Rome by Vintage Vespa: Classic Rome Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Explore Rome by Vespa and cover more ground than you would on a standard walking tour. This private vintage Vespa tour introduces you to big-name sights, such as the Colosseum, along with quirky attractions like the keyhole view of St. Peter’s Basilica from Aventine Hill. Just hop on behind your guide, and hang on tight as you travel around the city like a local.
  • Put a fun twist on a classic Rome sightseeing tour with a private guide
  • Get comfortable on the Vespa with a safety briefing before you start
  • 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.

My mom and I went on this tour, and it’s a private tour—they picked us up at 10 AM and dropped us off at 1, wherever we needed to be. I really wasn’t sure what to expect because I’ve never been on a scooter ride, but I felt so safe, and this was so much fun to go on. My mom was

Alessandro and Jacobo were amazing tour guides-- we didn't realize when we booked how educational the tour would be. (We just thought it would be fun to ride vespas through Rome). Our guides were very knowledgeable, had perfect English, and were very safe drivers. They adapted
