This was a great way to see Rome at night! Our guide was very informative and made sure that our group remained safe on the busy streets and plazas. To see the highlights of Rome at night is a must! I would suggest at least intermediate bike handling skills as the streets are cobblestone and the plazas are extremely crowded with pedestrians. They had a good variety of bikes for all sizes and heights and they were all in great working order. I highly recommend this tour!!

Karolina was so sweet, knowledgeable, and went at the perfect pace. We got to appreciate everything we saw and she had amazing information to share. This was a great way to familiarise ourselves with Rome - I recommend booking it for one of your first nights in the city.

The tour is a brilliant experience. It is thorough and fun. The guides are very professional and everything we seen, with all the quirks and details would usually take a few days. I’d highly recommend it!

10/10 would recommend this if you are travelling to Rome for the first time. Our tour guide Ani was lovely and so informative. Remember comfortable shoes!

Thank you Gaelle! We had a great time! I highly recommend it to you ! Do it at the beginning of your stay, it will give you great dining addresses.
