Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

Riding by electric bike is my favorite way to see Rome! The city is hilly, so cycling on a standard bike can be a bit challenging. On this tour you’ll get to see all the main attractions in Rome, too!

What You Can Expect

Rome in a Day Tour by Electric Bike

Visit the Pantheon on your Rome tour by electric ike!

Meet your guide near Rome Termini Station and hop aboard your electric bike – a regular two-wheeled bicycle with a handy electric motor that kicks when pedaling! Riding your electric bike is simple, but your guide will deliver a quick safety briefing session to put you at ease.

Pedal behind your guide through the downtown streets and enjoy plenty of stops to hear stories and trivia about city landmarks. The route varies, but includes all the sites mentioned below as well as a break for gelato. You’ll also have plenty of chances to take photos and chat with other people in your group.

Let your electric bike do the hard work on the way up Fagutal Hill (part of Esquiline Hill) and then stop at the top to admire views of the Colosseum. Throw a coin in Trevi Fountain for luck and marvel at the numbers of sightseers clustered around the iconic Spanish Steps. Continue to Piazza del Popolo, and then enjoy a leisurely ride through the shaded paths of Villa Borghese, Rome’s lovely central park. Pose for photos by Rome Pantheon.

Cross Tiber River to explore the lively neighborhood of Trastevere where pretty ivy-clad bars spill onto the cobblestone streets. Gaze out at Tiber Island as you head back into central Rome and then cycle through Piazza Venezia to see the ornate Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II.

Stop for lunch halfway through the tour and enjoy a primo (pasta or pizza) dish with a side order of vegetables or dessert, plus a glass of wine, water or a soft drink. After relaxing, visit Piazza Navona to see its Bernini-designed fountains, and the cycle through the hustle and bustle of Campo di Fiori into Rome’s historical center.

Pass Piazza del Campidoglio, a gorgeous 16th-century square designed by Michelangelo, and admire captivating sights of Ancient Rome like the Roman Forum with its crumbling ruins.

Other highlights include Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, Pincio gardens and the Theater of Marcellus – one of the city’s lesser-known gems. Your tour finishes back at the start point.

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.

Perfection, the ride was easy by new electric bikes, our guide kept us clear of overly busy areas. He was well informed and happy to share his knowledge. Took us to all the highlights and panoramic views of the city. Lunch was in a more local restaurant on a side street and very good better than the touristy spots, gelato stop was perfect. Don't hesitate if you are thinking about booking this, great value for money and a perfect overview of the city. One of the best things we did in Rome.

Best way to see Rome. What a blast, better than I expected. Awesome lunch, beer and gelato! Tour guide was very patient, knowledgeable and personable. Actually felt like I was doing something healthy although the bikes took very little effort to cycle.

This was quite an adventure. At first we were apprehensive as we rode on crowded streets and in people-filled piazzas, but after awhile, it all become quite comfortable, but you had to be alert. Our guide, Emannuel Sp? was absolutely superb with an incredible knowledge of all the history and monuments of Rome. Also greatly enjoyed our lunch stop at a non-touristy eatery for a great meal. Emannuel also made it a point to bring us to photo ops with the correct sun angle in mind for superb photo-taking.

Bikes are great never felt tired once. Tour is comprehensive with very knowledgable guide who took us off the beaten track and around some of the back streets you wouldn't usually see. Saw most the attractions and was given the history behind each one. Had a very good lunch with wine and an ice cream later in the day. So much better than on foot covering more ground without the route marching you need to do when on a tight time schedule and just on the good side of quirky to make you feel like you did something adventurous. although the traffic is hairy in italy it was the unpredictable pedestrians you had to watch out for.Best bit of our weekend, give it a go you will love it.

I thought I already submitted this review but here it is again:
Daniele and Clemens were both fabulous guides. Both extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. I think we visited every major site in Rome and got to know interesting facts about each from these 2 young men. They managed to safely lead us through the throngs of people on our really fun electric bikes. Lunch was really good too. Lots of very Italian things to sample before the pasta course. Gelato stop was fun too. I'd definitely recommend this.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

This bike tour was our favorite tour while in Rome. Because of the congested streets, by bike you are able to see so much more of the city. Federico was a fantastic guide and supplied so much wonderful information. The bike riding is not very difficult and the hardest part is probably weaving around people walking. Don't hesitate to book this tour - you'll love it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

This was the best part of our trip to Rome. Bruno, our guide, was amazing and very knowledgeable about the city. Since the bikes were electric, being on them for 6 hours (1 hour for lunch) was no problem. If you're in Rome I highly recommend doing this, you won't regret it!
