Join a bike tour of Rome as a great way to see the city. Starting at 9:30 in the morning or either 2pm or 3pm (winter /summer) in the afternoon.

This tour is a great way to hear, learn and see how Rome started as a small village that would become Caput Mundi, the Capital of the World. Follow your guide on a well layed out route that offers even the most experienced Rome visitor new sites and trivia.

During the 4 hour tour in the morning we include a stop at a famous coffee bar near the Pantheon for a toilet break etc. as well as a stop at the Vatican to visit the piazza St Peter and St Peters Basilica (outside only). 

During the 3 hour afternoon tour we visit our favorite coffee bar for “the Best Cappuccino in Town” as the owner proudly states.

-Ancient Heart of Rome-

The first area covered during both our Morning and Afternoon tours includes those sites which most associate with Rome: The Colosseum and the Gladiators, The Palatine Hill and the Emperors and the Roman Forum and the Senate.In addition we also see the Circus Maximus, the Capitoline Hill (Morning Only)and the Theatre of Marcellus.

-Jewish Rome-

At the bottom of the Capitoline Hill, stretching along the opposite side of the river lies Romes medievil quarter. We pass through the Jewish Ghetto, which is today a very affluent area, on our way to Trastevere to experience a completely different side of Rome.

Vatican City (morning only)

A stop just outside the boundary of Vatican territory(directly infront of St. Peters Basilica) allows us to admire the heart of the catholic faith. Includes a look at the St Peters square, the Angelic Gate and the Castel of St. Angelo.

    We took the Sunset tour of Rome on the day we arrived. It was a great way to get an overview of Rome and the ride was quite enjoyable! After navigating a couple of car filled boulevards as we met at the Colosseum, we found ourselves on a bike path up to the Gate on Aventino Hill and then down to the bike path that runs along the river. Glenn was very friendly and helpful and gave us background info on all of the sites. Highly recommend taking a bike tour of Rome!

    Thanks for that Debbie & Co. I will be adding more to the site about how best to appreciate Rome in the following weeks.

    We had a great time on our Red Bicycle city tour. When I first arrived in Rome, I was intimidated by the scorching sun and restless traffic. Glenn took us on a private, calm and informative tour that included all the major sights, along with a stop in the Jewish Quarters. It was a perfect introduction to the city, and we highly recommend starting your visit to Rome with Glenn as your guide!

    My friend and I did the city tour with Glenn and enjoyed it very much. One thing we particularly enjoyed that is somewhat unique to this tour is that there were several real “stops” along the way with time to enjoy a pastry or some gelato. The tour we did was truly a great introduction to the highlights of Rome: the Colosseum, the Jewish Quarter, the Trevi Fountain, the Vatican, the Pantheon, even a brief ride right along the Tiber river! Bring a water bottle to rehydrate at the many fountains around the city, and you’re good to go!

    Just back from our trip in July 2018 and this was one of our favorite experiences during our trip in Rome. We took the evening tour (weather had cooled a bit) and had the most exceptional views of the Colosseum by twilight. Seeing some cool, secret places on bicycle was delightful and spared our feet from all the walking we had been doing. Sarah led our tour (along with Musa) and both were delightful, accommodating, funny and Sarah gave a very personal tour of her favorite spots. The aperitivo was a LOT of food and we loved taking the windy streets of Trastevere. I recommend this to anybody wanting to explore Rome without doing the same ‘ole touristy experience. This was a MUST-see tour! Great job to this team. Both Musa and Sarah were incredibly good with the small kids that were in our group. This tour group has bikes with carts to accommodate kids as well if you do this as a family – also fun for couples and adults as there is some drinking optional.
