Cycling in Rome on a guided bike tour can be a great way to see the sites and enjoy the wind in your hair but be-ware!
Rome has a notorius reputation for being unsafe and unfriendly towards cyclists. But this isn’t the full truth, especially since the end of covid-19 restrictions as more and more bike lanes have been allowing bikers and cyclists safer routes through the city.
Some of the best bike tours of Rome will take you past main monuments such as the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps whilst other bike tours might focus on the panoramic views from Romes Seven Hills. In addition to these principal attractions, there are the villas and parks to cycle through such as Borghese Gardens and the Appia Antica Regionale Park.
On average a bike tour of Rome can cost between €35-€60 depending on whether its an Ebike Tour of Rome or with a normal non electric bicycle .
The length of a Rome Bike Tour isn’t usually more than 4 hours since it starts to get tiring weaving between side streets, stopping at monuments and dodging pedestrains.
All in all, we suggest choosing a private bike tour of Rome since it will allow you to choose your start time, set your own itinerary and obviously who you cycle with!
