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!

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.

Our family, had a wonderful time with our guide, Klaas, despite heavy rain and a stop to change a punctured tyre. Since there were only 4 of us, Klaas took a lot of time to ensure our safety when crossing the road, share with us his knowledge about Rome and his own experience riding bicycle solo from Europe to Asia. We stopped by to have enjoyable lunch, simple but delicious pasta with great conversation with our guide. After we reached the end of the tour, Klaas shared with us his Dutch snacks. I would recommend Klaas and this company to everyone. They are very professional and even offered to refund us in full, when we were already at their shop, if we chose to cancel it because of the rain forecast. You can tell that they are good people and we glad that we went ahead with it although our shoes were soaking wet and we had to buy 3 new shoes . The e-bikes were in good conditions with front pocket to keep your phone, poncho and water bottles. 5 stars tour

Mario is so a fabulous tour guide. Funny, warm and knowledgeable. He guided my family (including a surly teenager) around Rome and brought smiles to everyone. The ebikes were excellent and made even the hills easy to climb. While Rome’s traffic can be intimidating, Mario guided us without any anxiety. 5 stars!!

Michele was very nice and knowledgeable. The bikes were street bikes (thin tires). We got to bike around town, see all the main locations and take good photos! Highly recommend!

It was really a great trip. We could see in a short time a lot and we had fun. Our guide Mario was really prepared and friendly. That's the perfect way to see Rome!

Our experience was so much fun! It was a great way to see the city. Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly.
