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.

    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.

    It was a really great tour! Contrary to what you might expect, Rome is a great way to explore by bike! The tour was super interesting, you learned a lot about history, but current topics/things were also discussed. Lucilla our guide did a great job and I recommend it to everyone! You get a great overview of the city and after the tour you have all the important information together!

    Wow, just wow. We had a great morning and lunch with Lucilla on our bike tour across Rome. She not only showed us her favorite places in Rome with great passion, but also always shared her enthusiasm for life in Rome. The bikes were comfy, well maintained and had little pockets to put drinks in. Sometimes, unfortunately, staying in the sun is unavoidable due to the lack of shade. The tour was well planned and in our opinion it wouldn't have made sense to include more in the tour. We stayed to the right of the Tiber the whole time and doesn't go any higher than the Trevi Fountain. The tour was not physically demanding. Lucilla is a friendly, interested and enthusiastic guide who, with her knowledge, was able to answer all of our questions, not only about all the sights but also about all other matters. She made the day unforgettable.
