Frequently asked questions about Rome Bike Tours

What are other things to do than Bike Tours that are worth visiting in Rome?

Rome bike tours: Everything you need to know

When in Rome, why pick and choose which famous attractions you have time to see? Instead, join one of the Rome bike tours and cycle your way through ancient monuments, historical landmarks, and current culture. You will see much more than you ever could on foot. The food will be irresistible, so peddle your calories away as you gaze, gallivant, and gobble your way through the treasured “Eternal City.”

What can I expect on a Rome bike tour?

You are in for a treat! Strap on your helmet and prepare to see all the Roman architecture that you came for.

As you ride by the Pantheon, your tour guide will explain that this site used to serve as a temple for the Ancient Roman gods and many architects around the world have used it and still use it as inspiration for building and column designs.

You will cruise past the Coliseum, a massive amphitheater that comfortably sat 87,000 spectators in 72 AD. This 2,000-year-old stadium has incurred damage throughout the years but is still in pretty good shape, all things considered. The emperors used to provide free entry for locals, allowing them to watch the bloody gladiator contests, wild animal fights, and war reenactments.

If you choose the original Rome 3-hour bike tour, you will pedal past the Circus Maximus and see where the city hosted its famous chariot races. Also, on this tour, you will bike through the Vatican City, the place that birthed the Roman Catholic religion and still houses the Pope.

Choose the yellow bike tour and cycle through the secret streets and alleys of the Italian capital. Ride over the Tiber river and see Piazza Farnese, the palace that Michelangelo restored, and the canopy-like trees in Villa Borghese. Stop to make a wish and toss a penny into the Trevi Fountain. This magnificent fountain stands 85-feet high and almost 65-feet wide, taking the prize for Rome’s largest fountain and, arguably, the most beautiful.

How big are the bike tour groups?

The tours range in size. If you prefer a smaller group, you can choose the 3.5-hour small group bike tour. Including only 6 total bikers, you have space to ask your tour guide questions about each site. Not to mention that you’ll have more time to spend quietly marveling at church, temple, and forum ruins. Other tour groups can fit large families together in one group or allow you to meet new friends as you all view the city by bike.

How long is a typical bike tour in Rome?

Expect to spend 3-4 hours out and about on a bicycle. Many of the tours do not include refreshments, so time your meals and snacks accordingly.

What should I bring on my bike tour?

Your tour guide will provide you with a bicycle, helmet, and their own comprehensive knowledge of the city. Tie up your close-toed shoes, bring your sunglasses, and don’t forget a camera so that you can relive the magical moments when you return home. If you are traveling to Rome in the winter months, think about tossing an umbrella into your backpack. Some tours include a poncho, but it might be a good idea to bring your own as you never know when it may start raining.

Are there any evening bike tours in Rome?

Relax with an evening electric bike ride and watch Rome pass from dusk to dark. This electric bike tour accommodates those looking for a restful ride in addition to anybody with physical limitations. The tour also provides child seats so your children can join you on your nighttime tour.

Can I bring the whole family on a bike tour of Rome?

As long as you are present, above the age of 18, and consider yourself an above-average bicyclist, you can bring children under the age of 10. Children from 10-18 must have a parent accompany them as well. Keep in mind that the city consists of a lot of cobblestone pathways and can turn into a bumpy ride. If a person in your party is pregnant, it is recommended that she opt out of the bike tour to ensure her and her baby’s safety. Since the tour also takes about 3-4 hours, make sure that your small children peddling on their own can adapt to the long ride.






Planning Your Visit

  • How hard is it?

    Rome is renowned for its hills and, with so much to see, the city's bicycle tours average about three or four hours. If you're unsure, choose an itinerary that avoids scaling hills wherever possible, or contact your tour provider for more information.

  • How safe is it?

    The threat posed by Rome's infamously dense traffic is balanced out somewhat by how slow-moving it is, and the city has seen a huge upsurge in the number of cyclists taking to its streets since the recession. It's safer than you might think, but the transition into a truly bike-friendly city is still underway. Don't think you can get away without a helmet and hi-vis vest!

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 for our family of 6. Leopoldo and Glen were both great to work with and spend a morning with. Nice to get out of the city for some fun. The cool breeze on the bikes was super. And the bike! They were wonderful!! I was a skeptical, having never riden an e-bike before, but we all loved them and they assisted us like a charm from start to finish! Would definitely recommend this outing. And grab some gelato or iced coffee at the shop next door after!

Had a fantastic day with Marcus the guide on our Appian way E bike tour. The catacombs were amazing too. Thank you Marcus for a very informative tour and for making us feel very safe on the streets of Rome. I would highly recommend this tour, defo one of the highlights of my break in Italy so far.

Excellent activity more than I imagine, highly highly recommended if you want to know the real Rome. Excellent guide!
