Explore Rome as the City Comes to Life and Enjoy a Glass of Local Red Wine

Rome is always beautiful, but The Eternal City is at its very best at night.  As the sun sets and the working day ends, our this tour dives straight into the neighborhoods and backstreets that are the beating heart of the city.  We’ll see the Trastevere neighborhood as it comes alive with Romans at play.  Its overflowing restaurants and terraces are the true embodiment of ‘La Dolce Vita’.  Your guide will point out the glamorous Via Condotti, famed for both the Spanish Steps and the epicenter of high fashion in the Italian capital.  We'll mix unknown with the world famous, including hidden gems that make Rome sparkle.  To arrive at the columned entrance to St Peter’s Basilica at the golden hour as the crowds clear is an unforgettable moment.  Pausing alongside one of Rome's famed bridges for a glass (or two!) of local red wine is the perfect break in a memorable evening.  This tour is a wonderful adventure on its own, or why not it in addition to our Day Bike Tour?  It's certainly one of the best ways to experience Rome in all its glory.

The perfect complement to our Rome Day Bike Tour, on this evening bike tour you will head out to discover the little streets and hidden gems of the popular area called “Trastevere”. Famous for overflowing restaurants, street food, and nightlife, this is the beating heart of “La Dolce Vita”. Passing through the Trastevere, we will visit the medieval and Catholic part of the city, traveling as far as the great columned entrance to Saint Peter’s Basilica and Castel Sant’Angelo. On a bridge with a truly majestic view, your guide will open some local red wine and try to convince you the regional grapes around Rome are superior to those found in Tuscany! In the last part of the tour, we will give you a glimpse of the glamorous side of the eternal city, taking via Condotti (Rome’s 5th Avenue) to visit the Piazza del Popolo and the Spanish steps. *Please note that we do not have trailers/tag-alongs available for children on this tour. We ask that all children be capable of riding their own bike, or for children 1-3 years old, you can reserve a baby seat.

How difficult is the cycling?

Our Rome Night Bike Tour is a great way for intermediate bike riders to experience the city. While the ride itself is not difficult, we ask that all guests be comfortable riding a bike and confident in their own ability. Guests should have good balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. A lot of this tour will require riding with traffic and although we stick together as a group and carve out a lane for ourselves, we ask that everyone feel confident with their own ability. Everyone's safety is the most important aspect of the tour, and this is achieved by each rider's confidence in themselves and good communication throughout the tour.

If you're still unsure, we would love for you to come to our office about 30 minutes prior to your tour start time to give the bikes a test ride.

Will this tour be good for my kids?

We think so! And lots of families that have already joined us have thoroughly enjoyed their experience. This tour gets kids involved with the sites and it gets them excited about Rome. Our only request is that your children feel comfortable on bikes and that they have been riding for a while. Confidence riding in a group and navigating various surfaces such as cobbled streets are also key to their overall enjoyment of the tour.

All guests under 18 must be accompanied by an adult on the tour. We have various sized bikes to accommodate just about every size of rider, and you can select a smaller bike when choosing the 'children' option in the checkout. Just scroll down to see the various sizes and details about each bike.

Unfortunately, we do not have tricycles, tandems, or bikes with training wheels for adults or children that may be less confident in their riding ability.
