Six Alternative Sightseeing Tours of Rome

Witness a different side to the Eternal City by exploring its sights and splendours, both on the ground and in the air. From wheeling through its picturesque streets on a Vespa to soaring over its iconic sites in a helicopter, here are six of the best alternatives to sightseeing on foot in Rome.

By Vespa

Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn à la Roman Holiday and hop on a Vespa to explore the Eternal City. Scooteroma tailors each tour to your tastes, based around themes of food, classic sights, cinema, street art and Rome at twilight. Whizz past traffic on your way to the farmers’ market in Testaccio, the colourful murals in Ostiense, the ancient Colosseum and the ruins of the Terme di Caracalla. For those who’d prefer a steadier vehicle with more than two wheels, Scooteroma also offers tours in its vintage three-wheeled Piaggio Ape Calessino.

By Fiat 500

With yet more wheels, the Fiat 500 tours offered by the Rome 500 Experience are not to be missed. A classic vintage vehicle, the miniature Fiat 500 is uniquely suited to zipping through Rome’s narrow cobblestoned streets in search of the best sights. With self-drive and chauffeured options, take the tour however you see fit. There are plenty of themes to choose from, including a private tour, which ends with an Italian wine tasting.

By Segway

Rome is a city with millennia of history stacked within its walls, which makes exploring it on a Segway that much more thrilling. Glide past relics of antiquity, including the ancient Roman Forum, Circus Maximus and Capitoline Square, on your state-of-the-art personal transportation vehicle. Take a slightly more unconventional tour with Segway Rome Tours. The Lovely Tour showcases some of the city’s most romantic sights, from the Trevi Fountain to the beautiful gardens of Villa Borghese.

By Bicycle

Exploring the city by bike is both eco-friendly and informative, not to mention fun. The Artisan Food & Crafts of Rome tour shows you around the boutiques and charismatic streets of Rione Monti, Trastevere, and the old Jewish Ghetto, while the Panoramic Views tour provides exactly that. For something a little different, head out of the city and follow in the footsteps of ancient armies on a three-hour bike tour of the Appian Way.

By Ferrari

A luxurious way to see Rome, Italy Luxury Car Hire offers the opportunity to drive around Rome and out into the countryside in your very own Ferrari. With a private transfer from Hotel de la Ville to the Terme di Caracalla, where the tour starts, you’ll drive through the city and out beyond the city limits, stopping at Lake Nemi on the way out and Lake Albano on the way back, with a sumptuous lunch on Pagnanelli’s rooftop terrace in between.

By Helicopter

Take to the skies in a helicopter for a bird’s-eye view of Rome and see more of the Eternal City in an hour than you could in a whole day of sightseeing on foot. Take a tour enjoying views of the surrounding countryside, with its villages, lakes, and fields studded with pine and cypress trees.
