Rome by Night: Pizza & Bike

Written By wheely

Have you ever wondered how the old town center and the whole city looks like after the sun has gone, while the temperature is cooling? It’s the perfect time when places are not busy and the night lights make the views of the city truly magical. The surging crowds and frenetic market activities, which dominate the daytime hours, are gone. Although less hurried, there is still plenty to see as we visit the Eternal city by night! Hop on a bike and come join us in a early evening ride, let the good wind blow through your hair and breathe in that special, quiet charm that Rome gains in the dark! You will discover Rome in a different light within the relative tranquility of the cool evening air. On this relaxing bike ride you will be amazed about the history and stories that the Caput Mundi has to offer. Admire and explore the magical hidden places of The Eternal City. On this leisurely ride you’ll pedal down the river bank to make sure that you catch a glimpse of Rome reflecting against the stillness of the Tiber. You’ll move around like true Romans, leaving from the Colosseum, passing through the Imperial Fora, reaching the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. You’ll cross the Tiber on Sant’Angelo bridge, to see the Castle, St Peter’s Dome and the Vatican City when it’s most enchanting: after dark. Of course you’ll also see where Romans go out to have a good time in the cooler evening air, like Navona Square, and you’ll soak up the atmosphere. Don’t worry, instead of overloading you with mind-numbing dates, we prefer sharing all the basic info, fun facts and insider stories with you.
