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
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 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.
I did this 7 hour tour my first day in Rome. Great way to get acclimated! Emanuel was my guide and he was so entertaining and knowledgeable. He did his best to keep us hydrated (it was very very hot in August!) and also made sure we were always safe. He pointed out monuments that I may not have noticed. He told us history you probably wouldn't find in a guide book. We had a delicious lunch and later a gelato stop. He was always ready to take a picture for you or answer questions. I would highly recommend this trip, especially if you are in Rome for a short time. I used the electric bike option which was really nice. You still exercise, but the little boost up steep hills was very nice in the Rome heat! At the end of our tour Emanuel highlighted the route we took on a map and gave it to us to take home - such a nice touch! Next time in Rome I will definitely check out another bike tour. Don't miss this!
We had so much fun. It was a great wAy to see all the sights and get an overview of the city. Our guide was fantastic.
