Roman Forum and Piazza Venezia, before passing the majestic Qurinal Palace on Quirnal Hill.
After a stop on Palatine Hill for views of Rome's Colosseum, head over to the Aurelian Walls to see the incredible defensive structure that once circled the Seven Hills. The land by these ancient city walls is home to one of Rome's lesser-known treasures, the unique Pyramid of Cestius -- perfect for a photo stop!
Cross the Tiber River to visit Rome's other notable hills, passing the boat-shaped Tiber Island as you go! Stop with your guide to enjoy panoramic views of Rome's churches, piazzas and monuments from Janiculum Hill, and ride to the must-see St Peter's Square on Vatican Hill.
After seeing more of Rome's ancient sights than you could ever expect to see on a coach or walking tour, your friendly guide will drop you off at your chosen central Rome location or your hotel.

Massimilians was a great driver and guide. Even though he doesn't speak much English, he used his iPad translator to try explain to me as much as possible on the places we visited. Tour ended early coz many places were closed. Massimilians made it up by bringing me to places not on the itinerary.

It was awesome; highly recommend and would do it again; Valerio was a wealth of knowledge so it was a great history lesson form an expert as well as a great experience of feeling like a local on the vespa touring around the city and the seven hills. We did this on the list day of our stay in Italy and it was a highlight and a great way to end the visit.
