Overview
When in Rome, do as the locals do and zip around the city by Vespa. Riding on the back of the vintage scooter, you’ll see all the major landmarks and some lesser-known sights in one half-day tour. Bypass the traffic to discover piazzas and panoramas, and jump off to snap photos of the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, and more. The 3-hour private tour includes an espresso or gelato, plus your very own private driver.

Highlights
  • Put a fun twist on a classic Rome sightseeing tour with a private guide

  • Find the best photo stops at the Colosseum and ancient Appian Way
  • Enjoy door-to-door transport son the back of a vintage Vespa
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.
