Rome, 1997. 

A young and penniless university student was shooting daggers at her scooter, a charming yet flaky red Honda Vision that had broken down once again.

The little money she had earned with her babysitting and private lessons had already been set aside for a trip to London, where she planned to go and stay for the summer, working and learning English; There was no way she could repair her old beloved steed, an essential in the urban survival kit of many Romans and companion of thousands of teenage adventures.

Setting aside the public transport option, that, by the way, is still not an option for some residents, she suddenly had her epiphany: why don’t I simply buy a bike?

The elegant, minimal style, cool blue city bike she ended up buying didn’t just solve her problems but also became an unexpected opportunity.

She didn’t only buy a new, cheap and efficient way to reach her University, she also got new glasses that gave her a more vivid and colourful view of the chaotic Rome she had passed by every day.

Consider that 20 odd years ago, Rome didn’t have a cycling culture at all. It was pretty hard to go around by bike (a very tough combination of traffic and hills) but, with music in her ears, wind in her hair, happiness in her legs, it was actually fun and gave her a new view of the City, that went above and beyond her imagination

24 years later that same girl, Francesca, after having set up with her partner many a bike tour in Turin, Milan and Verona, is now back in her City, this time on a comfortable e-bike ;), to design a new Rome e-bike Tour.

In her plans, you will start your tour cycling along the Tiber River that flows through the eternal and immense Rome, with the same irregular flow of the destiny of the “The Great Beauty”.

ROME HIGHLIGHTS SMALL-GROUP E-BIKE TOUR
Discover Rome cycling

Joining us, you experience Rome’s new and authentic perspective. Nature, art, history and lifestyle, well balanced, to make you enjoy the Eternal City at its best, in and out the most beaten paths.

The cosy atmosphere of the small groups, the fascination of a full of imagery narrative, the welcoming and charismatic attitude of our local guides. All to make your half-day tour the highlight of your trip to Rome.

Start your Rome e-bike tour from the elegant Prati district, a charming area off-the-beaten-path for many travellers even if it is just a few steps from St. Peter’s and the Vatican state.

Hop on your e-bike at our beautiful location on Tiber River and be ready to embrace the eternal vastity of Italy’s Capital, that only in appearance is in no need of a presentation.

Cycling along the Tiber River we cross it by one of the several bridges we will encounter, and off we ride towards the first public garden of the city, a treasure chest of art, nature, history and breath-taking panoramas: Villa Borghese.

Pedalling from the Pincio Terrace we head towards the monumental and elegant square Piazza del Popolo for centuries a spectacular entrance to the heart of the capital.

Cycling down the Tridente you feel literally teleported into the Ancient Rome time while we get closer to the Ara Pacis Augustae, the Altar of Augustan Peace, the monument commissioned by the Roman Senate in 13 BC to honour the return of Augustus to Rome after three years in Hispania and Gaul now conserved in the architect Meier’s contemporary building.

We are in the heart of the city centre and, peeking from afar the world-famous steps of Piazza di Spagna and the refined elegance of the Church of the Santissima Trinità dei Monti, we take less crowded, narrow old streets and reach picturesque little squares where painters like Caravaggio intensely lived creating their renowned masterpieces.

From there we reach the sacrality of the Pantheon, the airy and spectacular Piazza Navona and the colourful and picturesque Campo de Fiori. In such a small area you will feel the layering of a multitude of styles and centuries creating an unparalleled and surprising effect for travellers, and believe us when we say this, for locals too.

Leaving Campo de Fiori, through the area known as the Jewish Ghetto, we will reach the Piazza del Campidoglio on the Capitolium or Capitoline Hill between the Forum and the Campus Martius. Capitolium is one of the Seven Hills of Rome from where you have a panoramic view of the Roman Forum.

So we cycle down the Fori Imperiali and the Colosseum and, last but not least, the Circo Massimo. Few places on earth have the same “time machine power” as this one has. Be prepared to fly back again in time with your bike to the glorious past of the Roman Empire.

The Tiber river is waiting to accompany us on our ride back to the meeting point. But we cannot go back before admiring the marvel of the Isola Tiberina and the grandeur of Castel Sant’Angelo that reminds us of the power of the papacy.

Did you catch the vastity? See you there!

For Rome’s itinerary, we thank Maria Cristina Richiardi, art historian and licenced guide of Rome, for the precious and passionate support in the tour design.

WHAT OUR HAPPY CLIENTS SAY

bike-and-the-city-tour-bicicletta-milano-roma-verona-12

FUN MORNING

 I went to Milan with my 16 year old daughter – we both enjoyed this tour. I haven’t been on a bike for some years and am middle aged, overweight and rather unfit, I found the bike easy to ride – even managed the couple of small hills (I mean small) – 99% was on the flat. We stopped at regular intervals to hear stories about Milan and its history, found the places we wanted to visit again and explore further. It was very sociable, enjoyed meeting the others in our party. Most of the ride was in cycle lanes, parks and pedestrianised areas. Had fun 🙂

EXCELLENT TOUR

The highlight was the rooftop Duomo experience. The bicycles were comfortable and the cycling tour easy. Milan is fun to get around by bike. Our guide Sylvie was knowledgable and engaging, really outstanding.

AWE INSPIRING TOUR

Silvia, our guide, was extremely attentive and made sure my two teenage boys were constantly engaged. The bikes were sparkly brand-new. She was considerate at all times putting safety first. I believe a 10 year old would have a marvelous time doing the tour as safety was put first.Its a charming way to get feel for such a big city and leaves you with ideas of places to go back and explore further. In a nutshell highly recommendable.
