Foodies on Vespas

A privately guided Vespa tour that covers city highlights and off-the-beaten-path areas that would otherwise take 4 days to visit. 

Tours start at your residence and have you riding safely as passengers on the back of experienced Vespa drivers.

Your personal food expert guide also rides on a Vespa or a scooter, and leads you on a carefully developed itinerary, riding past monuments, panoramic view points and stopping for delicious food tastings along the way, at places that are not normally part of a walking food tour. 

Foodies on Vespas are guided by local food experts who focus on showcasing only small, family-run food artisans, and who love creating friendly connections between travelers and locals.

On our chauffeured scooter safari, with an open-air view of the Eternal City, food lovers visit both traditional and modern foodie hotspots, acquiring insight into Rome’s alimentary habits as well as its evolving food culture.

    We enjoyed a wonderful tour of Rome. We visited a neighborhood food market and several local food merchants, including a bakery, a pizza place, and a cheese store. Our guide was very knowledgeable about food, history, and traditions. Highly recommended!
