Let’s face it: Rome today is a crowded and busy city: It has 5 million inhabitants, 2 million cars and 600 thousands motorscooters. All these wheels run on roads that were built by the Romans and by the Popes many centuries ago when Rome had not even 500 thousand dwellers.
In the recent years, although the subway lines are getting a boost, the inhabitants of Rome discovered that the scooter is the fastest way to get from point A to point B. Following this pattern, our sightseeing company has decided to introduce tours aboard of Vespas scooters driven by our local drivers.
You may be wondering why such a tour is needed in the Eternal City: the answer is that a tour on a Vespa posits itself between a bus tour and a walking tour.
VESPA VERSUS BUS TOUR
A tour on a motorcycle allows to enter into the nooks and crannies of the monuments of Rome, such as Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps, whereas a tour with a bus has specific stops where people can get on and off. Very often these stops are far from the monuments and groups have to walk to reach the entrance to the monuments they want to see.
VESPA VERSUS WALKING TOUR
Sightseeing Rome with a Vespa is similar that seeing Rome on foot but with a great difference: in 3 hours of walking around Rome you will never be able to see the same amount of monuments you can see by traveling on a Vespa. That is for sure: in this case quantity is premium especially if you do not have so many days at disposal in Rome.
THE LOCALS KNOW ROME REALLY WELL

NO NEED TO PARK OUR SCOOTERS
By using our drivers, you can get off the motorcycle and admire the place in front of you with no rush. If you want to take a picture or a selfie in Rome, you really can do that because all the responsibility of the driving and the parking is on us and not on you.
