Full description
Rome is a true ‘outdoor museum’ making the Segway the perfect vehicle from which to experience it. The historic center of the Eternal City is a treasure trove of stunning monuments, bustling piazzas and fountain masterpieces, all of which you can discover on this half-day Rome Segway tour.

Your experience begins a 5-minute walk from the Colosseum. From here your expert tour guide will start with a 30-minute Segway training session. Within minutes you’ll be gliding around; the Segways are easy to use.

Once you have your bearings, roll through Rome’s medieval streets discovering its most famous architectural and artistic wonders. To reach the heart of the historic center, ride along the famous Imperial Forum to the Campidoglio square, designed by the master Michelangelo himself. From here head towards Campo de’ Fiori, known for its daily street market and nightlife. The famous Piazza Navona is a short glide away. Here, experience Bernini’s incredible Fountain of the Four Rivers, which has recently been restored to it’s full glory. Navona Square is home to talented street performers and is always filled with a lively crowd.

A sure highlight of the day is a visit to the impressive Pantheon, one of Rome’s best preserved ancient temples, now a consecrated basilica boasting a stunning 142 foot freestanding dome. Stop in Sant’Ignazio, one of Rome’s most impressive and lesser-known churches. The last two stops need no introduction: toss a coin and make a wish to return to Rome at the one and only Trevi Fountain before culminating at the foot of the Spanish Steps.

At each of Rome’s famous sights, enjoy a presentation on a personal iPod, which will be provided at the beginning of the tour. Discover fascinating facts and curiosities about each of the spots you’ll visit in a modern and entertaining audio-visual presentation created uniquely for this tour. 

If you want to visit all of the famous sights that Rome is known for and cover more ground with less effort, this Segway tour is for you. All tours depart from and end at the local supplier's office (near the Colosseum), where a bathroom, free Wifi, and water are available for all guests.

The Best of Rome Segway tour was a lot of fun, and we really enjoyed seeing the city. However, we docked a star due to the extremely unpleasant odour that came from the helmets provided. It would appear that they do not spray them, nor provide helmet caps for their clients. Be sure to sniff them before putting them on your head! I would’ve also enjoyed further detail on the sites, as we felt the descriptions and explanations were rather bare bone. Otherwise, it was a fun experience and fantastic way to see the great city of Rome.

Brilliant but not for everyone

Great tour but can be dangerous for novices. The guide was great but only one guide for 5 of us is not safe. Needed one at the front & one following at the rear. Other guide went with another couple who could understand English. Couldn't understand why they didn't come along with us. Great fun & informative but can be quite dangerous if your not used to a Segway. 2 of us fell off, me included. Make sure you have insurance cover.
