Your Rome bike tour starts near Piazza Venezia, where you’ll meet your guide, who will offer a short safety briefing before you put on your helmet and hop on your bike.
Follow your guide along a 9-mile (14.5-km) route that takes you past some of the Eternal City’s most iconic sights, including the Roman Forum, once the center of Ancient Rome, and the Colosseum, where gruesome gladiator battles took place. Pass by the Trevi Fountain, known for the many coins tossed into its waters, and ride through the historical Jewish Ghetto area.
Between these legendary attractions, you’ll take breaks to sample some of Rome’s culinary delights and to listen to commentary from your informative guide about Rome’s history and sights. Visit a cafe for a traditional Italian breakfast—a simple croissant and espresso. Then head to a bakery where you’ll enjoy a slice of crispy, thin-crust Roman pizza, and replenish your energy with a sample of gelato at a gelateria, an Italian ice cream parlor. You’ll also hear a bit about gelato’s origins and its significance in the country’s culture.
Your tour ends when you return to your starting point.
