Florence Segway Tour

Enjoy your tour in a Segway around Florence!

While you ride your two-wheeled electric Segway, which operates by self-balancing, you'll listen to your audio guide via a set of headphones and hear entertaining facts and anecdotes about the history of Florence as you glide. You could almost consider this a private tour, since groups are limited to a minimum of two and a maximum of six, plus tour leader. You'll have fantastic photo opportunities and excellent personal service from your professional guide.

Your tour starts with a 30-minutes orientation session. Once you feel comfortable riding the Segway, your journey begins to the historic center of town. Here you will have the opportunity to visit (exterior only) all the important areas of Florence while listening to your audio-guide comfortably through your headpiece set.

Tour Highlights include:
Palazzo Strozzi
Orsanmichele Church (external visit)

This was the best thing we did in Florence! I had never been on a Segway before but it is really easy to use. You just feel like you are gliding round the streets. Our guide was very impressive and really gave you an insight into the area and its history. Highly recommend this. Book early though ...all the way round people were asking our guide if they could book but the were fully booked for the following two days.
