SUPRome is an urban river paddling event in the city of Rome dedicated to Stand Up Paddlers within the TIBER TOUR (a paddling, cycling, walking event of 200 km starting from Umbria that in seven days reaches Rome and then the sea). It is not a race and you just compete with yourself with the amount of city beauty that you can capture. It is a paddling experience under historical and contemporary bridges, ranging from more than 2,300 years.
Usually, SUPRome is held on the 1st of May (the first edition took place in 2015).
Upon request SUP tours in the city of Rome can be organised all year round with a minimum number of participants required.
