Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.
