Rome bike tours: Everything you need to know

When in Rome, why pick and choose which famous attractions you have time to see? Instead, join one of the Rome bike tours and cycle your way through ancient monuments, historical landmarks, and current culture. You will see much more than you ever could on foot. The food will be irresistible, so peddle your calories away as you gaze, gallivant, and gobble your way through the treasured “Eternal City.”

What can I expect on a Rome bike tour?

You are in for a treat! Strap on your helmet and prepare to see all the Roman architecture that you came for.

As you ride by the Pantheon, your tour guide will explain that this site used to serve as a temple for the Ancient Roman gods and many architects around the world have used it and still use it as inspiration for building and column designs.

You will cruise past the Coliseum, a massive amphitheater that comfortably sat 87,000 spectators in 72 AD. This 2,000-year-old stadium has incurred damage throughout the years but is still in pretty good shape, all things considered. The emperors used to provide free entry for locals, allowing them to watch the bloody gladiator contests, wild animal fights, and war reenactments.

If you choose the original Rome 3-hour bike tour, you will pedal past the Circus Maximus and see where the city hosted its famous chariot races. Also, on this tour, you will bike through the Vatican City, the place that birthed the Roman Catholic religion and still houses the Pope.

Choose the yellow bike tour and cycle through the secret streets and alleys of the Italian capital. Ride over the Tiber river and see Piazza Farnese, the palace that Michelangelo restored, and the canopy-like trees in Villa Borghese. Stop to make a wish and toss a penny into the Trevi Fountain. This magnificent fountain stands 85-feet high and almost 65-feet wide, taking the prize for Rome’s largest fountain and, arguably, the most beautiful.

How big are the bike tour groups?

The tours range in size. If you prefer a smaller group, you can choose the 3.5-hour small group bike tour. Including only 6 total bikers, you have space to ask your tour guide questions about each site. Not to mention that you’ll have more time to spend quietly marveling at church, temple, and forum ruins. Other tour groups can fit large families together in one group or allow you to meet new friends as you all view the city by bike.

How long is a typical bike tour in Rome?

Expect to spend 3-4 hours out and about on a bicycle. Many of the tours do not include refreshments, so time your meals and snacks accordingly.

What should I bring on my bike tour?

Your tour guide will provide you with a bicycle, helmet, and their own comprehensive knowledge of the city. Tie up your close-toed shoes, bring your sunglasses, and don’t forget a camera so that you can relive the magical moments when you return home. If you are traveling to Rome in the winter months, think about tossing an umbrella into your backpack. Some tours include a poncho, but it might be a good idea to bring your own as you never know when it may start raining.

Are there any evening bike tours in Rome?

Relax with an evening electric bike ride and watch Rome pass from dusk to dark. This electric bike tour accommodates those looking for a restful ride in addition to anybody with physical limitations. The tour also provides child seats so your children can join you on your nighttime tour.

Can I bring the whole family on a bike tour of Rome?

As long as you are present, above the age of 18, and consider yourself an above-average bicyclist, you can bring children under the age of 10. Children from 10-18 must have a parent accompany them as well. Keep in mind that the city consists of a lot of cobblestone pathways and can turn into a bumpy ride. If a person in your party is pregnant, it is recommended that she opt out of the bike tour to ensure her and her baby’s safety. Since the tour also takes about 3-4 hours, make sure that your small children peddling on their own can adapt to the long ride.

We went on a 7 person cycling tour of the Via Appia and catacombs on a very hot day in July. Overall, the experience was fantastic. The group was a mix of people with varying physical conditioning levels but the easy to use e-bikes leveled the field, making the 5 hour tour pleasurable for all. Our guide, Alessio, was enthusiastic, helpful and knowledgeable when it came to both ancient history and navigating the city. We had a good sprinkling of break times, information stops and a very good refreshment stop at a cafe. I came away feeling enriched and happy.

A fantastic experience with great guides to ensure an enjoyable and fun bike ride whilst visiting various locations around Rome. A fun and informative experience. There was not one negative aspect of the tour. You experience a lot of Rome without having to travel all the main roads. The guides show you Rome utilising a lot of back streets with lots of hidden gems. The bikes make it easy to get around and you are never left alone. The group stays together from start to finish. Well recommended.

This was an Excellent eperience, our guide David was absolutely wonderful and knowledgable, he took me and two my two children (10 and 14) on a great roudabout of Rome and made sure that whatever we did not see on foot by then, we covered on bikes. It was definetly one of the best choices I could have made to spend our last day in Rome! I absolutely RECOMMEND!!!!

This was a great way to explore the wider ancient Rome easily, even on a very hot day. Leo was a considerate and fun guide.

Excellent! Very good bike maintenance. Very good guide. We covered everything in 4 hours.
