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!

Your day tour starts by meeting your guide, who will provide a brief introduction to your electric bike, which looks like a typical bicycle but has a small motor that takes the effort out of pedaling. Then take off along Rome’s historic streets, stopping occasionally for photo ops and to listen to commentary from your guide about Rome’s many famous landmarks. 

Exact routes vary by day, but all of the following sights mentioned will typically be included. Let your bike do the work as you ride up Fagutal Hill (part of Esquiline Hill) for a view of the Colosseum, and then head to the Trevi Fountain, where legend says that if you throw a coin in the water, you are sure to return to Rome someday. Pass by the Spanish Steps on your way to Piazza del Popolo, from where you’ll cycle into the Villa Borghese gardens for a leisurely ride along shady paths.

Stop by the Pantheon, and cross the Tiber River to reach Trastevere, a charming neighborhood whose cobbled streets are lined with bars and restaurants. On your way back across the river, pause to admire Tiber Island before pedaling to Piazza Venezia, home to the extravagant Vittorio Emanuele II monument.

Next up is a break for lunch, which includes either pasta or pizza with a side of vegetables or dessert, plus a glass of wine or soft drink. Then start the second half of your tour at Piazza Navona, known for its Bernini-designed fountains. Ride through Campo de’ Fiori on your way to Piazza del Campidoglio, a 16th-century square designed by Michelangelo. Then pass by the Roman Forum to admire the ruins of Ancient Rome. Lesser-known sights like the Jewish Ghetto area, Pincio gardens and Theater of Marcellus round out this Rome experience.

Your tour ends when you return to the starting point. A stop for gelato is also made along the way.

What a great intro to Rome...cycling is a ground level way to get around. You see a lot more and feel the layout of the city. Fantastic bikes, brand new and easy to manage. I would recommend this tour to 15 years and over as there's a fair bit of traffic and a lot of pedestrians.

Excellent and professional team - all equipment was clean and worked well. Staff were friendly and patient, and most informative on all things modern and ancient about the Rome city and its sights - Bruno was an excellent guide with a great sense of humour and knowledge.

This tour is awesome....Michele was a great tour leader. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. We literally went everywhere on our electric bikes and really saw Rome as it should be seen...

Lots of fun and adventure to be had on an electric bike. We were not tired from cycling up hill or navigating some of the narrow cobbled streets.
