Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Rome in a Day Tour with Electric-assist bicycle

A ride in the Borghese gardens

Your day tour starts by meeting your guide, who will provide a brief introduction to your electric-assist bicycle, which looks like a regular bicycle but has a small motor that takes most of the effort out of pedaling. Then take off along Rome’s historic streets, stopping occasionally for photo ops and to listen to commentary from your guide about Rome’s many famous landmarks. 

Exact routes vary by day, but all of the following sights mentioned will typically be included. Let your bike do the work as you ride up Fagutal Hill (part of Esquiline Hill) for a view of the Colosseum, and then head to Piazza Venezia, the geographical center of Rome, before continuing to the Trevi Fountain, where legend says that if you throw a coin in the water, you are sure to return to Rome someday. Pass by the Spanish Steps on your way to Piazza del Popolo, from where you’ll cycle into the Villa Borghese gardens for a leisurely ride along shady paths. 

Stop by the Pantheon and ride through piazza Navona before sitting down for lunch at an Italian trattoria - a meal including appetizers and a dish of pasta or pizza and a drink. After lunch, go see the square and the Basilica of St. Peter as well as Castel Sant’Angelo; ride through the less-known squares of Campo de’ Fiori and Piazza Farnese. 

As your guide takes you over the river to Trastevere, you get to enjoy the colorful ambience of this authentically Roman neighborhood, where you also stop for a gelato break. As you cross the river back towards the Jewish neighborhood, throw a glance to the Tiber Island; at the close of the tour, see the Theater of Marcellus and witness the monumental ruins of the Roman forum from the vantage point of the Capitoline hill, before making your way back to the shop.

What a way to experience the backstreets and outlying sites . Zipping from piazza to piazza with our knowledgeable guide making regular stops to explain what we were seeing was exhilirating. Lunch was very good and the Gelato stop was a real surprise: i dont normally do ice-cream but the extensive range of flavours extended to the fascinating. This is a must do.

SO AMAZING!!! Highly highly recommend, Imke was absolutely incredible. We had signed up for a group tour but ended up only being the two of us so it was a private group with our amazing guide. We got to spend as much time as we wanted at the sites that interested us and had a fun girls day riding around Rome : Lunch was phenomenal and we ended up going there again at the end of our trip!

The best day or our Europe trip. The only way to see really see Rome is on a bike, and this tour let us see just about everything. Bruno our guide had a Masters in History, and his knowledge and insight really brought Ancient Rome alive for us.This tour was so complete, we cancelled our Hop-on-Hop-off bus tour the next day, as we had already visited every stop! Instead, we went back and rented bikes on our own so we could revisit our favorite places. Can not recommend highly enough...you must do this!

It was truly an amazing day. A fantastic way to see the city. We got to see parts that we would never have seen unless we lived in Rome. Emanuele our guide was informative, erudite, funny and really added to the tour by giving his own personal views to what we were seeing and the Italian condition. Lunch was fantastic, the ice cream was amazing and we had the best coffee I have ever tasted. If you have a spare day in Rome, I highly recommend doing this, it's brilliant.

We did a 6 hour bike tour of all the major sites in Rome. A fun experience to see it all in one day. The tour guide and the rental bike company were excellent. We stopped at a quaint restaurant for lunch. The electric bike was easy to operate.

Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. Rik, our guide, was great. He knew and loved his history and it was infectious.
The electric bikes were a dream to ride, you could ride as hard or easy as you like.
It was crazy how much we saw and what was fitted into the tour, including a leisurely lunch of pizza or pasta and a beer or wine.
We also stopped for a gelato !!

Great fun, and our host Bruno was the best! So much history AND he helped us find the perfect soccer jersey for our son. Also the trattoria we ate lunch at was the best meal for the entire trip. Fabulous!
