Full description

Explore the beauty of the “Eternal City” on a full-day bike tour, either on a quality trekking bike or an electrically assisted bicycle - that makes climbing Roman hills effortless. Meet your guide close to the Colosseum for an impressive view of the mighty arena of the Roman Republic. Then, continue to the Imperial Forum to see the temples dedicated to the gods of Ancient Rome. Cycle down small alleys, admiring Renaissance and Baroque palaces and churches along the way. Your local guide will lead you to some of Rome’s hidden and most famous squares and fountains, such as the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, and Piazza del Popolo. Learn some of Rome’s 2,000-year history as you pedal, pausing at sites such as the Castel Sant'Angelo, Piazza Venezia, and Villa Borghese. Take a break for a typical Italian lunch in an authentic trattoria, along with short breaks for a historical explanation, and possibilities to take pictures. After a ride in the quaint Trastevere, pedal up Capitoline Hill for a breathtaking panoramic view of the Roman Forum and to experience one of the legendary Seven Hills of Rome. Admire Michelangelo’s urban planning on the main square of the Capitoline, and bike to the Vatican City for a view of St. Peter’s Basilica and Bernini’s graceful colonnades.

We were lucky that on our day there were no other tourists for the bike ride, so it became a private tour. Klaas was our guide. And what an enthusiasm! How he told about the history of Rome, the different sights was so full of enthusiasm. That made this tour great!! Seen everything we wanted, on a bike. Really recommended!!!!!!

One day before the e-bike tour was due to start, our tour was canceled due to illness. We then decided to take the 4-hour drive through Rome. Our guide Elisabeth (a) was very personable and was able to answer all of our questions. In the streets it was sometimes difficult to share them with all road users. How is it only in high season. it was good and we enjoyed it.

Super

Great way to see Rome. Super guide and electric bikes that just worked. Did not get my heart rate up though, but got to see a lot and told many facts about the sites we came across. Can only be recommended. Now have the courage to go on your own ride on an electric bike in Rome.
