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!
Cruise down the road surrounded by the Ancient Imperial forums.
Our first major stop is the Colosseum. Take some amazing photos of the famous monument, and hear some cool things about the legendary gladiator arena.
Visit the Circus Maximus, the biggest stadium ever built by the Romans.
Heading up the Aventine Hill, find yourself in one of the most charming gardens of Rome. Electric bikes make climbing up any hill easy.
First we admire the amazing view of the Roman Forum, and then explore a piazza designed by Michelangelo.
After cruising through a maze of narrow roads, find yourself face-to-face with the most beautiful fountain in the world: the Trevi Fountain!
The Spanish Steps are the most monumental staircase in Rome. Learn what the steps were made for and why they are considered Spanish.
The Pantheon is one of the most important stops on our Rome e-bike tour. Admire the oldest building in Rome and one of the most famous ancient monuments in the world.
There are so many beautiful public squares in Rome. Visit the most famous one: Piazza Navona.
The Piazza Farnese is now the location of the French Embassy in Rome. It is famed for the beautiful Palazzo Farnese, another work of genius by Michelangelo.
Crossing over one of the oldest bridges in Rome, enter the famous bohemian district of Rome, Trastevere.
This is the pulsing heart of the Trastevere neighborhood.
Spend time in some of the oldest parts of Rome and learn about the history of the Jewish community of Rome.
Pass by this ancient Teatro Marcello. The ancient theatre is the inspiration for the more famous Colosseum.
At The Roman Guy, we believe in maximizing your limited time while you vacation in Italy. This is why we offer an eco-friendly electric bike tour that showcases the best things to see in Rome. Did you know that summertime temperatures in the Eternal City sometimes reach up to ninety degrees? Spending four hours sightseeing on a Rome city tour in weather that hot is not for the faint of heart. On an e-bike tour of Rome however, not only do you exert less energy, but you also get to feel the wind blowing through your hair. Enjoy the freedom to explore Rome on a e-bike that effortlessly climbs hills - you barely even need to pedal!
This four hour e-bike tour includes (but is not limited to) The Colosseum, Jewish Ghetto, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and Circus Maximus. And while we do cover the best sightseeing places in Rome, this tour also takes you through lots of back streets, hidden piazzas, secret passageways and spots with amazing views. Keep your camera charged, because there are tons of opportunities for pictures taking. Before you book this e-bike tour of Rome, review the important information further down on this page.
After departing from the city center, glide up the Aventine Hill to witness one of the most scenic views of Rome. While on the hill, there are opportunities for taking photos at three points of interest: the Rose Garden, Orange Garden and Rome’s Aventine keyhole. Then, roll back down the hill and stop at the biggest stadium ever built, Circus Maximus. As you learn about the amazing history behind the stadium, the old movie “Ben Hur” is sure to come back to life in your imagination.
With a short cycle past the Greek Ghetto, follow your guide to the Capitoline Hill. If you’re looking for that postcard view looking down into ancient Rome - this is it. At the best view point on the hill, hop off your e-bike and admire the Roman Forum from an amazing vantage point. Rome was built on seven hills, but you don’t have to conquer all of them. We only choose a few good hills on this tour, and your electric bike supplies you with the push you need to get over them. Biking in Rome has never been so easy!
Next up on the e-bike Rome tour is the Colosseum, the famous arena where gladiators and wild animals once spilt blood in front of an audience of 60,000 screaming spectators. Stop off at a small park with a view onto the side of the Colosseum for a quick break and lots of photos. Used for gladiator and animal fights, mock sea battles, mythology drama shows and even public executions, The Colosseum is a must-see attraction in Rome.
As you glide towards Piazza Venezia, a massive piece of stone called Trajan’s column comes into view. As an Emperor, Trajan decided to build this huge column as a tribute to his victory over the ancient Dacians. After some more backroads, come upon the most famous fountain in the world, the Trevi Fountain. Legend has it, If you throw a coin from your right hand over your left shoulder, you are sure to return to Rome in the future. Then, continue on to the most famous stairs in the world - Rome’s Spanish Steps. This is where one the iconic scenes in “Roman Holiday” takes place, in which Audrey Hepburn enjoys one of the best things in Rome - gelato.
At the Pantheon, it’s time to hop off your e-bike and explore. Completed around 125 A.D. under Emperor Hadrian, the Pantheon is an extraordinary feat of architecture for the time period. Almost 2,000 years later it is still one of the world’s most important structures. If you want to enter the Pantheon, there is a small ticket fee at the door (not included in the e-bike ticket price).
If you prefer to admire the structure from outside, there’s no better way to do so than with a gelato in hand. Luckily, our local guides know where all the best places for gelato near the Pantheon are. Then, we cruise over to Piazza Navona finishing off on this side of the river with Campo de’ Fiori and Piazza Farnese. These two historic squares are known for lively, bloody histories.
We cross the river at Ponte Sisto, named after the 15th century pope who built the Sistine Chapel (notice the resemblance) and cross into Trastevere. Home to hundreds of bars and restaurants, the Trastevere district is also to some of Rome’s most beautiful streets. Trastevere is a feast for the eyes, and also one of the best neighborhoods in Rome to hang out in. Remember to ask your friendly local guide where the best places to eat and drink in Trastevere are so you can enjoy them later.
After your jaunt through Trastevere, cross the river again over Rome’s famous Tiber Island. Tiber Island is one of the oldest parts of Rome and is also home to the oldest bridge in the Eternal City. On the other side, take a journey through the narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter. To this day, the Jewish Ghetto still holds ties to the Jewish community in Rome. The final sightseeing attraction on the tour is the Theatre of Marcellus. This 2,000 year-old building may look like the Colosseum, but it is actually 100 years older.
At this point it time for goodbyes. Your guide is happy to offer helpful advice on how to get back to your hotel and also how to return to your favorite spots on this Rome e-bike tour!
