What to Expect
Start with a pickup direct from your Rome hotel by Vespa. After hopping on behind your guide, zip around the capital’s streets. Swing past Piazza Venezia to see the striking Vittorio Emanuele II monument, and hear tales of modern Italian history from your guide. Continue to the Imperial Fora to learn about life during the days of the Roman Empire and then jump off the Vespa for photos by the Colosseum. From the iconic stadium, venture onward to find some of Rome’s lesser-visited gems. Admire the Baths of Caracalla and the ancient Appian Way, as you travel further out to the foodie enclave of Testaccio, where coffee and gelato await. Feeling relaxed, travel up Aventine Hill for a keyhole peek at St. Peter’s Basilica. From there, it’s back to your Rome hotel, checking out the chariot track of Circus Maximus along the way.

Had to write about this brilliant way to see Rome on the back of your own personal Vespa with a local guide/driver. My daughter booked this for us before coming to Rome. It's an amazing way to see parts of the city you wouldn't get to see without the kind of knowledge only truly

This was a blast! I saw parts of Rome I never would have seen without this tour. It was so fun and I tell everyone about it first. Simon was the best, and I had left my sweatshirt with him at the end, and before I could get back to my hotel, he had returned it. I would

Alessandro and Jacobo were amazing tour guides-- we didn't realize when we booked how educational the tour would be. (We just thought it would be fun to ride vespas through Rome). Our guides were very knowledgeable, had perfect English, and were very safe drivers. They adapted
