Full description
Enjoy a comprehensive half-day Segway tour, and see the best of Rome in an afternoon. Start with a short training session at the supplier’s office on Piazza Mattei near the Fontane delle Tartarughe (Turtles Fountain), built at the end of the Italian Renaissance.

Then, glide to archaeological sites, such as the Largo di Torre Argentina, home to 4 temples from the Roman Republic, and the remains of Pompey's Theatre. See the temple to all the gods at the Pantheon. Stop in the Baroque square of Piazza Navona to look at Bernini's Fountain of the 4 Rivers and its depictions of the Nile, Danube, Ganges, and Rio de la Plata.

Next, go to Hadrian’s Mausoleum at the Castel Sant’Angelo. Get a precious view of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican City. 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.

Throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, before going to Piazza Venezia to see the Trajan’s Column and the Altare della Patria monument to Victor Emmanuel II. Continue to Capitoline Hill for another breathtaking view of the “Eternal City.” Look at the ruins of the Roman Forum en route to the Colosseum.

Marvel at this glorious landmark of the Roman Republic, before going to the Circus Maximus where the chariot races of the Roman Empire were held. Stop to take photos of the city on Palatine Hill, before looking at the “Mouth of Truth” (Bocca della Verità), carved from Pavonazzo marble. Return to the start point via the old Jewish Quarter, one of the oldest Jewish settlements in Europe.
