Vespa Tours

How it works

Our Vespa Tours of Rome are the quintessential way to explore the Eternal City. If you are qualified you can drive your own wheels. We require that you have recent experience driving a scooter or motorcycle. The Vespa model will be 125cc automatic with no gears, so it’s easier to handle on Roman roads. Don’t have scooter skills? Please contact us for options and availability.

Availability

When available, Giovanni & Annie will personally lead your Vespa Tour of Rome. If not, we will send you one of our experienced tour leaders from our team of Vespa drivers. Shoot us an email via our contact page and let us know which dates you are in town, where you are staying and how many people.

Foodie Vespa Tour

The advantage of a Vespa tour in Rome is being able to visit shops, bars and markets outside the city center in a short amount of time while your expert guide introduces you to the most delicious food the city has to offer. Depending on your itinerary, we will visit Panella one of the oldest bakeries in town, and Campo de Fiori square, the stomach of the city. Throughout the ride, we will share stories and history of Rome’s savory street food. We will sample espresso with zabaione cream, classic suppli & panini and get deeper into the belly of the Roman cuisine. You will choose between two exclusive food itineraries created by our in-house foodie Vespista: Taking it to the Streets, centered on the authentic food markets and traditional Roman street snacks or Chefs’ Menu, a collection of food from the rising star chefs in the city. Each will be personalized to your specific palate and culinary dreams. It is sure to be a delicious ride!

Street Art Vespa Tour

A recent boom of street art is changing the look and feel of the city and bringing curious visitors to unseen neighborhoods. Explore this modern form of artistic expression as we ride past a selection of murals and share with you the history of the neighborhoods and how they relate to Rome in the 21st century. Our first stop, Ostiense, is an authentic Roman quarter where contemporary artists and creatives are using the facades of old houses or abandoned buildings as a canvas for large colorful murals. Then we will journey even farther outside the city center to the often missed but must-see street art gems of the Quadraro Vecchio and Pigneto quarters. Street Art in this tour acts as a catalyst to share important socio-political messages and takes you places you never knew existed in this thriving ancient capital city.
