Rome: Half-Day Tour by Vespa with Driver

1. Rome: Half-Day Tour by Vespa with Driver

Rome is the perfect city to explore on 2 wheels, and there are no 2 wheels more iconic than a Vespa scooter. The quintessential Roman mode of transport will see you turn heads for your sense of style as much as you will be turning yours to admire the historic and hidden sights of the Eternal City. Accompanied by an expert driver, visit the most important monuments of Ancient Rome, such as the Circus Maximus, Roman Forum, Colosseum, and Pantheon. Discover why romantics (and the Romantic poets) love the city at enchanting churches and decorative monuments, such as the Baroque Trevi Fountain - throw a coin in to make sure you return to Rome one day - and the Spanish Steps. Go to some of the city’s lesser known attractions, such as the carved face of the Bocca della Verità in the portico of the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin, recognizable to film fans from the Audrey Hepburn movie “Roman Holiday.” Keep your eye out for the Pope as you cruise past the Vatican City, and more.

I solo-travelled to Rome in early December and really wanted to try a vespa tour, and this activity did not disappoint! I opted for the afternoon tour and while it was a bit chilly, the guide was very kind and periodically checked-in with me to ensure I was warm enough. The tour itself was wonderful, as my guide tailored it to my interests and helped me discover places I hadn't visited yet on my trip. My guide was also very knowledgeable about the city and its history, and also helped me take many pictures to remember this fun experience. I 100% recommend travellers to try this activity!

We loved our Vespa tour. It exceeded our expectations and was the highlight of our trip. My husband and I were a bit apprehensive about it because we were worried for our kids but it was a great family activity and we felt completely safe. It was such a wonderful way to see the city. Our guides, Vittorio, Marta, Alberto, and Max were amazing and you can tell they love what they do. I highly recommend this way to see Rome!

Best way to see Rome! Mario and Fabio were amazing and so friendly. I would recommend to anyone visiting, especially if it’s your first time there! Thank you for such an incredible experience!!

Yes it's Bumpy and scary at times in the traffic but I would do it again in a Heart beat. What a way to see, feel and learn about Rome. Had such an amazing time, it passed by too quickly!!

A little hard for teenagers but allows you to discover some nuggets that we would not have seen on our own To do!
