Full description

Explore Rome on a guided Segway tour to sights like Piazza di Pietra. Glide through Villa Borghese and climb up Pincian Hill without breaking a sweat. Cruise through the Campo Marzio district with ease. 

Learn how to operate a Segway upon meeting your guide on Piazza del Popolo, and then head towards the grounds of the magnificent Villa Borghese once everyone is confident on this easy-to-ride, self-balancing vehicle.

Discover the ancient monuments of the third largest park in Rome, including the legendary Borghese Gallery, home to a treasure trove of art by the most famous painters from Italy. 

Continue to the lake before riding over to Piazza di Siena. Make your way up the Pincio (Pincian Hill) to get breathtaking view over the city. Head back down into the bustling city center and visit some of the main squares and alleyways of the Campo Marzio district. 

Admire the impressive Pantheon and get a closer look at the colonnades of the Temple of Hadrian in Piazza di Pietra. See Bernini's glorious Fontana della Barcaccia (Fountain of the Boat) in Piazza di Spagna at the foot of the Spanish Steps.

The whole experience was great from beginning to end. Our guide ensured we were all happy with our segways before we headed off. The Borghese Gardens were wonderful to ride along - relaxing, shaded a lot and surfaces good. Our guide gave us lots and lots of history along the way and took photographs for us. We went to some sites in Rome too eg Spanish steps and Panthenon. Great way to see the sites.

Our host (not sure his name :/ ) was amazing! The segways themselves are a lot of fun to ride and pretty easy to get good at, and definitely make a difference when you’re in the heat all day. Overall a great experience and I would 100% do it again!

Would definitely recommend this tour for a fun and unique experience! You definitely need a bit of a sense of balance as the segways respond to how you lean (forward or backward). My friend and I took a few minutes to figure everything out, but then it was such a fun experience to ride around the city! The guide let us stop for all the great photo opps and told us a bit about certain landmarks, which added a depth to our sightseeing.
