Experience Itinerary

Arrival and Vespa Tour

Arrival in Italy: Rome. Your driver will pick you up at the airport and take you to your hotel in central Rome

Check-in at your Hotel.

For the afternoon we have reserved a very special sightseeing day in Rome: a half day VESPA TOUR (Escorted). The best way to see Rome is from a bike, preferably a motorized one. Rome was not built for taxis and buses but for carriages and…Vespas! Each of you will seat on the back of a Vespa being driven by an expert local driver. One of the drivers is a fully authorized guide. There will be stops every 15 min so the guide can explain you all the sites visited.

You will experience and see sites, neighbourhoods & locations that are not available by foot. From the Colosseum to the Vatican, via Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and Castel Sant’Angelo. The Caracalla Baths and the Appian way, the Circo Massimo, the Aventine Hill, the Garden of Oranges, the ‘Gianicolo’ and the Garibaldi park with its magnificent views of beautiful Rome are some of the unique stops on this tour and, of course, this being Italy, there will also be stops for coffee and gelato!

This tour is very fun and will give you a great city overview and the chance to visit places that you probably cannot reach on your own.
