A must-do tour in Rome! No matter if you're there for the first or year another time, the self-driven Vespa Tour is absolutely amazing! Our guide Mario had so many interesting stories and facts about Rome and took us to so many places so we felt like we've been spending a week in Rome! Highly recommend!

Perfect way to experience Rome in a day. We budgeted only one day to visit Rome during our tour of Italy. We considered renting a Vespa for 24 hours, but we were concerned about the driving customs and rules, as well as navigating all of the many one-way streets and pedestrian-only walkways. We decided at the last minute to book this instead, and it was the most fantastic way to see all of the very best of Rome in just around 4 hours. Our guide, Mario, was extremely knowledgeable, a Roman by birth and son of a Roman diplomat, Mario was fluent in 6+ languages and knew all of the “secret” ways to drive our Vespas extremely close to all of the most popular sites, allowing us to quickly hop off, tour, and get right back on the road. We made at least 20 stops during our trip, including Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Coliseum, the Roman Forum, Monte Testaccio, Baths of Caracalla, Circus Maximus, Villa Borghese, Church of Sant'Ignazio at Loyola, other fountains, and a stop for gelato!

This was easily the highlight of our time in Rome! Perfect balance of history and adventure. Our guide Katerina was an excellent historian of the city, very helpful Vespa leader, and pleasant host. We saw more of the city then would have been possible without a much longer stay. It would be hard to replicate the experience of riding on a Vespa through the winding streets with a professional guide. Thank you again Katerina!
