Appian Way Vespa Rome Tour

4 h
About this activity
The Appian Way Vespa tour will start in front of the Colosseum. Start by getting adjusted to your Vespa by having a short ride to introduce you to how the scooter works. Then, head off toward the first and most important of all roads leading to Rome, the ancient Appian Way.

Ride the first 10-miles of the way, stopping by famous ancient Roman monuments, such as the Ancient Roman Tombs, early christian catacombs, the best preserved ancient Roman Circus (Maxentius), the great Roman aqueduct, mosaics from a first century Roman villa, famous churches like Domini Quo Vadis and St Sebastian outside the walls, ancient royal tombs and more.

Visiting the Appian way is a real treat as you will get a chance to go outside the city's center. You will be surprised to discover yourself immediately on a countryside with shepherds walking along with their sheep, plus a lot of greenery on your sides filled with monuments left from all periods of time.

During the tour your guide will ride a Vespa with you following on your scooter, enjoying a safe and beautiful ride. Stop from time to time when arriving at special sites, going down and exploring them. Your guide will make sure you get to see a lot of hidden gems and secret corners missed by most people when traveling along the way.

Highlights of the tour:


1. Colosseum

2. Circus Maximus

3. Porta St Sebastiano (Aurelian wall - Appian way entrance to Rome)

4. Church of Domini Quo Vadis (Christ foot-steps)

5. Church of St. Sebastiano outside the wall (pope's catacombs)

We absolutely loved our Rome Vespa tour with Victorio and Adolfo. Victorio was extremely passionate about teaching us the history of Rome and catering the tour to exactly what we wanted to see as well as taking great photos of us along the way. Adolfo was so fun and energetic as well having us pose for photos. We ended up having our own private tour and saw everything from the Vatican to the catacombs on the Appian way. That was a surprise we didn’t know we would be able to fit that tour in. At first we were ready and expecting to drive our own Vespa having gotten the international driving permits but with the traffic in the city that day I’m glad they urged us not to drive ourself. It seemed weird to have a personal driver at first but it was perfect because he was pointing out everything along the way and maneuvering around all the traffic, if we drove we wouldn’t be able to look at the sights because we would be focused on the traffic and just sitting in it loosing out on the tour time. The Vespa was the perfect way to explore everything in Rome on a time crunch by weaving around traffic. If we were in a car or bus there is no way we could have gotten to so many places in our 4 hour tour. We loved Rome and were sad to leave after our short stay. Victorio and Adolfo were very accommodating to getting us home fast through all of the traffic so we could catch our train! We will cherish these memories and remember our new Italian friends for when we come back!
