When one thinks of Rome, the first thing that comes to mind besides the ancient sites like the Roman Colosseum and Trevi Fountain are Vespa scooters. Everyone remembers Audrey Hepburn riding with Gregory Peck during Roman Holiday; and the tradition continues decades later. Visions of “Euro chic” women clad in designer fashions and fine Italian leather boots ride colourful Vespas through the roundabouts with not a hair out of place!

Well, we had a chance to live the fantasy of scooting around the ancient city on our own Vespas while taking part in the TBU Umbria, pre-trip with HouseTrip.

We all had huge grins on our faces as we sped through town. Our own little bike gang ruled the streets and when we pulled up to a traffic light we turned quite a few heads. We not only drove for a couple of hours, we also stopped at the usual show stoppers of Rome like the Colosseum, Vatican, Forum and Roman Baths.
