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!
We will start this Rome Bike Tour off by cruising down the road surrounded by the Ancient Imperial forums.
Our first major stop will be the Colosseum! You will get to take some amazing photos of the famous monument, and hear some cool things about the legendary gladiator arena!
Our electric bike ride will take us along to visit the Circus Maximus, the biggest stadium ever built by the Romans!
Heading up the hill, we will find ourselves in one of the most charming gardens of Rome! These electric Rome city bikes make it easy riding up any hill!
First we will admire the amazing view of the Roman Forum, and then we will explore a piazza designed by Michelangelo!
After cruising through a maze of narrow roads, you will be stunned to suddenly find yourself face-to-face with the most beautiful fountain in the world!
The most monumental staircase in Rome! Learn what the steps were made for and why they are considered "spanish".
One of the most important stops on our Rome bike tour - Admire the oldest building in Rome and one of the most famous ancient monuments in the world!**
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!
We will spend time in some of the oldest parts of Rome, get to admire the city from the river and learn about the history of the Jewish community of Rome.
We will ride by this ancient theater and you will discover that it was the inspiration for the more famous Colosseum!
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. E-bikes also do not come in youth or childrens sizes as they are motorized. 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 can purchase a "student (18 - 25)" ticket for them. 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 as we travel at a relaxed pace, 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 over 115kg (250lbs).
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 the city center and glide up the Aventine Hill to witness one of the most picturesque views of the entire city. On the hill, you'll have time to take photos at 3 points of interest - the Rose garden, Orange garden and secret keyhole.
We then descend back down the hill and stop at 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.We then descend into
With a short cycle past the Greek Ghetto, our guide will lead the way as you continue to the Capitoline Hill. If you were looking for that postcard view looking down into ancient Rome, then this is where you'll get it. At the best view point on the hill, you will hop off your bike to enjoy one of 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, we've only selected a few good ones and your E-bike will give you the push you need, so you will never feel tired. Biking in Rome has never been so easy!
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! We'll stop in a small park with a view onto the side of the colosseum for a quick break and lots of photos.
As you glide towards 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 over 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 then continue to the most famous stairs in the world and home of one of the most iconic film scenes of all time - Audrey Hepburn and her gelato - 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!
There are few emotions as high as entering a building that dates back 2,000 years and is still intact. This is what you'll experience when you visit the Pantheon, a mysterious beauty that still baffles archaeologists today. At the Pantheon, you'll have time to get off your bike and explore. If you want to enter the Pantheon, you will be charged a small ticket fee at the door. If you prefer to admire the structure from the outside, then there's no better way to do so than with a gelato in hand. Luckily, The Roman Guy loves stuffing his face with gelato, so our guides know the best places.
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!
