Full description
You tour will begin when you meet your professional guide at the official meeting point. From here you will depart on a relaxing and fun ride on an aluminum bike, complete with gears that will help make riding all the more easier. Your friendly tour guide will take you along to discover the history of "Villa Borghese", one of the biggest and most beautiful public parks in Rome. The sculptures that fill up the roads of the park make it a real open air museum, and together with its enchanting fountains, it is sure to be an amazing experience to add to your visit to the "eternal city". The strong feature of this park is its green spaces that allow you to breath in the fresh air, away from the smog and chaos of the city.

Stefano was an excellent tour guide, and management was great in being flexible in changing our bike tour into a walking tour. The reason we changed plans is that I (74 years old) was unfamiliar with the sensitive steering, was jarred by the cobblestones in the street we had to ride on, and the fast-moving traffic on a narrow street. I felt endangered immediately, and wanted to quit. Stefano was entirely gracious in suggesting we change to a walking tour. He was informative and kind. I suggest you either update your tour description to alert people of the cobblestone street and traffic. Or, find a way to start the bike tour IN the park. Thank you!

Great time! The 3h ride is easy, without being great athletes. The information is relevant, good English from the guide (always smiling) with a good accent (understandable by French people). A complete tour of the Borghese Gardens which we highly recommend so as not to waste time not knowing where to walk (and it's huge so walking it would be way too long). To be added to the schedule!

A fantastic experience! We did the tour for the gardens of the villa borghese practically with a friend. The 3 hours of the tour flew by and at the end he gave us excellent advice to discover other peculiarities of this splendid city! We will definitely have other experiences with this group!
