Some dream of spending the day wandering the Colosseum, while others imagine paying homage to Saint Peter’s Basilica, but one thing is certain: millions yearn to explore the ins and outs of Rome.
If you’re one of those millions and you’re planning a trip to Italy’s famed capital, I’ve got a recommendation for putting an adventurous spin on the typical sight-seeing trip: see it on a scooter!
In April of 2012, I had the opportunity to visit Rome, and happened upon a flyer for a local scooter rental shop with some friends. After deciding that nothing sounded more amazing than scooting through the city streets, we headed over to Bici & Baci to sign up for a guided tour. The next four hours of my life were some of the most amazing I’ve had, and would say this is a must for anyone who wants to explore the city, learn from a local, and do it all with style (and maybe some speed)!
We saw well-known things, like the Colosseum, and lesser-known but equally awesome things, like the keyhole on Aventine Hill, and even stopped for a quick bite and some Italian espresso. How can you beat that?
So if you’re up for a little adventure in Rome, definitely give scooting—specifically through Bici & Baci who have reasonable pricing, great guides and seriously fun scooters—a try!
