Private Rome Electric Bike Tour Description

Your private 4-hour e-bike tour includes:

  • See ancient Roman ruins like the Colosseum, Circus Maximus, and Pantheon (from the outside)

  • Visit the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Tiber Island, and much more

  • Explore the hidden alleys and backstreets of central Rome

  • Panoramic viewpoints of the Eternal City

  • Professionally maintained electric bike

  • A fun, English-speaking private guide

 E-bikes aren't available in youth or child sizes, so riders must be 5' 2" (160cm) minimum.

Views of Rome from Aventine Hill

After picking up your bicycle in the city center, you'll pedal with ease up Aventine Hill to witness one of the most scenic panoramic views in of all of Rome. From the top, you'll be able to look over large parts of the city, and you'll have the chance to take photos at three of the hill's most beloved spots: the Rose Garden, Orange Garden, and Rome’s Aventine keyhole. Then, roll back down the hill and stop at one of the largest ancient stadiums ever built, the Circus Maximus.

Climb Rome’s Capitoline Hill

Your guide will lead the way as you continue past the Greek Ghetto and on to the Capitoline Hill. If you’re searching for that postcard view looking down into ancient Rome, then this is it. At the best vantage point on the hill, hop off your e-bike and admire the Roman Forum from above as your guide tells you some of the history of this historic site.

Rome was built on seven hills, but you don’t have to conquer all of them! We've chosen just a few of our favorite hills on this tour, and your electric bike supplies you with the push you need to get over them. Cycling around Rome has never been so easy!

See the Mighty Colosseum

Next up on your e-bike tour is the awe-inspiring Colosseum—the famous amphitheater where gladiators and wild animals once spilled blood in front of 60,000 screaming spectators. You'll stop off at a small park with a great view the Colosseum for a quick break, where you can take in the scenery and get those all-important photos.

With a history that dates back over 2,000 years, this incredible structure shows the sophistication of the Roman Empire. If you want to go inside the Colosseum and visit the Underground and Arena Floor, we also offer bestselling Rome tours that include privileged access.

Trajan’s Column, Trevi Fountain, and Spanish Steps

As you follow your private guide through the Roman streets towards Piazza Venezia, a massive piece of stone called Trajan’s Column comes into view. When he was an Emperor, Trajan decided to build this huge column as a tribute to his victory over the ancient Dacians. Moving swiftly through some more classic Roman back roads, you'll stumble 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'll return to Rome. After the Trevi Fountain, you'll continue on to the most famous staircase in the world: Rome’s Spanish Steps. One of the most iconic scenes in movie history was filmed here, when Audrey Hepburn enjoys a gelato in the the film Roman Holiday.

Your guide will tell you the fascinating history of each of these classic Roman sites, and you'll have the chance to take some wonderful photos too.

The Ancient Pantheon

At the Pantheon, it’s time to hop off your e-bike and explore. Completed around A.D. 125 under Emperor Hadrian, the Pantheon was a truly extraordinary feat of architecture for the time. Next, you'll cruise past Piazza Navona, Campo de’ Fiori, and Piazza Farnese. These historic squares are known for their lively (and bloody) histories.

Visit the Trendy Trastevere District

You'll cross the river at Ponte Sisto, named after the 15th century pope who built the Sistine Chapel, and cross into Trastevere. Home to hundreds of bars and restaurants, the Trastevere district also contains some of Rome’s most beautiful streets. The whole district is a feast for the eyes, and also one of the best neighborhoods in Rome to hang out in. Your personal Roman guide can tell you the best places to eat and drink in Trastevere, so you can return to enjoy them later.

Cross Tiber Island into the Jewish Quarter

After your jaunt through Trastevere, your guide will lead you across the river again to 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, you'll cycle 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 Teatro di Marcello (the Theatre of Marcellus). This 2,000-year-old building may look like a mini-Colosseum, but it’s actually 100 years older.

Having seen the best of Rome in just a few hours, it's time to wave goodbye to your new group of friends. Your private guide will be happy to offer helpful advice on where to eat, drink, and fun things to do with the rest of your time in the city.

I've been a biker for years and think this is a fabulous way to see an area. You are intimate with what is going on, you can take your time and it is a lot of fun. We arrived at the tour office early. We were fitted and then went to a neighborhood restaurant for a coffee and croissant. Our guide was Demitri. He was very knowledgeable about Rome and all the sites + we visited. The first place was right across from the store. It was a stadium in ancient times and they had horse races going on the day of the tour. There were a lot of fun facts about Rome. All the sites we saw were stunning. Something about seeing them in person. Even stopped for Pizza. :) Dimitri was great. Can't say enough good about him. I have one recommendation: An e-bike is not the same animal as a bike. I would suggest that if you want to take this tour (which I recommend) that you rent an e-bike in your hometown and learn how to use it. Get that piece out of the way. Some things that you have to overcome are the cobble stone streets. That is a different dimension. The other piece are the walkers and traffic. Most of the tour is on designated bike paths there are times that you have to cross the streets and ride through crowds. Also the people have no awareness of you. They are out on their cell phones, talking, talking pictures. They do not hear you or your bike bell. I'm sure in a few trips I'd get very good and weaving in/out like everyone else. Practice before you come. It will make this tour more enjoyable.

Amazing experience and tour

Our guide was amazing at navigating through the streets and ensuring we got to experience everything while learning the history behind this great city. Definitely looking forward to coming back and doing this again.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to bring?

We will be outside the entire time, so make sure to bring a bottle of water and sunscreen in summer.

What kind of terrain will we be riding on?

Beautiful cobblestoned streets are part of what makes Rome so timeless and nostalgic, but it also means that we're in for a bit of a bumpy ride in places! You won't be jostled the entire tour, but keep in mind that some of the route is uneven.

What if it rains?

This tour usually runs rain or shine. If your guide deems the weather conditions unsafe for bike riding, the tour will be canceled for your own safety. We will do our best to reschedule you for another tour or offer you a full refund. We understand your time in Rome is limited, and we want you to experience as much as you can!

What should I wear?

Wear light, comfortable, and sporty clothes in the summer and always wear comfortable shoes or sneakers.

Do we go inside the Pantheon?

We recommend you go inside if there isn't a long line to get in. If the line to get in is too long, we'll recommend skipping entrance to the Pantheon to make sure you see all the other sites, but you can always visit again after the tour.

Is there a max weight limit for the e-bikes?

The e-bikes have a maximum weight capacity of 250 pounds.

How tall do you have to be to join this tour?

E-bikes do not come in youth or child sizes as they are motorized. Anyone riding the bikes must be at least 5' 2" (160 cm) tall at minimum. If your kids are tall enough and want to join the tour, please buy an adult ticket for them.

How old do you have to be to join this tour?

Participants must be 12 years old or older.

What to bring?

We will be outside the entire time, so make sure to bring a bottle of water and sunscreen in summer.

Do we go inside the Colosseum?

This e-bike tour does not include entry to the Colosseum. After seeing it from the outside, you'll likely want to explore the amazing interior, so book a Private Colosseum Tour for an amazing chance to see the ancient arena in-depth.
