  • Radio commentary

  • Time to walk around and take photos at each site

  • Explore Rome’s most iconic landmarks and neighborhoods

Hop Aboard Your Buggy

To begin zipping through the enchanting streets of Rome, meet your local guide at your designated meeting point on Vicolo D’Orfeo. Along with the other excited travelers in your group, you will be set up with your cozy, 2-person electric buggy.

Once everyone is ready to go, it’s time to buckle up and get ready to explore the streets of Rome like never before while your guide leads the way in their own buggy!

Castel Sant'Angelo

From the comfort of your cozy buggy, follow your friendly guide to your first breathtaking stop of the day. Your journey through Rome begins at Castel Sant'Angelo (St. Angel’s Castle), located in Parco Adriano. While this jaw-dropping, cylindrical building is now a fascinating museum, it was originally intended to be a mausoleum for the Roman Emperor Hadrian, and was later used as a fortress, castle, and prison.

St. Mary’s in Trastevere

After snapping a few photos of the captivating Castel Sant'Angelo, hop back in your buggy and zip along the majestic River Tiber as you make your way to the idyllic neighborhood of Trastevere. Your guide will soon lead you to the beautiful St. Mary’s Basilica. This historic church is one of the oldest in Rome, dating back to the 340s.

Take in the Views from Aventine Hill

Next, your expert guide will lead you to Rome’s most elusive viewpoint. From the Aventine Hill, an unassuming door actually holds an awe-inspiring secret. Peer through its keyhole for a perfectly framed view of St. Peter’s Cathedral.

From here, your guide will take you to the stunning Orange Garden, which is also located on Aventine Hill. This picturesque, hilltop garden is lined by gorgeous orange trees and offers some of the most captivating views of Rome’s cityscape.

Immerse Yourself in Ancient Rome

After admiring sweeping views of the Eternal City, continue to immerse yourself in Rome’s fascinating history, beginning with the Roman Forum. Admire the ancient ruins of what were once important government buildings, as your knowledgeable guide explains more about this site’s rich history.

Then, hop back in your buggy for a short ride to the nearby Capitoline Hill, one of the Seven Hills of Rome. From here, marvel at the famous Temple of Capitoline before moving on to one of the most exciting stops of the tour.

The Colosseum

Zip over to one of Rome’s most iconic sites, the ancient Colosseum. This historic amphitheater is the largest one that has ever been built. Placed in the center of the city, this is one of Rome’s most treasured landmarks. Capture its grandeur from the outside before jetting off to your next breathtaking stop.

Spanish Steps and Circus Maximus

Cruise through the city streets on your way to Piazza di Spagna, where your guide will take you to the famous Spanish Steps. Stretch your legs as you take in the intricate Baroque style of this historic staircase.

After popping back into your fun buggy, drive over to the famous Circus Maximus, which was once an ancient Roman stadium for chariot racing.

Piazza del Popolo and the Trevi Fountain

Continue traversing through the streets of Rome as you’re led to Piazza del Popolo, a massive square known for containing the stunning Santa Maria del Popolo Basilica. After marveling at the sights of this prominent square, cruise down to the iconic Trevi Fountain.

This world-famous fountain was built in the 18th -century and is celebrated for being a late Baroque masterpiece. Toss a coin in the fountain as your guide details more about its fascinating history.

Piazza Navona and the Pantheon

Whiz through Rome’s narrow alleyways as you’re taken to Piazza Navona, one of Rome’s most magnificent squares. The beloved square holds three famous fountains, including the Fountain of the Four Rivers, the Fountain of Neptune, and the Fountain of the Moor.

After exploring the breathtaking square, ride over to one of the city’s most enchanting sites, the historic Pantheon. Originally built in 125 AD as a Roman temple, this ancient site became a Catholic church in AD 609. This is one of ancient Rome’s best-preserved monuments, and a truly striking piece of history to visit.

St. Peter’s Square

Hop into your charming buggy once more as your guide leads you to your last spectacular stop of the day, the majestic St. Peter’s Square. Located in Vatican City, this large piazza is where you’ll find the renowned St. Peter’s Basilica. Considered to be one of the biggest and most breathtaking squares in the world, this iconic site serves as a perfect ending to your memorable afternoon in Rome.

After snapping a few photos of the enchanting square, pile back into your buggy one last time as you follow your friendly guide back to your original meeting point. After dropping off your buggy, you’re free to continue exploring the Eternal City by foot!

Frequently Asked Questions

What to bring?

What to bring?

For non-European drivers, please remember to obtain an International Driver’s Permit in advance. Additionally, bring your camera along, as you’ll have the opportunity to stop and admire each landmark on this tour!

Is this tour run by The Tour Guy?

This tour is operated by one of our trusted and vetted partners in Rome.

What if I have concerns about my mobility on this tour?

While this tour does not require much walking and should not be a problem for most mobility concerns, our buggies unfortunately cannot accommodate wheelchairs.

What happens if it rains?

We run our buggy tours rain or shine!

Is there any chance my tour might be canceled?

On the rare occasion the tour is canceled, we'll inform you as soon as possible. We will work with you to reschedule your tour when possible or provide a full refund.

Is there a dress code to enter the religious sites on this tour?

You will not enter most sites on this tour, however, depending on the lines on the day of your tour, there is a chance that you will go inside St. Mary’s church in Trastevere and the Pantheon. In this case, we ask both men and women to cover knees and shoulders, otherwise you might be refused entry, and you’ll miss out on a portion of your tour. We understand the summers in Rome can be hot, so a great alternative is to bring a shawl/scarf/sweater with you. That way you can cover your knees and shoulders when necessary.

How comprehensive are the Colosseum and other portions of this tour?

In the spirit of seeing as much of Rome in one day as possible, all sections of this tour are abbreviated more than our dedicated Colosseum or site-specific tours. You'll still get to experience all the most important elements of these impressive attractions though.

Is lunch included in the price of the tour?

No, but you'll have a break to find delicious food, and your guide will be happy to recommend one of their favorite spots.

Can I bring my kids and do I have to pay for them?

Yes, kids are welcome on our buggy tours! Since these tours are priced per buggy, rather than per person, the price does not change for children.

Does this tour include hotel pickup?

No hotel pickup is included on this tour. You’ll meet your guide at the designated meeting point on Vicolo d’Orfeo.

Where does this tour end?

This tour ends back at your original meeting point, in Vicolo d'Orfeo, where you’ll drop off your buggy. You’re welcome to stay in the area and explore as long as you’d like!
