Cruise the narrow streets of Rome on a Vespa motorbike or in a vintage Fiat for an authentic, unforgettable sightseeing experience. Here’s how to see the city’s must-see sights in speedy style—while feeling like you have stepped into an Italian film.
- Go sightseeing in Rome on a Vespa or Fiat, either independently or with a guide.
- Travel through the city like a local and see places that many tourists miss.
- Compact, nimble vehicles make navigating the city streets easy, thus giving plenty of time to explore the sites, stop for photo ops, and find the perfect café for an espresso or gelato break.
- Check out famous monuments such as the Colosseum, Circus Maximus, and St. Peter’s Basilica.
- Choose a guided tour for expert insight into Rome’s history, culture, and hot spots—and so you can sit back and relax while your driver navigates the crowded streets.
- Guided tours generally last three to four hours; self-driving tours generally last a full day.
Confident drivers who want to tour Rome independently can rent their own Vespa or Fiat. Self-driving tours let you decide where to go and when, so they are a fun option for a wholly customized experience of the city. Rentals generally include a helmet and lock (for Vespa renters), helpful itinerary tips and advice, and a map—but be prepared to navigate the city on your own.
A guided Vespa or Fiat tour includes a knowledgeable tour guide who can help you navigate the notorious traffic congestion in Rome. Get an insider’s perspective on the city as your guide takes you to must-see monuments, photogenic viewpoints, and interesting neighborhoods. Tour options include self-driving guided tours and riding as a passenger while your guide drives. Either way, you can explore the city expertly and efficiently, stopping at the points of interest of your choosing.
