Full description
Enjoy a comprehensive half-day tour by Segway and see the top historic landmarks and monuments in Rome. Start with a short training session at Piazza Mattei near the Fontane delle Tartarughe (Turtles Fountain), built at the end of the Italian Renaissance.

As this is a private tour, your guide can tailor the route according to your interests, skipping what you have already seen and adding other sites.

From Piazza Mattei, you’ll ride your Segway to several archaeological sites, including the Largo di Torre Argentina and the remains of Pompey's Theater. See the temple to the gods at the Pantheon. Stop at the Baroque square of Piazza Navona to admire Bernini's Fountain of the 4 Rivers and its depictions of the Nile, Danube, Ganges, and Rio de la Plata.

Next, you’ll ride to Hadrian’s Mausoleum at the Castel Sant’Angelo. Zip over to the Ara Pacis altar to the Roman goddess of peace. Continue through beautiful Piazza del Popolo to Piazza di Spagna and the Spanish Steps.

Toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain before heading to Piazza Venezia to see Trajan’s Column and the Altare della Patria monument to Victor Emmanuel II.

Continue on to the Capitoline Hill for another breathtaking view of the Eternal City, and then glide to the Circus Maximus where the chariot races of the Roman Empire were held.

Stop to take photos of the city from the Palatine Hill, before riding to the Mouth of Truth (Bocca della Verità), carved from Pavonazzo marble.

You’ll return to the starting point via the old Jewish Quarter, one of the oldest Jewish settlements in Europe.

Visite sympathique de ROME avec un autre point de vue

Accueil et formation efficaces au segway qui finit par être un mode de déplacement très naturel! Alliant mobilité et hauteur, grâce à notre guide Mattia, nous avons parcouru la majorité des sites historiques de ROME en quelques heures seulement . En plus en segway on peut s'arrêter pour voir des sites où des points d'intérêt non visibles de l'extérieur comme les Caravagio dans l'église française. Des points de vue particulier de ROME deviennent également accessibles. Nous avons donc été conquis et recommandons cette approche personnalisée et en français de ROME

Ein perfekter Start für unseren Rom-Urlaub!

Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen. Der Treffpunkt am Schildkrötenbrunnen ist eine super Ausgangslage zum Erkunden der Stadt. Nach einer Einweisung und hilfreichen Tipps hat uns Mattias sicher und kompetent durch die Stadt geleitet. Wir konnten unsere Wünsche für die Tourgestaltung einbringen und Mattias hat viele Erklärungen und uns genügend Zeit gegeben, die einzelen Sehenswürdigkeiten anzuschauen, sodass die Tour für uns ganz relax abgelaufen ist. Auch eine Pause in einem netten Straßencafé hat die Tour abgerundet. Ein grosses Dankeschön an Turtle Tour Rome. Wir können die Tour und Turtle Tour Rome nur weiterempfehlen.
