This Subterranean Shrine Below a Bike Rental Store Celebrates an Iconic Italian Scooter

“All roads lead to Rome,” as the saying goes. And when you arrive there, you’ll most likely find the city’s roads filled with two things: traffic jams and Vespa scooters weaving in and out of the gridlock.

A beloved icon of la dolce vita and modern Italian culture, the stylish scooters are celebrated in a small permanent exhibition located beneath a bike hire store near the Imperial Forum. Visitors who venture into the basement of the Bici & Baci shop will find a Vespa shrine with vintage models from across the decades.
