What You Can Expect

Palermo Segway Tour

Admire Palermo Cathedral on your Segway shore excursion!

Meet your friendly guide near Via Emerico Amari in the center of Palermo, and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, you’ll weave through Palermo’s streets, following your guide at a steady pace.

Glide across to Piazza Verdi to see Teatro Massimo – Italy’s largest opera house – and swing past Capo Market where a mish-mash of busy alleyways are home to stalls selling some of Palermo’s best food. Maneuver past the crowds to Piazza della Vittoria and stop for pictures against the backdrop of the Palace of the Normans. The lavish gardens of Villa Bonanno are in the square, too, and you’ll see its lush palm trees and a few interesting Roman relics before leaving the square.

Continue to Piazza Bologni to see two ornate palaces – Villafranca and Belmote-Riso – as well as statues of King Charles V (or the King of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies, as he once precociously titled himself). Pass alongside Arab-Norman churches and see the Gallery of Modern Art – Palermo’s cultural hotspot that’s housed inside a former convent.

Stop for more photos outside Mirto Place and work your way past the green oasis that is Garibaldi Garden, next to Steri-Chiaramonte Palace. Then, head to the neighborhood of La Kalsa to glide around Piazza Kalsa. Pass through the Greek’s Gate, and then head out to Foro Italico – the city’s charming seafront. Stop to admire the sights at Villa a Mare and see some of Palermo’s top attractions gracing the vista: Butera Palace, Felice Gate and the Church of Santa Maria della Catena.

Glide past the ancient port of Palermo, into the neighborhood of Castellammare, and then continue along the waterfront of the modern harbor before finishing at the start point.
