Perfect way to experience Rome in a day. We budgeted only one day to visit Rome during our tour of Italy. We considered renting a Vespa for 24 hours, but we were concerned about the driving customs and rules, as well as navigating all of the many one-way streets and pedestrian-only walkways. We decided at the last minute to book this instead, and it was the most fantastic way to see all of the very best of Rome in just around 4 hours. Our guide, Mario, was extremely knowledgeable, a Roman by birth and son of a Roman diplomat, Mario was fluent in 6+ languages and knew all of the “secret” ways to drive our Vespas extremely close to all of the most popular sites, allowing us to quickly hop off, tour, and get right back on the road. We made at least 20 stops during our trip, including Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Coliseum, the Roman Forum, Monte Testaccio, Baths of Caracalla, Circus Maximus, Villa Borghese, Church of Sant'Ignazio at Loyola, other fountains, and a stop for gelato!
I recommend this trip to everyone who wants to know the story behind the important places in Rome. Bruno is a very nice person who explained all the history in a simple way and with good English. I really appreciate that he continued with the tour although it was just me on that day. I highly recommend this tour if you are in Rome for a short trip. I had lot of fun learning the stories behind the fountains and main squares. P.S: you will also get to see the most beautiful fountain (chocolate fountain) that’s not included in other tours :)
An amazing experience indeed! Our tour guide Flavio was the best, a very nice and welcoming person. This was the highlight of our trip would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to enjoy rome by night in a fun way!
