    What to Expect
    Meet at the departure point in central Rome to pick up your scooters and begin the tour.

    The first stop will be at the monumental Colosseum (outside visit), the symbol of the ancient Roman world and one of the most visited attractions of the world. Then, continue toward Circus Maximus, where chariot races were once held, to see the tracks where 180,000 passionate spectators could fervently cheer on their favorite heroes.

    On the way to the Catacombs, you'll have the opportunity to admire the great ruins of the Baths of Caracalla. Cruise along the ancient Appian Way, between the ruins of numerous Roman tombs. Once you reach the Catacombs, you'll visit some of the 150 kilometers of underground tunnels and galleries used as cemeteries by Roman-era Christians. After the tour of the Catacombs, head toward Aventino Hill with the view of the sprawling Emperors Palace on Palatine Hill. Passing the Theatre of Marcellus, the tour will go though the most central square of Rome, the Piazza Venezia, where you can admire the Monument of King Victor Emanuel II, who is credited with the unification of Italy.

    Take a lunch break (own expense) next to the spot of Julius Caesar’s assassination on the Ides of March, 44 B.C., now a refuge to thousands of street-cats.

    After the lunch break, continue on toward Piazza della Rotonda, where you can admire an architectural wonder and one of the best preserved monuments of the ancient Roman world, the Pantheon. Driving through the little cobblestoned streets, you will reach Piazza Navona, a square built on the site of the ancient stadium of Domitian. Afterward, will ride to the Quirinal Palace, official residence of the Italian President, originally built by Popes in the 1580s as their splendid summer residence.

    Descend to the cascading waters of the Trevi Fountain, the grandest of Rome’s Baroque fountains, still fed by an ancient 19 B.C. Roman aqueduct. Toss a coin into its gushing sprays to ensure a return visit to the Eternal City.

    Continue with the scooters to see the Castle of the Holy Angel, or 'Castel Sant’Angelo,' on the Tiber River, originally commissioned by Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself. The building was later used by the popes as a fortress. From here you can see one of the largest churches of the world, St. Peter’s Basilica, one of the most prominent works of Renaissance-era geniuses Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno, and Gianlorenzo Bernini. The last stop will be the Janiculum Hill, with its spectacular view overlooking the city.

    Afterward, drive the scooters back for the final check at the end of your tour of Rome.
