Full description
See Rome in a fun and non-conventional way with a 3-hour guided bike tour through the Italian capital. It's an active way to discover the city, as you explore with an informative audio guide and tour leader. From the sights of ancient Rome to the Vatican City, hop on a comfortable cruiser bike and see the best of the Italian capital.

Discover the wonder of the ancient Colosseum, built in 72 AD during the reign of Emperor Vespasian. It still stands today as a reminder of the rich Roman history. Then, experience the grandeur of the Vatican City, heart of the Roman Catholic religion and home to the Pope. Marvel at the beauty of the palaces, gardens, and the stunning St. Peter's Basilica. Cruise by the Fontana di Trevi, the city’s largest Baroque fountain, and admire its stunning craftsmanship and elegant design.

The Pantheon, formerly a temple honoring all the gods of Ancient Rome, is a remarkable piece of architecture, and you will see this as well. Its Corinthian columns and massive concrete dome have inspired buildings all over the world, including the Pantheon of Paris.

Finally, pedal by Circus Maximus, the former site of exciting chariot races, or wonder at the history of the Roman Forum. But don't forget your camera; a trip like this should be documented so that you can relive the memories.

Such an amazing tour! It was a fun and easy way to see most of the top attractions. Marcello was a wonderful guide, he provided interesting facts about each site and gave us time to stop and and enjoy everything. This is the best way to learn about the city and have fun!

I real pleasure to cycle in a smallish group through Rome. Marcelo proofed himself to be a very well informed guide - flexible with a good sense of humour. Highly recommended and make sure you make this one of your first activities. It gives you a good sense of the city and it’s highlights.

it was one of the best journey I did in Rome, the tour Guide (Roberto) was really very informative and he shows how much he loves his great city, taking care about very small tips, I like so much that he was removing any stickers from any building to keep his city very clean.
