What You Can Expect
Your tour starts when your private guide meets you at your central Rome hotel and gives you a comprehensive safety briefing before you hop on the back of your Vespa. Choosing the best route to avoid any traffic, your guide will take you on a scenic drive, stopping at highlights to explain each hill's history.
Head to Caelian Hill, where you’ll visualize its former splendor at the vast ruins of the Baths of Caracalla. Then cruise down the nearby Appian Way, one of the first paved roads in history. Pass the tranquil Orange Garden on Aventine Hill, and stop to admire an unforgettable keyhole view of St Peter's Basilica at the Piazza of the Knights of Malta. Ride to Capitoline Hill, sandwiched between the Roman Forum and Piazza Venezia, before passing the majestic Qurinal Palace on Quirnal Hill.
After a stop on Palatine Hill for views of Rome's Colosseum, head over to the Aurelian Walls to see the incredible defensive structure that once circled the Seven Hills. The land by these ancient city walls is home to one of Rome's lesser-known treasures, the unique Pyramid of Cestius -- perfect for a photo stop!
Cross the Tiber River to visit Rome's other notable hills, passing the boat-shaped Tiber Island as you go! Stop with your guide to enjoy panoramic views of Rome's churches, piazzas and monuments from Janiculum Hill, and ride to the must-see St Peter's Square on Vatican Hill.
After seeing more of Rome's ancient sights than you could ever expect to see on a coach or walking tour, your friendly guide will drop you off at your chosen central Rome location or your hotel.
My sister and I had an INCREDIBLE experience with this tour. Our tour guides were wonderful and really took us to areas we wouldn't have been able to access through traditional touring methods. 'When in Rome do as the Romans do'- what's more roman than touring this incredible city on a vespa?? (it also helps to alleviate some of the traffic situations) :)
On an October trip to Italy with three friends, we had one day to spend in Rome. The Rome Vespa tour was AWESOME. Our guides were GREAT. One day in Rome is not sufficient, but we got a great taste of it that day. We are just home a couple weeks and talk about that day all the time. It was the highlight of our Italy trip. It is money very well spent. You will see things not everyone gets a chance to see. I would do it again in a heartbeat. We were introducted to Suppli al telefono this day-YUMMY. I found a recipe and made them when got home. They were almost as good! But since we were not eating them with our tour guides, it wasn't the same.
