What you'll do

Join me and my friends Vittorio, Massimiliano and Sergio for a unique experience where you will see the most and the best of Rome. We'll ride through the Eternal City exploring typical districts, famous attractions but also seeking for hidden treasures (that visitors never get the chance to see).

On a fun panoramic ride on the back of our Vespas, you will see the main highlights of Rome without losing time waiting or relying on public transport. On our way around the city we will also stop at one of the best places for Gelato & Roman street food.

If you like thinking outside the box, this is your tour. It’s the only way to have an immersive experience into the Eternal City.

For this journey, we will be using the vintage Vespas of Vittorio, Massimiliano and Sergio, just like Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holidays, to enjoy la dolce vita and really get the feeling of what Rome is like. I'll arrange the perfect itinerary for you.

I'm an entrepreneur and globetrotter: I've lived in Thailand, in California and I co-founded the first ride-sharing app in Europe for mopeds, named Scooterino.

I'm a fanatic of vintage Vespas, which in my opinion are one of the most iconic Italian design product of all time. 3 years ago I started to create something unforgettable for those who like to have a feeling of dolce vita, with the help of 3 fanatics of the ‘50s who are great friends of mine: Vittorio, Massimiliano and Alex. They will help me give you the most exciting experience of your Roman holiday. We call it: VESPA EXPERIENCE

Where you'll be

Imagine riding by the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Temple of Venus and much much more. Take a quick stroll by Castel Sant’Angelo, Rome's epic castle where the pope would hide out when Rome was under attack! Scoot by Altare della Patria: its nickname is the "Wedding Cake." Besides making stops at the most important Roman monuments, you will get a chance to take photos since we know the best spots to stop and catch the incredible scenery of Rome.

This tour is a great way to see Rome’s most beautiful and significant spots in a short time, while having a lot of fun! You get to not only pass by the monuments, but actually stop by them, learn about their history, and take pictures. My host was wonderful - engaging, knowledgeable, and a very safe driver. I would recommend the tour to everyone! Especially the fans of the Roman Holiday :)

A must-do experience in Rome. I did this on my first day and I’m so glad I did! It was the perfect way to learn the city and see it from unexpected angles. The tour was personalized to me and my interests - I wanted to see some of the sights but wanted more of a non touristy experience, and that’s exactly what I got. All along the way, my guide regaled me with facts and stories about the city, and also took great photos of me in many of the spots that I will cherish forever. I couldn’t recommend this experience enough - I want to do it again!

If you are considering this Vespa tour do not hesitate! One of the highlights of our trip to Rome. What an incredible way to the see the city. We were only in Rome for three nights and this tour covered so many tourist spots we didn’t have the time to see on foot. Our drivers were so knowledgeable of Rome’s history and also hilarious. Miss Rome everyday now. What a beautiful city!! Thank you guys for the amazing tour.

Loved it! Francesco was so patient with all of us novice cooks while teaching something he is obviously a master of. And in the end was delicious! Learned a skill I thought was out of reach pretty easily with his expert instruction. I would recommend this experience to anyone going to Rome, and would go back again!

Loved this really unique experience! I did the morning tour after I arrived in Rome. It was an absolutely perfect way to get an overview of the city and a little history lesson and explanation while you drive. You do so much walking in Rome to get from site to site for the tourist attractions, that it is also nice to do something less tiring for the rest of your day plans! I had an awesome driver and I never felt unsafe riding on the back of the Vespa. We saw some cool places that I wouldn't have had the chance to see in my 4 days in Rome. Highly recommend this!
