1What is the best time to visit Rome by bicycle?

Rome is beautiful and amazing during the whole year but Rome by Bike is more than that.

Spring in Rome is wonderful! A kaleidoscope of colors, a continuous bloom of flowers, and the temperature is perfect to explore the wonders of the Eternal City by Bike. Daylight saving time, which begins every year between the night of the last Saturday and the last Sunday of March, will give you an hour more of daylight.

Summer in Rome is beautiful! Despite of the temperature, which often exceeds 30°C, Wheely can guarantee that you will forget the summer heat thanks to the wind in your hair during a bike ride and thanks to the characteristic "Nasoni", scattered everywhere in the Eternal City, where you can drink thirst-quenching water, and, the last but not the least, thanks to the best ice cream you will ever taste in your life.

Rome in Autumn is fantastic! The Roman “ottobrate” are known all over the world, the climate is mild, the trees are "orange Wheely", yellow and red colored, the sky is bright blue and the rainfall is usually scarce. Visiting Rome by Bike in autumn will make you feel so excited. Daylight saving time, which ends on the last weekend of October, still gives a bright light during the evening.

Rome is cozy in winter! The Roman winter is mild, the temperature rarely drops below freezing. It usually doesn’t rain too much and too long and the sun peeping through the clouds, even if timidly, warms enough during the day. Riding is still pleasant and stopping now and then to admire the monuments or warm up inside a tea room of the old town could be the ideal way to discover unexpected corners of Rome.

2Why should I visit Rome by bicycle?

Rome is too big to be visited on foot!

We found out that just to visit the city center you should have at your disposal at least 4 days and a lot of energy.

A motorvehicle does not allow you to enjoy and discover all the hidden corners of the city and also many roads in Rome are closed to traffic and therefore the only way to cross those areas is by foot or by bike.

That’s why Wheely thinks that the best way to discover the wonders of the Eternal City, in full freedom, is by using the two wheels.

With our Wheely Rome Bike Tours you will visit all the most important Tourist attractions of Rome, and then choose which of these sites you are interested in knowing better the next day.

If you are more comfortable choosing your Roman itinerary independently, you can rent a Wheely Bike. Wheely will provide you with a map of Rome indicating the main Tourist facilities and our staff will give you all the information you may need.

3Map of Rome?

Wheely provides you with all the information and curiosity that only Romans can know and spread, and we will give you all the information to get around Rome easily and safely by bike.

4Why choose Wheely?
