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.

    Tour was a lot of fun. We cycled to some of the major attractions of Rome. Our tour guide was awesome! Unfortunately can't remember her name but she was friendly, funny and very knowledgeable about the locations we visited. The bike needed a little maintenance as the gears wouldn't shift perfectly but it didn't effect the ride too much. The radio ear pieces were a great idea so as to hear clearly and from a distance but they malfunctioned alot and was difficult to hear sometimes. Apart from that was an amazing experience. Thanks heaps

    Alessandra was our guide. She took us throughout the whole city center and told us about the main monuments. I learned a lot of history and I was amazed of the amazing buildings we saw. It was a complete tour where we saw the most representative places from Rome. She gave us time to take pictures, to have water and to enjoy ourselves. She always took care of us and was always making sure that we were safe and sound. Thank you. I would definitely repeat the experience.

    This was my first time in Rome and this tour gave me a perfect overview of the city highlights. The guide was very informative and gave us some useful tips on pizza, gelato etc. The driving was light and so much fun as we made stops every few minutes to take pictures etc. I would recommend this to anyone who visits Rome for the first time regardless of their physical shape.
