Tour description

Named after the emperor Vespasian, who most historians credit as its inventor, the Vespa is the most quintessentially Roman mode of transport and a true symbol of Italy. Okay, so the first part isn’t true, but the second certainly is. And when in Rome, what better way of exploring the Eternal City than by doing as the Romans do and hopping onboard a Vespa.

Your Rome Vespa tour takes you through the highlights of the Eternal City in the expert company of a certified guide. See such sights as the Colosseum and Roman Forum, the Capitoline and Aventine hills, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, and the Janiculum Hill. This is your private tour, so whatever you want to see, let us know and we’ll take you there.

Visit the historic center’s most iconic landmarks

Recreate that classic scene from Roman Holiday as your guide whizzes you through the beating heart of the Eternal City. Passing the stampeding hordes of marauding tourists, you’ll make your way to Piazza Navona to admire its flowing fountains and curious design (derived from the ancient structure that belies it).

Not far away is one of the city’s most enduring ancient monuments: Hadrian’s majestic Pantheon, a magnificent temple built in honor of all the gods. Your expert guide will tell you all you want to know about the monument, from its gripping history to its mind-blowing dimensions (did you know it still boasts the world’s largest free-standing dome?). Then hop back on your vespa and make your way to the next stop.

Admire the ancient city's most alluring attractions

Your Rome Vespa tour will take you on a memorable journey through the center of ancient Rome to its most imposing and iconic monument - the Colosseum. Your guide will bring this mighty amphitheater to life as you view its colossal exterior from the back of a Vespa.

Ride towards the Capitoline Hill, one of the ancient city’s most significant as it was home to the Temple of the Capitoline Triad. It was here victorious generals would arrive at the end of their triumphal parade. Now you can recreate the moment from the back of your very own motorized chariot, enjoying sweeping views over the Roman Forum.

Ascend some of Rome’s seven hills for sublime views over the city

No Vespa tour of Rome would be complete without discovering some of the Eternal City’s best-kept secrets. Your private driver will take you off the beaten path, driving you up the Aventine Hill for sublime views out over the city from the secret ‘Keyhole’ besides the bountiful Orange Garden.

Then there’s the Janiculum, known affectionately as both the Balcony and the Eighth Hill of Rome. Situated across the river from the Aventine, above the atmospheric medieval neighborhood of Trastevere, the Janiculum offers perhaps the most sublime panorama over Rome. Enjoy it to the max as you ascend it in style, discovering all its hidden secrets along the way. 

Customize your tour to include whatever sites you want

Because this is your own private tour, you can tailor it to include exactly the sites you want or leave it to the judgement of our expert guide who can select an itinerary based on your interests. Along the way, you can stop whenever you want to stretch your legs, snap some photos, and indulge in some gelato, coffee, or whatever else you like.
