Enjoy care-free cycling in Rome

Posted on 17th March 2012 by

Riding a bike in Rome is really rewarding. If you want to enjoy the sights in Rome but don’t want to be tired out by walking for miles, then you can take advantage of the great bicycle scheme in Rome. Just like in most cities these days, there are many places you can go to borrow a bike – including bicycle stations. Rome has introduced a bike-sharing scheme, just like in London and Paris. The scheme is maintained by the city’s government, and allows you to rent bicycles for one Euro and hour from the many bike stations scattered across the city.

Before you start riding bicycles, however, you will need to get yourself used to the city. It’s worth just trying to note how the traffic works, finding where it’s acceptable to ride your bike and what routes are best for different sights. Once you’ve done this, you can start renting your bikes and enjoy cycling around the city inexpensively.
