Meet your guide and small group of no more than 10 people in central Rome to begin your cycling tour of the city. After being matched with a suitable bike, set out to explore the historic piazzas and ancient ruins of Rome.

Follow your guide around the Jewish Ghetto; take in the views from Capitoline Hill, one of Rome’s Seven Hills; and pedal around lively Piazza Navona, before stopping to throw a coin in the legendary Trevi Fountain.

Hop off to see the Colosseum, one of Rome’s most famous landmarks, and marvel at the mighty monument as your guide recounts fascinating stories of the impressive amphitheater. Continue past the grand ruins of the Pantheon and the Imperial Forum; learn the legend of the ‘Mouth of the Truth’ (La Bocca della Verità); and admire ancient sites such as the Theatre of Marcellus, the Circus Maximus, and the Largo di Torre Argentina.

Rome by bicycle

We had great time. We did this afternoon bike tour on our first day here to get to know the city little better. Francesco was our guide and he was very good. He was polite, very friendly, great sense of humor and provides a good historical overview at each site we stopped at. We were the only couple there so we were lucky to get our own guide bike tour. I think bike tour was great way to cover more ground and see more of the city w/ a professional guide who knows his way around.

Amazing experience & well worth the money!

This was our first trip to Rome, I chose Viator on the recommendation from another couple that really liked them. The process from booking online and follow-up after the fact and up until the day of the event was really good. The best part of the tour was Federico our tour bike guide! He was really enjoyable, I do believe we got lucky to have a smaller group then he is use to (usually 10). If you are a little nervous of the ride, don't be. We are in our 50's and were concerned; however, the way we got to see the city of Rome and the amount of time we had was absolutely worth it. I don't know if you can request Federico but he was amazing. He really made us understand the layout of the city of Rome and took us to some unique locations we would have never got to see. This is definitely worth the money.....

Fab was fabulous!

We almost cancelled this outing and I'm so glad we didn't It was our 4th day in Rome and we felt like we had seen pretty much all there was to see. We arrived at the bike shop a bit early and waited for our guide He never showed...but Fab, the bike shop guy, said he was also a guide and offered to close the shop and take us. We grudgingly agreed. We told him what we had already visited and he designed a tour specifically for us! He spoke English very well and gave us interesting tid bits along the entire trip. It was very informative and so much fun weaving in and out of traffic. I would highly recommend this to fit families.

We had very novice riders with us and communicated that multiple times but were taken on same tour through busy streets of Rome. It was a private tour so it could have been changed to fit the group. We mentioned going to a few major parks where it would be easier rides but instead it was a street tour.

Fun and informative semi-private tour!

Francesco was such a knowledgeable and kind guide. This tour was in no way cookie cutter. He asked us what we wanted to see, what we had seen and then, from his incredible knowledge base, created a tour specific to us that provided the most amazing experience. We got to see all of the majorMonuments and cathedrals but also learned about smaller, lesser known spaces. He always had our interests in mind and made sure we were 100% comfortable as we traversed the streets of RomeTogether on our bikes! Would highly recommend seeing the city with him!

Hard to find the bike hire shop but once found it was an excellent tour. Eddy our guide was really interesting and we saw lots of sights which he told us all about. He really knew his stuff and was a great character, which made the tour for us. We did this on our first day in Rome which was great as we got our bearings of where we were in relation to places we wanted to visit and gave us real feel for the city straight away. Would thoroughly recommend.

We ended up on a private tour since no one else had booked this tour at the same time. Our guide Gianluca was amazing! He gave us lots of recommendations on where to eat and things to do and answered all of our questions. The bike tour was easy to follow along and a great way to see the city since Rome is so spread out. We really enjoyed all of our tour and would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!
