Select a morning or afternoon tour on booking. Travel independently to the meeting and starting point in central Rome.

Put on your provided helmet and cycle to the west entrance of the Villa Borghese. Home to leafy avenues, grand buildings, and Roman ruins, as well as a lake and zoological garden, the Villa Borghese was originally a vineyard and the private garden of Cardinal Scipione Borghese, before becoming a public park in 1903.

From the entrance, set out on your bike tour around the park’s attractions and beauty spots. Admire the famous Fountain of the Sea Horses and trace the pine-fringed pathways to the Borghese Gallery, home to one of Europe’s largest art collections. Learn how Cardinal Scipione Borghese used his immense wealth to assemble much of this exceptional collection, including paintings and sculptures by such artists as Caravaggio, Bernini, Titian, Rubens, and Raphael. If you wish, purchase tickets in advance when you book so you can visit the gallery after your bike tour.

Cruise around other landmarks, and stop for a complimentary coffee. Visit Pincian Hill to absorb the sweeping views over Rome, circle the boating lake and pass the Bio Park, the zoological garden first opened in 1908, and home to 222 different species. Purchase tickets when you book if you want to visit the zoo after your cycle tour.

I called the tour...

, Jul 2022
I called the tour operator about 10 minutes before the scheduled departure and told him that we might be late because we were having a problem getting a taxi. The operator rudely told me that he would not wait beyond 10:00 (the scheduled departure time). We have taken 3 Viator tour on this trip and without exception they have all started 10 to 25 minutes after the scheduled departure time. How do you think that I will comment about this tour? I reserved and paid for this tour for 4 people. I feel that Viator should refund what I paid for this tour and counsel the tor operator on customer service. I do expect a reply to this comment.

My wife and I ended up getting a private tour with Stefano and Anna. They were so knowledgeable about roman history. The tour of Villa Borghese was awesome because its a part of Rome that I imagine most visitors do not see. Riding through the park and streets of Rome was truly a unique experience. Highly recommend
