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.

Brilliant Sunday Afternoon ride

Just completed the Rome 4 hour bike tour on electric assisted trek bikes. Fantastic way to see Rome ad it's beautiful Piazzas ad narrow streets. Our guide Dolores was very knowledgeable about the history of Rome and made the whole afternoon very enjoyable. Here were 3 of us on our English tour and the pace was measly to maintain with plenty of time to see everything. I would thoroughly recommend this tour as a great way to see the sights of Rome

Great tour. Everything runs like clockwork. The meeting point is easy to find, the bikes are excellent (we used manual bikes, the route is pretty flat), route is laid out to avoid main streets, there is time to stop at major sites and walk around (Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, etc) and the guide was the super. Highly recommend!

This was a great way to see the sights and get an in-depth explanation of the key monuments while having a fun ride. The bike electric assist makes it easy to ride for anyone. It’s a bit tough to get through the crowds. I’d advise just jumping off and walking. Don’t forget to use your bell to let people know you’re coming!

Great History Lesson and Great Bikes!

Fabio was fabulous. He was so passionate and informative with all this Roman history and his art history was excellent. He knew all the dates, the artists, the politicians, the architects, you name it! We biked over 10 miles on these wonderful hybrids, very comfortable and easier to handle than my roadbike. Down narrow cobblestone streets and busy city roads, but Fabio directed traffic and made us feel very safe and comfortable. No muss no fuss, very delightful!

The bike tour of Rome was fun. We love riding e-bikes and enjoyed touring the city. However, our guide doesn’t wear any type of microphone system and it was very hard to hear what she was telling us about the city. It was a medium size group so we had to maneuver through traffic and pedestrians carefully and wait quite a lot for all to catch up. Communication was the most disappointing thing with this tour.

Fantastic tour to do on your first day to cover off on all the major sites so you can decide which ones you want to spend more time at. Cuts off a lot of walking and the knowledge of our guide, Akram, was very impressive. He was engaging, friendly and made the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable (the ebike helped also). Thank you!

The most fun and entertaining way to see Rome. We had a great guide. He showed us all the inns and outs and gave us a great place to have dinner after. The bikes were easy to use and we are glad we upgraded to the bike.
