When you are searching for the best bike tours Rome has to offer, Top bike has a wide variety of options available throughout the year. For those who want to fully experience the heart of the city, we designed three great bike tours in Rome.
If you have half a day to spend, our 4-hour City Center Highlights bicycle tour (Rome within the city walls) can be the ideal introduction to many must-see sites in the historic center.

Not only will the ride help you map out this central area of the city, but through our guide's explanations, you will also benefit from a general historical framework which could be useful for any further discoveries you will make in the upcoming days of your stay.

Full Day Electric Bike Tour Rome: Italy at its best...

If you can't wait to indulge yourself in a full city experience and you are searching for a Rome cycling tour that covers all the highlights, including the Saint Peter Basilica and Castel Sant'Angelo, we present to you the 7-hour Rome in One Day tour. Don't worry about the pace and length: just like all of our tours, this is an electric bike tour.
Rome is rather hilly, so you will appreciate pedaling on two wheels with an electric motor - especially in the summer months! Moreover, this tour includes a lunch in an Italian trattoria, which makes this bike tour of Rome quite the typical Italian experience.

A different yet extraordinary Rome bike tour

As for a splendid bike tour, Rome has even more to offer besides the formidable historic center. Are you ready for an epic off-the-beaten-path ride, away from the vibrant city, plunging in nature and surrounding yourself with incredible historic structures?
If your heart starts beating a little faster as you read this, our Ancient Appian Way, Catacombs and Park of the Aqueducts tour is the perfect solution for you: a ride that has been rated by our guests as one of the best bike tours Rome can offer. Gear-up and pedal on our tough tires on one of the most important Roman roads, towards the stunning Ancient Aqueducts.
The 6-hour version of this Rome bike tour includes a visit of the famous catacombs of St. Callixtus or St. Sebastian.
In this 27-km (17-mile) tour we explore the history- and landscape-rich countryside of Rome, riding predominantly on off-road surfaces including unpaved roads and dirt paths. For this reason we rate the ride as intermediate in difficulty, but rest assured: the trip is perfectly doable for anyone who can confidently ride a bicycle! As on all our tours, here too we chose all the safest and easiest route options available (including bicycle lanes where possible). And if the length of the ride troubles you, fear not: an Electric-assist bicycle is included by default!

Panoramically photogenic: possibly one of the best bike tours in Rome

We tailored our Roman Views tour especially for travelers who adore panoramas. On all of our bike rides in Rome the camera could potentially shoot over-hours, but this excursion tops all others in the photographic opportunities it offers. If you like to see the city at large and gaze at the hills, iconic structures and domes from a higher ground, this may be the bicycle tour for you. Discover how photogenic Rome can be from a birds-eye perspective.
Spin with one of our skillful guides up to the roof of the city (Janiculum hill), to find out that this is one of those bike tours Rome looks different through, but spectacular for sure! After the pleasant downhill ride you can rest your wheels on the kickstand to marvel at the vast Saint Peter Square.

Why cycling in Italy? (and two alternative bicycle experiences)

One of the reasons travelers choose La Bella Italia is the abundance of beautiful seas, cities and scenic countryside. For a city bike tour, Rome (Italy's historic core) is an outstanding place to discover the remarkable fusion of history and modern day life. A Rome bicycle tour will boost your imagination and make history come alive through the explanations of our guides.
For our guests with different scenic wishes, we suggest two special day tours outside of Rome.
For those who have experienced the capital several times already, we developed the Appia Antica and Castel Gandolfo with Lunch - an outstanding ride to Castel Gandolfo (the Summer residence of the Pope) and Lake Albano (a small but deep lake of volcanic origin). On this trip, we ride on the green banks of the lake and enjoy a voluptuous Italian lunch there, before pedaling back the complete surviving stretch of the Ancient Appian Way, slightly downhill.
The second option, Alviano, Bagnoregio and Orvieto with Wine Tasting is a picturesque countryside ride towards two famous medieval hilltop towns: Civita di Bagnoregio and Orvieto. You will be impressed!

How safe are you on a Rome bike tour with us?

A Rome bicycle tour with us is as safe as it gets! While Rome slowly improves its cycling infrastructure, we have designed carefully planned routes combining traffic-free sections with stretches of limited traffic. Above all, our expert, safety-conscious local guides are determined to put you at ease on your tour, because safety is our top priority. Each and every Rome Bike Tour includes a safety helmet for everyone and a bottle of water to make sure you stay hydrated throughout the ride.
Rome is full of hidden gems. However, reaching them across smooth cycling surface isn't always simple or even possible. This is why quality equipment from world-renowned brand Cannondale, solid bike components and thorough and regular bicycle maintenance can make or break a cycling experience in the Eternal city. Our Top Bike mechanics know this best: all our bikes are checked after every single use in order to have components perfectly tweaked or, if necessary, replaced.
Riding with children is also a familiar sight, so we are prepared: we have a wide variety of child-seats, tag-alongs and children's bicycles available. Cycling in Rome is a priceless experience for children too!
