What You'll Do
  • Cycle the city streets to absorb the local atmosphere
  • Explore sites over 2000 years old
  • See amazing graffiti made by international artists against the backdrop of Rome's old industrial quarter
  • Discover authentic Roman neighborhoods like Testaccio and Garbatella, away from the tourist areas
  • Listen to the story of the Tor Marancia quarter, nicknamed Shangai
Overview
Explore the new look of Rome on a relaxed 4-hour electric bicycle tour, discovering the amazing graffiti in lesser-known but fascinating quarters like Garbatella, Testaccio and Tor Marancia. You will also see historic sites like Piazza Navona.
What to Expect
Your tour will start in the Campo dei Fiori area, proceeding from there through to the medieval quarter of Trastavere. After that, it's on to the typical Roman district of Testaccio, and Ostiense. Here, in the Porto Fluviale area, you will see amazing graffiti by international artists including Kid Akne, Blu, JB Rock, Lex and Sten, all set against a background of industrial settlement and huge gasworks. 

Next, the tour crosses Garbatella, an interesting quarter developed when Mussolini was in power, to arrive at Tor Marancia. This district is nicknamed 'Shanghai' - you will discover why - and here you will see over twenty graffiti pieces painted by major Italian and foreign artists including Klevra, Diamond, Gaia and JAZ. See how what was formerly a run-down district has become a pleasant neighborhood today. Finally, returning to the starting-point, you will see Appia Antica, Circo Massimo, the Jewish quarter and Piazza Navona, to get a flavor of some of Rome's amazing historical sites.
