What You Can Expect

Panoramic Electric-Assist Bike Tour of Rome

Enjoy fine views over top Rome attractions on your electric bike tour

Your bike tour starts by meeting your guide at a central location in Rome. You'll be paired with an electric bike, which looks like a typical bicycle but takes the work out of pedaling up Rome’s famous hills with its motor. (If you prefer the exercise, however, regular bikes are also available.)

Pedal away from Rome’s busy traffic, following your guide past sights like the Pantheon, the Baths of Trajan, the Piazza of the Knights of Malta and the Garden of Oranges at Aventine Hill. Ride through the quaint neighborhood of Trastevere to see the Basilica of Santa Maria, and check out popular plazas like Piazza Navona, home to street artists and fountains, and Piazza della Bocca della Verità, where you’ll find the amusing Mouth of Truth.

Take a break to refuel with a gelato or espresso, if you wish, and then continue cycling through the Jewish Ghetto district and down the Via dei Coronari. Spot old temples, the ruins of the Theatre of Pompey and Parc Adriano, where you’ll catch sight of Castel Sant’Angelo.

Next, pedal up historic Palatine Hill, and hear from your guide about Circus Maximus, where chariots were raced in Ancient Rome. Enjoy a photo op of the Roman Forum from Capitoline Hill, and then move on to Janiculum Hill for wide views of the city and hilly landscape in the distance. Your bike tour ends when you return to the original departure location. 

Note: Total biking distance is 12 miles (18 km). You may see these sights in a different order than the suggested description.

The tour was the highlight of our trip to Rome, We went with Top Bike Rental and they were so friendly and professional . We popped in 2 days before the tour to check the details and the lady behind the desk was a gem. She gave us hints and tips to enhance our stay and by then we knew we had picked the right tour. Our tour guide was Valeria who was friendly and had so much knowledge throughout the tour she made our week. We felt safe at all times on route and believe this is a great way to see Rome.

The tour was very nice. Bicycles were very good, very easy to ride. Emanuel was supportive is not very easy to ride in Rome, he give us plenty of information about the city. We saw a lot of interesting sites not so easy to find by your own.

A friend and I were staying in Rome for just two days, so we chose this tour to get our bearings and see as much as we could. Our guide, Frederico, went out of his way to give us a totally unique, honest and informative experience of the city. It really made our trip. Thanks so much!

Absolutely fabulous experience. A small group (just two riders plus the guide), we got a great look at the city. The spots we stopped (for coffee and later pizza) were top notch, and ones that I returned to on my own. This tour made my trip!
I ride a road bike at home, so this was not a stretch. If you haven't ridden in 15 years, this is a pretty technical undertaking. It's not the up- and down-hill that challenge -- although there are hills -- it's the crowds. (I chose a touring bike with an electronic battery "assist", so going uphill was easy.)
Unlike a walking tour, where you are listening to a guide (usually through a headset) while you walk, on this biking tour you ride for awhile, then stop and listen to explanation.
This tour made my trip!

Great way to experience Rome. Aside from wonderful panoramic views of Rome, we took small alley ways into the various sections. We saw sights in Trastevere, toured the Pantheon, and went to the Vatican City. Caution: Some were on electric bikes that lurched forward when the rider tried to slow.

Our Panoramic tour of Rome was outstanding! Gederico the guide was a fount of knowledge and was very considerate of all levels of riders in our group. We learned so much on this tour and saw intimate sights of Rome that normal tours on buses cannot see. I cannot recommend this tour enough and it is enjoyable for all level of riders. Next time we are in Rome we will do a different tour and request Gederico to lead us.
