I absolutely loved the Vespa tour and highly recommend it!! It’s an easy and fun way to explore the highlights of Rome with other travellers. Marco and Enrica were fabulous, we had a great time and got loads of great pictures. 5 stars from me

This was an awesome experience. Davide & Davide were showing us the hidden spots of Rome in a very typical and unique way. Very interesting insights, safe driving style and loads of fun! Highly recommended
