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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Deffinatly worth a go, fun, fresh and informative. Uberto was knowledgable about not just the park itself but the intricate history of Rome and all it has to offer, patient when teaching the ways of the Segway and a lively participant in conversation. Without Urberto's help we wouldn't have been able to glean any information about the park (don't rely on the signs, there are few and far between in regards to directions or information). Don't be afraid of the Segway, it's much easier than it looks and great fun. Would highly recommend this fabulous experience!

Having never been on a Segway before (my husband included) i can say we were very nervous when we first got on for our lessons. Uberto was excellent at talking us through how to balance and we comfortable very quickly as he initially kept us on flat even surfaces (seeing the Borghese Villa to start with). After that, it was amazing. He showed us the map of the park and explained how we would travel to all corners to see what each part of the park had to offer- and away we went! We never could have seen the entire park on foot and the history Uberto gave us at each notable stop was interesting and entertaining. He never once rushed us, and offered to take pictures whenever we wanted. We were absolutely thrilled with the entire experience and will recommend this to our friends as well!
