What You Can Expect

Florence Night Segway Tour

Piazza del Duomo at night

Undeniably gorgeous by day, Florence is somehow even more so by night, when the city seems to positively glow from lights flickering on its Renaissance buildings. Handily, your Florence Night Segway Tour takes place at this ideal time, ensuring you’ll capture the magic of top Florence sights at night, minus the daytime crowds and the soaring midday heat.

In the early evening, meet your friendly guide and start with a 30-minute orientation to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, you’ll weave through Florence’s charming narrow streets, following your guide into the historical center.

Glide from Piazza della Repubblica, a bustling city square, to the beautiful Basilica of Santa Croce with its distinctive green and white marble façade. After stopping for photos and to listen to audio commentary about this historic area, set off again drawing cheerful glances from stylish Florentines on their evening strolls.

Piazza della Signoria is the next stopping point, and you’ll quickly discover why so many consider this as the beating heart of Florence. Framed by more majestic monuments, statues and picturesque buildings than you could ever hope to see, the square’s true showstoppers include the copy of Michelangelo’s famous David sculpture and the grand town hall – Palazzo Vecchio.

Continue out of the square to see Strozzi Palace, a glittering showcase of Renaissance architecture, and gaze in awe at Florence Duomo, with its distinctive orange dome dominating Florence’s nighttime cityscape.

Before your Segway tour finishes, follow your guide to one of Florence’s most prestigious gelaterias for an artisan gelato and a well-deserved sit down. Your tour finishes nearby, and after returning your Segway, your guide will point you in the best direction to get back to your hotel.

Take note--there are imitators in Florence. This is the segway tour to take. Professional guide with a first rate tour. Allow a little it of extra time to locate the meeting place. It's not obvious but not impossible to find. Easy to operate and fun for all. The group size is perfect. Do this tour early in your Florence visit--the added bonus is that it giets you oriented for the rest of your stay. Built in breaks. Wear comfortable clothes. Do bring water.

We LOVED this tour! I wish I could remember the name of our tour guide. We loved her accent! Her knowledge of the history of Florence was staggering! Cruising around Florence in the evening on our Segways was so relaxing and refreshing, as it was much cooler out. I highly recommend this company!

Bernadette was a great tour guide. We had a blast and the segway was truly easy to adapt to. We did it the first night we got to Florence and what a wonderful way to see the city. Ended with a delicious gelato, yummy! Highly recommend!

A brilliant tour with Valentina. Went to almost all the main sights in the city and the bonus was a gelato stop! Good value and excellent tour guide.

We got to Florence in the afternoon so it was too late to go on any scheduled tours. So I booked this Segway tour which starts right before sun down. It is such a fun experience. We were a small group of four and our guide took us everywhere in the city in 2.5 hours. She was excellent. Learning how to use the Segway was a breeze. You don't get to go into any of the sites in the tour but you definitely get a feel for what you want to come back and visit during the day. And you do it while it is cool at night. The tour ends at a excellent Gelato store where they treat you to a small two flavored cup of Gelato.

The location of the start is easy to find. Bennie did a fantastic job. Best 2+ hours ever on a Segway. Tour hit all the highlights and was beyond informative with some local tidbits thrown in.

We are a family of 4 (with two teenagers 16 and 13). We had sooo much fun on this tour. Seeing Florence at night was really spectacular. Our guide was also incredibly friendly and informative. I think Florence is a great city to do this tour by Segway as a large part of the city center is pedestrian only. Also at night we found the crowds to be less so it was much easier to zip around all the sites. It also helped break up all the museums we were going to. The Segway is easy to use and pretty intuitive so if you have any concerns that you won't be able to manage it, don't be. It was great fun and a great way to get a tour of Florence.
