What You Can Expect

Rome Segway Tour

See Ancient Rome by Segway!

Your Rome Segway tour starts near Piazza Venezia, where you’ll meet your guide and get comfortable on your 2-wheeled, self-balancing Segway during a brief practice session. When you’re ready, take off with your guide through Rome’s historical center. Allowing you to cover more ground than a walking tour while still being outside in the fresh air, a Segway tour is the ideal way to experience a city filled with so many must-see attractions.

Head toward Capitoline Hill to visit the archaeological ruins of the Roman Forum, home to landmarks like the Arch of Constantine and Trajan’s Column. Listen to a bit of history about Ancient Rome from your audio commentary as you glide around the edge of the forum, and then pass by Palentine Hill on your way to Circus Maximus, where chariot races were once held.

Continue to the Colosseum for a photo op of this legendary amphitheatre where gruesome gladiator battles once took place, which you’ll hear about via your audio guide. Then weave your way over to the Church of Santa Maria to check out Bocca della Verità, the Mouth of Truth, a carved piece of marble made famous in the Audrey Hepburn movie Roman Holiday. Legend says, if you put your mouth into the sculpture and tell a lie, your hand will be bitten off.

End your tour by making your way back to the starting point, stopping for a photo op at a scenic vantage point along the way.

Its a fun and informative way of seeing some of the attractions minus the walking. Its so much fun and I loved the way our tour guide Martina made the group feel involved and made us laugh!
I would definitely recommend, you will not be disappointed. When we visit Rome again we are going to book the night time tour. Well worth the money and also was one of the high lights of our weekend.

This is the best tour to start with Rome. Though I and #39;d like to share one small problem with VIATOR, is the location of the shop is not clear enough and #34;Departure Point: Central Rome, near Piazza Venezia and #34; this is not enough to locate the shop. I suggest mark in map, share coordinates, or exact address.

Cover twice the distance in 1/2 the time with a wonderful guide in your ear explaining the history and the theory of building and construction in Rome. Took five minutes for a first timer to learn. We will be doing segway tours every chance we get.

Best thing we did in Rome. The tour guide was terrific and the route was superb. I'd never been to Aventino Hill and that was the highlight. The views are spectacular.

This tour was amazing. Renato was a fantastic tour guide, and we saw so many of Rome's highlights. The segways were easy to use and the view....amazing! Would definitely recommend this tour if you haven't got long in Rome!

We arranged our Segway tour months in advance for the first full day we were in Rome so we could get an overview of the location of the sites for visiting later during our stay. It was a good plan, except we over slept and were actually wakened by a call from Viator wanting to know if we were going to make the tour. Of course it was too late. We asked if we could re-book and were told that no promises, but they would try. We figured this was going to be a total bust because of our screw up and basically wrote it off as a costly mistake. However, we received another call the following day and were able to re-book the tour. It was so worth it! Our guide Alexandra, could not have been better, she was helpful and informative. The Segway took only about ten minutes to master and we felt confident weaving in and out of the crowd and crossing traffic. Alexandra kept a watchful eye on all of us and did not let anyone get into trouble. We saw more in the 3 hours than we could have ever hoped for by walking. Thank You Viator for running a professional business and continually following-up with us. And Thank You Alexandra for a fun and informative tour along with some fantastic lunch suggestions. Definitely would recommend this tour and company!
