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.

Absolutely fantastic. I am an unfit 47 year old and went with my 76 year old dad and we found the cycling easy with the electric bikes. Daniele was very entertaining and the lunch was yummy and plentiful.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

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.
