You'll want to fill it up, when you learn about our world famous Colosseum Underground Tour!
We will be on the bicycle most of the time. You won't be doing too much pedaling, since we are using the e-bikes, that practically go on their own!

It just doesn't stop when it comes to beautiful squares in Rome, and our next stop is one of the most famous piazzas in all of Italy!
Nowadays the location of the French Embassy in Rome, this piazza is famed for the beautiful Palazzo Farnese, where you can admire the architectural genius of Michelangelo!
We will cross over one of the oldest bridges in Rome, and continue our trip to the other side of the river, to the famous bohemian district of Rome, Trastevere.
This is the pulsing heart of the neighborhood and here you will really feel why Trastevere is Rome's most popular district!

What would you prefer - 4 hours of walking in the hot sun and seeing a small part of the city or cruising around on an E-bike with the wind blowing through your hair and seeing practically the whole city?
We at The Roman Guy believe in maximizing your time when you are on vacation. This is why we have developed an electric bike tour that is eco-friendly and enjoyable, showcasing the best of Rome's beauty, history and culture without overheating. With this Eco-Friendly Electric Bike Rome Tour, we think we have achieved perfection!
Do you know how easy and fun electric biking in Rome is? The best part about using an E-bike is that you barely have to pedal and the bike goes by itself. With our electric Rome city bikes, you will get to where the vehicles cannot reach and cover more ground than your feet would be able to, in only a couple of hours. And in case you're not familiar with E-bikes, we have good news for you - they almost run by themselves without you even having to pedal much!
*This tour is meant for persons who know how to ride a bike well. E-bikes also do not come in youth or childrens sizes due to the motorization. Anyone riding the bikes must be 5 foot 2 inches (160cm) minimum. If your child is below 18 and above 5 foot 2 inches in height you should purchase for them as a "student (18 - 25)." This tour goes down some very smooth roads, but many of Rome's roads are paved in characteristic cobble stones. We think the ride is still enjoyable, but we need to point out that some may think otherwise. We also do not recommend this tour to anyone with poor balance or persons severely overweight.
This tour will bring you to all of the must-see sites of Rome, but you will also get to admire the back streets, hidden piazzas, secret passages and spots with amazing views. So have your camera charged, you will be taking lots of photos!
We will depart from our office in the city center, taking you past Piazza Venezia, the central square of Rome, home of the grandious monument dedicated to Victor Emanuel II, the first king of Italy. We will then continue cruising by the Colosseum, the famous arena where gladiators once spilt blood in front of their audiences of thousands of excited spectators! After viewing the exterior of the legendary monument and taking some photos, we will continue through the Ancient ruins of what were once Trajan's Baths and is now a pleasant and quiet park. As we work our way down some side-roads, we will come upon an Ancient Roman Aqueduct which carried millions of liters of water into the city by only using gravity!
We then make an abrupt turn into a lesser-known park, Villa Celimontana. Here you will enjoy a different side of biking in Rome, with the lush vegetation around you, breathing in the fresh air of a secluded park. As we continue to the other side, we will exit and come to the biggest stadium that was ever built, Circus Maximus. The old movie Ben Hur will come back to life as you learn the history of this amazing stadium that was used for 1,000 years.
Afterwards, we will head up the Aventine Hill to witness one of the most picturesque views of the entire city. We then descend into the Greek Ghetto where we will see the Mouth of Truth, whose legend states that if you are lying it will bite your hand off! We will continue to the Capitoline Hill, that offers the most magnificent views of the Roman Forum. Did we mention that Rome was built on 7 hills? Don't worry about going up all the hills, your E-bike will give you the push you need, so you will never feel tired. Biking in Rome has never been so easy!
As you come to Piazza Venezia, you will see a massive piece of stone called Trajan’s column. As an Emperor, Trajan decided to build this huge column as a tribute to his victory of the ancient Dacians. After some more backroads, you will hear the gushing of the water and come upon the most famous fountain in the world, The Trevi Fountain. Throw a coin inside, which will make sure you will come back! We continue to the most famous stairs in the world, The Spanish Steps. Rome has so many famous and beautiful things to see, especially when you are on one of these electric Rome city bikes!
Within 5 minutes of the Spanish Steps, we will enter one of the biggest parks in Rome, Villa Borghese. Originally a privately-owned park of a Cardinal, it is now open to the public with its many statues, fountains and the best view the city has to offer, the Pincio Hill. We then descend to the 19th century Piazza del Popolo which is the biggest square in Rome, famous for holding concerts and political rallies. We then head down to the Mausoleum of Augustus - this is where the first Emperor of Rome is buried!
There are few emotions as high as entering a building that is almost 2,000 years old and still intact. This is what you will experience when you go inside the Pantheon. A mysterious beauty that still baffles archaeologists today. After all this history and picture-taking you will be ready for an amazing gelato to cool off, and we know the best place. We then cruise on over to Piazza Navona where the shape of this square will be explained, finishing off on this side of the river with Campo De’ Fiori and Piazza Farnese - two historic squares known for their bloody and lively past.
We cross the river at Ponte Sisto, named after the Pope in the 15th Century who built the Sistine Chapel (see the resemblance) and cross into Trastevere. Home to hundreds of bars and restaurants, but also to some of the most beautiful streets Rome has. It will be a feast for your eyes, just to ride around, and you will be dying to return to this area again later in the evening!
After our venture through Trastevere, we will cross the river again, this time going over the famous Tiber Island, which is one of the oldest parts of Rome and also has the oldest bridge in the city, dating back to Ancient Roman Times. On the other side, we will take a journey through the narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter, still, today holding close ties to the Jewish community of Rome. Once we get through the Jewish Quarter, you might think that you will see the Colosseum, but the building in front of you is actually 100 years older than the Colosseum, it is the Theater of Marcellus which was a famous theater over 2000 years old.
At this point we say goodbye, but It won't be difficult to find your way back to your hotel. Your guide will be happy to offer further instructions on where to go and how to go back to some of your favorite spots on this Rome bike tour!

However, everything went so smoothly and after 30 minutes of riding I became more comfortable. Rome is a breathtaking city and actually bigger than I originally thought. The bike tour was the best way to see all of Rome within a few hours. I am going to Florence tomorrow and hoping I can do another one there too...more
