FAQ

  • Expand/Collapse Where is the meeting point?

    This tour meets at our office, located at Via dei Delfini 35/36, Rome. We are about a 5 minute walk from Piazza Venezia.

  • Expand/Collapse What cycling skill level do I need for this tour?

    While all of our tours maintain a leisurely pace, we want our guests to have fun and be safe, so being able to ride a bike is paramount.

    Our Rome Bike Tour is perfect for intermediate bike riders. You should have good balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. Most of this tour is on roads and although we stick together as a group and carve out a lane for ourselves, we ask that all guests feel confident with their riding ability. The road surfaces in Rome vary and may include cobbled streets as well as smooth gravel and pavement.

    Safety is our number one priority but confidence in yourself is the first step to overall group safety.

    If you're not sure how you'll fare, we invite you to come to our office about 30 minutes prior to your tour start time to try the bikes.

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for children?

    Yes! This bike tour is a wonderful way for kids comfortable on bikes to discover Rome. We only ask that your children have been riding for a while, are comfortable riding in a group, and can navigate riding a bike on various surfaces including cobbled streets.

    Please keep in mind that children under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult on the tour.

    • We have various sized city bikes to accommodate just about every size of rider, from extra small 20 inch wheeled bikes for riders that are 3.3ft (100cm) to extra large for riders up to 6.5ft (198cm).
    • 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.
