Rome Segway Tour: Villa Borghese

Villa Borghese fountains

After receiving a comprehensive overview of your Segway from your expert guide, you’ll be ready to conquer Rome's Villa Borghese park in style! As you glide the short distance from your meeting point to the park, pass the must-see Spanish Steps -- the famous 138-step staircase leading up from Piazza di Spagna.

Villa Borghese, opened in 1903, is the largest public park in Rome. The 148-acre (80-hectare) park features wide, shady lanes lined by temples, beautiful fountains, statues and museums -- perfect for cruising along on a Segway. Zoom down picturesque paths, away from car traffic, and weave between the lush trees and dazzling fountains.

Pass the Canonica Museum, named after Pietro Canonica, the Italian painter, opera composer, professor and sculptor. Your guide will tell you about his famous books, drawings and sculptures. Continue to the Temple of Diana and admire the goddess statue with one of her hunting dogs.

Continue further into the park to see the magnificent Piazza di Siena -- one of the park’s architectural and environmental jewels. From here, your guide will navigate you through the Lake Gardens, which was added by the English designer Jacob Moore after a major expansion and restoration project in the park.

Explore the newly renovated tree-lined walkways complete with new lawns and flowerbeds, a landscape of trees, shrubs and herbaceous borders. Admire the mirror of the lake’s water before reaching the Valadier House. Continue to the stunning Water Watch Fountain and make your way finally to Canonica Avenue, where your tour will end.

Our guide was amazing! He made sure we were all comfortable on the Segways before departing on our tour, then he led us through Villa Borghese, showing us all of the highlights and sharing some fabulous views of the city and it's history. So much fun! Giovanni was the perfect guide! Wish we had seen all of Rome on a Segway!

We had a great time. It ended up just being my Husband and myself so we had a private tour. Our guide was fabulous. Very knowledgeable and personable. He even took us to places we wanted to see that were not on the tour. I can't say enough good things about him. Thanks Giovanni. Every time I wear my Harley Davidson Rome tshirt I will think of you!! Highly recommend this tour.

Giovanni personally gave us this tour and he was an absolute delight.

If I could give this a 6, I would. These gardens are 143 acres! The tour is easier in your feet than walking, and covers the many highlights of the gardens. I would so do this again, and highly recommend it to anyone. Our guide was Marco and he did a great job!!

The tour was great!!! Super nice staff. I was the only one in my tour time so I had a private tour. Garden areas are beautiful and Segway is a great way to see all the property.

Uberto did a great job of making this a great tour. The segways are definitely the best way to view this park, it's so huge that by walking it all you'd be tired after a while! Fully recommend this tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Segways are the BEST way to tour large areas! My daughter and I had a great time touring Villa Borghese with Uberto, and recommend this tour highly...now wish we'd have had time for the Rome at Night tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Umberto, our guide, was knowledgeable and friendly. Touring Villa Borghese on segway allowed us to cover the whole green heart swiftly and attracted a lot of jealous stares from passer-bys! Highly recommended.
