See the sights of the Eternal City on a full-day electric-assist bicycle tour, with a pizza or pasta lunch, wine and a gelato stop included! Easy and safe to ride, the bicycle has an electric motor that kicks in when pedaling. As well as allowing you to see the sights with little effort, the bike enables you to cover more ground, too! See the Colosseum and ruins of Ancient Rome; explore the charming neighborhood of Trastevere; visit squares like Piazza Navona; and admire attractions like Rome Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and more.
Your day tour starts by meeting your guide, who will provide a brief introduction to your electric-assist bicycle, which looks like a regular bicycle but has a small motor that takes most of the effort out of pedaling. Then take off along Rome’s historic streets, stopping occasionally for photo ops and to listen to commentary from your guide about Rome’s many famous landmarks. Exact routes vary by day, but all of the following sights mentioned will typically be included. Let your bike do the work as you ride up Fagutal Hill (part of Esquiline Hill) for a view of the Colosseum, and then head to Piazza Venezia, the geographical center of Rome, before continuing to the Trevi Fountain, where legend says that if you throw a coin in the water, you are sure to return to Rome someday. Pass by the Spanish Steps on your way to Piazza del Popolo, from where you’ll cycle into the Villa Borghese gardens for a leisurely ride along shady paths. Stop by the Pantheon and ride through piazza Navona before sitting down for lunch at an Italian trattoria - a meal including appetizers and a dish of pasta or pizza and a drink. After lunch, go see the square and the Basilica of St. Peter as well as Castel Sant’Angelo; ride through the less-known squares of Campo de’ Fiori and Piazza Farnese. As your guide takes you over the river to Trastevere, you get to enjoy the colorful ambience of this authentically Roman neighborhood, where you also stop for a gelato break. As you cross the river back towards the Jewish neighborhood, throw a glance to the Tiber Island; at the close of the tour, see the Theater of Marcellus and witness the monumental ruins of the Roman forum from the vantage point of the Capitoline hill, before making your way back to the shop.
