Marco and Francesca picked us up at our hotel for our tour but it was raining so we all decided to "change plans" and Marco suggested a "City Tour" of Rome instead. This was the best tour we have taken in a long time. Hubby and I not only felt very safe with our tour guides driving but we literally went EVERYWHERE. Marco was extremely knowledgeable about everything we saw. He took his time explaining each focal point and made it come alive. He let us stop anywhere we wanted to spend a little more time, we never felt rushed. We were so happy we were not able to do the traditional Appian way tour we signed up for (although we did some of it and it was great). I cannot recommend this tour company enough and especially our guides. They were truly OUTSTANDING.

THE most exciting way to see Rome. Professional drivers ensured fun and safety. Learned a great deal about Rome’s history not covered on other tours.

Good service and veeery friendly owner Adolfo:) Vespa was a new, simple rent-agreement, and mindful manager. I recommend this rental center 👍

My husband and I took the Appian Way Vespa tour in early October. Mario our guide was awesome! He provided very informative historical commentary at each stop along the tour. Vespa rentals from Centro Moto Colosseo were of high quality. Great time!

This was THE MOST amazing tour! It was my husband and I with Victorio, our Vespa tour guide. Victorio was so much fun and so knowledgeable. We saw so many parts of the city, and outside of the city gates, that many will never experience. Taking a Vespa tour of Rome is the best way to see everything while having a blast. Don't miss this!

We cannot say enough good about this tour! Alex and Adolfo were kind and accommodating. The tour was wonderful and we really appreciated the places we were taken to-- some well-known as well as some hidden gems. Riding a vespa through Rome is So Fun!!! And definitely a great way to experience the city.

The one and only place I recommend if you want to rent a beautiful Vespa in Rome! Adolfo was incredibly nice and we had the best time driving around the city! Make sure you have your driving license and motorcycle experience before coming here!

My sister and I took the vespa tour with Alexander and team. We had the BEST time. I am so happy we did it and there is no other way to see Rome than this. You will not be disappointed. It was the highlight of our trip! We will be back..:)

We chose to do this tour last Friday on our last day in Rome and what a way to top off our vacation! From the minute we walked in the door, Adolfo, the owner had a big smile and a warm greeting. We met out guide Alexander at the same time and both men were very helpful getting us set up on our bright red "scooter". Adolfo kindly offered us water and after a short briefing, we were on our way. Their main concern was safety so we started slow and I started by riding on the Vespa of our guide while my friend got used to the controls on his. After inquiring what we were interested in seeing, Alexander took us to some unique and interesting historical sites. He was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about these places we would not have visited on our own. We even stopped at a "cave" like bistro in Testaccio for a cool soda, it was a VERY hot humid day. We capped the tour with a cruise through the narrow streets of Testevere, my friend was a very skilled rider and really enjoyed the experience. I closed my eyes, laughing all the way. We saw great views and ended our journey with a "money shot". Alexander saw the opportunity to pull over by the Colosseum and took a fantastic photo of my friend and I on our scooter with the Colosseo as our backdrop. What a day! I would highly recommend taking a tour from them and look forward to doing so again some year when I return.

<p>Adolfo and our guide Alexander were very accomodating and welcoming. Alexander personalised the tour a bit more for us and took us to places we would otherwise not have gone on foot and/or on tour and provided some great history about the places. We were still limited for time, but he tried to allow us opportunity for photos too. Being on a vespa was excellent, tick.</p>
