You HAVE to take this tour! I have visited Rome several times and did the same old tours and I learned more and had more fun on the vespa tour then any time prior. We had the most knowledgeable, fun and cutest guide(I can say that because I'm old) ever; you must request Cesare. He showed us things and answered all of our questions. He let us shop the local paintings and just enjoy our surroundings instead of hustling us through like cattle. He bought us some ice cream and a drink of our choosing. I was so impressed with him I decided that I am going to cancel my tour bookings this summer and book with him. Not only is he amazing but his mom is as well, it is family owned which makes it even better. She will contact you on locations, which they are very flexible, and answer any questions that you may have.

Great way to spend a morning. Took us to see many of Rome's less well known but no less worh seeing sites. Places you wouldn't normally go but really should. Roberto was a knowledgeable and engaging guide, who loves Rome. I really do recommend seeing Rome by vespa.

The pantheon is free, yet I had reserved an audio guide for 4:30 p.m. At the entrance, it no longer accepts people without a reservation. I'm glad I did it yesterday. The audio guide was great. Super interesting.

Audio guide is all you need. Do not need a live guide at all. Love the building inside and out.

The explanation is heard in your language and you make the visit at your own pace. advisable.
