Sunset Cycle – Gardens and Views

Experience a Night in Rome! 

Cycle at a time when the crowds and heat are less whilst the visual impact is more as the sun set brings the cold stone to life.

Visit the medieval quarter for a quick drink after having climbed up to the Garden of the Oranges.

Pass the main sites of Campo de Fiori, Piazza Navona and the Pantheon before arriving at Piazza del Popolo.

Cycle to the top of the Pincio hill through the Borghese Gardens for a view of the sun setting behind the dome of St. Peters and pass the Spanish steps on the way down.

What to Expect

Aventine Hill

Overlook the Circus Maximus from the Aventine Hill, with the Palace of the Emperors in the background. At the top is the Garden of the Oranges and the Keyhole of the Order of Malta.

Tiberian Island and Trastevere

Below near the river is the medievil quarter known for its food and night life. A quick ride down to the island brings us to this charming neighborhood. Pass by the main square of Santa Maria in Trastevere with its synonymous church.

Historical Center

Pass through the main square of Piazza Navona as well as the Pantheon and Via del Corso alll the way to Piazza del Popolo. Passing out of the roman gate Porta Flaminio takes out of the roman walls.

Pincio Hill

Leading up through the gates of the Villa Borghese is a tree lined road, taking us into the gardens of this nobile family. From the balcony overlooking the Vatican and Borgo Pio, we can admire the sunsetting behind the Dome of St. Peters.

The Remaining Sights

On our way back to the Colosseum we pass the Spanish Steps, coming down from the Borghese Gardens. Further along the way we come to the Trevi Fountain until eventually arrive at Piazza Venezia with its ominous monument to Italy.

    We had a tour with Redbicycle in the end of June and liked it very much, it was our first day in Rome and we saw most of the historic centre and have seen places we wouldn’t have time to see otherwise. we were a family of 6 people. It was a bit busy on the roads with people but we felt safe and it is much easier and faster to cover the distances on the bike in hot weather. Glenn is very knowledgable and helpful and bikes are in very good condition. We had some difficulty finding him because we booked through the website so I think it is better to contact him before the tour.
