Super Buggy Tour

We call it the "super" buggy because, unlike the electric golf carts, its driving range is not limited by the duration of the batteries. Being operated by a small single cylinder diesel engine, when it runs out of juice, we can just re-fuel at the nearest gas station. Unfortunately it isn't as easy to get in and out of as the golf carts, but it's still easier than getting in and out of a car and it's a lot of fun! We use it for city tours, just like we use the golf carts, but we also use it to transfer people to the city if they are staying in hotels that are out of the golf carts' range and for wider range tours. This vehicle is a three-wheeler made by Piaggio, the same company that makes the "Vespa", the world's most famous scooter. The Vespa owes its name to the wasp, and our buggy is called "Ape" which means bee in Italian. They called the working version of the Vespa "Ape" (bee), inspired by the industrious insect. In fact it originally came out as a small pick-up truck, but then they came out with a passenger version called "calessino" which means buggy. So, if you decide to tour with us, besides the golf carts you can also choose to tour by "Ape". It's more noisy and smoky than the golf carts, but it's still a lot of fun and it can take you further than the golf carts can!

City Tours

Though the “super-buggy” is great for touring around Rome, we prefer to use it for excursions outside of the city like the Catacombs and Castelgandolfo. The golf cart is better for touring around the city because it’s smaller, silent and more comfortable than the “super-buggy” which, being operated by a diesel engine is also subject to limitations meaning it cannot drive everywhere like the electric golf carts can. However, just because it operates on a single cylinder diesel engine we can drive it further than the electric golf carts, the operating range of which is limited by the batteries’ life. So, enjoy Rome’s countryside from aboard the “super-buggy” and enjoy Rome from the seat of a golf cart!

The “super-buggy” accommodates 3 people plus driver. Larger groups will need to use more than one “super-buggy”.

Country Tours

Since the “super-buggy” has practically unlimited range, we can even take you out to the countryside in it! However we would not drive too far from the city on motorways, forget about driving to Tuscany in the “super-buggy”! But there are really nice places just outside of Rome we can take you to, for example: Castelgandolfo, the lovely little town overlooking a lake where the Pope has his summer residence. Only 25 kilometers (15 miles) away from Rome, but we will not cover the distance all in one drag, we’ll be making frequent stops. After picking you up at your hotel, we’ll drive past the Circus Maximus and the Baths of Caracalla and finally get on Rome’s oldest road: the Old Appian Way. We’ll make a stop along the Appian Way to let you tour the Catacombs and the continue Castelgandolfo. Here you’ll have the time to explore the lovely town and the panorama. On the way back to the city we’ll stop at the “Park of the Aqueducts”. This is a beautiful park just in the outskirts of Rome where you can stroll around the ruins of the famous Roman Aqueducts. Along the way we can stop for a quick, but authentic, lunch. This can happen either in a little place on the Old Appian Way or by the lake in Castelgandolfo. Ultimately, if you like, we can arrange for a picnic lunch! The whole tour takes 6 hours.

The “super-buggy” accommodates 3 people plus driver. Larger groups will need to use more than one “super-buggy”.

Super Buggy

The “Ape”. Old fashioned, typical Italian, this 3-wheeler derives from the world’s most famous scooter, the Vespa. “Vespa” means wasp and “Ape” means bee in Italian. The 3-wheeler version of the Vespa, designed to help men in their work, was named after the industrious insect, the bee.
