What You Can Expect
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.
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.
