Your LivTours Vespa Tour of Rome is a semi-private tour that begins in the center of Rome where you will strap on your helmet and get a chance to test your Vespa before the tour begins. You and your group will be led across the Eternal City by a local guide, where you will be led to a less-trafficked area of the city, full of history and hills to explore both your driving skills and stunning panoramic views from above.

LivTours has taken the time to study the best route allowing you to discover the most of the Eternal City and its awe-inspiring panoramic views. You are sure to be the envy of your friends as you zip around the city, visiting more places in three hours than you could visit in an entire day on foot.

Feel like a local as you drive past the Colosseum, a route and ride you are sure to remember. LivTours prides itself on having a maximum of six people per tour group. Our semi-private tours allow you to communicate directly with your tour guide throughout the tour.

This tour allows you to truly experience Rome and maximize your time in the city. Your guide will stop from time to time so you can get in plenty of snapshots to remember your day of adventure driving around Rome on a Vespa! If there is time enough left from exploring, you and your group can choose to stop for gelato to make the day even more memorable.

All LivTours Semi-Private Group Tours are limited to 6 guests per tour guide. Our commitment to maintaining our uniquely tiny group sizes can sometimes be a little tricky, mathematically speaking. For example, we want to ensure that traveling families and friends can tour together so on rare occasions we may add one or two guests in order to not split groups. On that same note, you may also find yourself on tour with less than six people! We thank you for your understanding and flexibility.




Make your experience even more unique by upgrading your LivTours experience. Please note: add-ons are non refundable.

  • Super fun time seeing the city

    This was the greatest way to see the highlights of Rome! It's exciting to maneuver the streets and alleyways. We went fairly early in the morning on a Saturday so traffic wasn't an issue. Our guide Thomas was a kick and showed us not just the major points of interest but also some places not in the regular tour books. If you like scooters or motorbikes, this is the tour for you!!!

  • Just LOVED this experience!

    This was the most fun tour!! We absolutely LOVED seeing Rome on a scooter -- no less, the famous Vespa! Such an icon of Italy!! We went on a Saturday norming so there wasn't quite the madhouse traffic that there is on weekdays. Our guide was very attentive of us and made sure we understood the possible pitfalls (gotta be careful on those cobblestones!) so it was enjoyable and fun! We saw all of the main sites and our guide even gave us hints on other places to check out and good restaurants too. We were so happy that we booked this tour and highly recommend it to everyone!
