Stop from time-to-time to take pictures of sites en route, such as the Arch of Constantine and Circus Maximus. See curious sights, such as the secret keyhole of Aventine Hill, and the charming Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta (Piazza of the Knights of Malta). Drive along the Lungotevere, following the banks of the River Tiber. And cross into Trastevere, where the tight streets are a breeze for vehicles as small as the Fiat 500! Your guide will give brief explanations in English or French, before you head off again, never going faster than 18.5 mph (30 kmph). Vehicles even have a soft-top roof so you can enjoy the sun. Stop for a cappuccino or espresso, or one of the most incredible ice creams in Rome. Please note: driver must be in possession of a European Union or an International driving license  If you don’t feel like driving, then a driver can be provided for a small surcharge. The tour is designed to reach spots that the big hop-on, hop-off buses can’t get to. And undoubtedly you’ll feel like a movie star on the red carpet as you turn heads wherever you go. You can choose between 2 different options: a 90-minute tour or a 3-hour tour.

What people are saying about Colle del Gianicolo

You HAVE to take this tour! I have visited Rome several times and did the same old tours and I learned more and had more fun on the vespa tour then any time prior. We had the most knowledgeable, fun and cutest guide(I can say that because I'm old) ever; you must request Cesare. He showed us things and answered all of our questions. He let us shop the local paintings and just enjoy our surroundings instead of hustling us through like cattle. He bought us some ice cream and a drink of our choosing. I was so impressed with him I decided that I am going to cancel my tour bookings this summer and book with him. Not only is he amazing but his mom is as well, it is family owned which makes it even better. She will contact you on locations, which they are very flexible, and answer any questions that you may have.

Great way to spend a morning. Took us to see many of Rome's less well known but no less worh seeing sites. Places you wouldn't normally go but really should. Roberto was a knowledgeable and engaging guide, who loves Rome. I really do recommend seeing Rome by vespa.
