Itinerary

You should make your own way to the meeting point at Via di Sant’Eufemia #15.

Riding your comfortable rented bike, you will set off with your expert English-speaking tour leader. You will be able to stop and take pictures at the most photogenic spots.

Your route takes in the following highlights:

Colosseum: The largest amphitheater ever built in the Roman Empire and used for gladiatorial contests and spectacles such as animal hunts. Estimates say about 500,000 people and over a million wild animals died in the Colosseum games.

Vatican City: a walled enclave within Rome and the world’s smallest independent state! It is ruled by the Pope, who lives in the Apostolic Palace in the City. Also within the enclave are the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica.

Piazza Navona: a very long piazza built on the ruins of an ancient Roman sports stadium. The piazza marks the line of the race-track. With many fine buildings and three magnificent fountains, it includes some of the best examples of the Baroque in Rome.

Pantheon : originally built as a temple to all the gods of Ancient Rome. The best preserved of all Roman buildings, it has been in continuous use throughout its history. Since the 7th century it has been a Catholic church.

Piazza di Spagna : one of Rome’s prettiest squares. It lies at the bottom of the monumental staircase known as the Spanish Steps, said to be the longest and widest staircase in Europe. At the top of the stairway is the lovely rose-colored Trinatà dei Monti church.

Lungotevere (Castle Sant Angelo) : This massive castle was built by Emperor Hadrian as a tomb for himself and his family. Over the years it has served as a fortress, prison and barracks, and is now a vast museum.

Fontana di Trevi : the largest and most ambitious of the Baroque fountains of Rome. Legend says that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome.

Circus Maximus : the largest stadium in ancient Rome. It could seat 250,000 people, one quarter of Rome's population. The Circus was in use for around one thousand years, mainly for chariot races.

Imperial Forum: built by Julius Caesar and the first of several Imperial Forums in Rome. These Forums were a gathering place and a center for religion and politics.

At the end of your exciting bike tour of Rome you will be dropped back at the starting point at Via di Sant’Eufemia #15, near the Piazza Venezia.

The meeting point is at the Segway Office located in Via di Sant’Eufemia #15, Rome, it is very close to the Piazza Venezia. To find our office take as a reference the Vittoriano (big white monument located in piazza Venezia). Facing it, cross Via dei Fori Imperiali and walk in direction of the white column with spirals around and a statue on the top. Keep walking leaving the column on your right and the churches on your left. As soon as you overcome the second church, turn left into Via di Sant’Eufemia.
