In addition to the famous attractions included in your biking itinerary, such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Navona, Venezia Square, and the Capitoline Hill, with a view of the Roman Forum, (depending on the tour route) your guide also highlights lesser-known spots like hidden passageways and ancient walls, and occasionally stops so you can enjoy great sights and photo ops.

We had a fantastic time on the afternoon ride and would highly recommend this trip. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave us some interesting information on the sights along the way with time to stop and explore at some of the main stops. The ebikes were very easy to use and made the trip easy for all even in the 30deg heat. Highly recommended.

This was our first day in Rome and I have not been on a bike in 40 years (at least). I also have an artificial knee. The bikes are electronically assisted when you go up an incline so no worries! We loved this tour, it hit many of the highlights and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. You want to do this!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do this tour first before all other tours! Then you can decide what locations you want to go back to and spend more time enjoying. This tour was great at getting to all the best locations with minimum effort. The route keeps you on back streets with very little congestion. Our amazing guide, Velario, was very informative and keep the tour interesting. Again, I would say again very little effort, the electric assist do 95% of the work. I would recommend this tour to everyone and I would do it again when I go back to Rome.

Thanks Jimmy, for your shining review! We agree, a bike tour is the best way to start your stay in Rome, as it will give you a great overview on which to build. I'm happy to read that both Valerio and the electric bike made the experience even more enjoyable, and we would love to welcome you again during your next visit!

The bike shop was very well organized for the start of the tour. The size of the total group was six, which worked well since we were weaving through crowded areas with pedestrians and cars. The tour covered a large distance with minimal difficulty. Carmen, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and spoke English well. Good way to see Rome.

A MUST BOOK! Best way to see Rome.

Such an incredible tour! I highly suggest doing this tour the first day you arrive. It gives you such a good understanding on where attractions are in the city and gives you a quick taste. You then know where to come back to if you want more time. The e-bikes are amazing you barely need to pedal. There are also loads of stops and places to fill up your water. Our tour guide Poula was fantastic. She even booked us a restaurant for dinner after the tour. This is by far the best way to see Rome. The tour is also very safe. Lots of back streets and not many main roads.

Deborah made my experience at the Vatican one I will never forget. I have been on tours of the Vatican before but nothing compared to this one. She made the visit to the Sistine chapel very meaningful by simplifying and explaining several key elements. Don’t wander around…go with an expert. You will not regret it.
