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.

Matteo the leader was very considerate and safety conscious - very valuable with the crazy motorbikes and cars on Rome's roads!
The route was interesting - taking in some of the big stuff, like the Colosseum and Circus Maximum, but also some off-the-beaten track gems like the House of the Knights of Malta.
Highly recommended - travelling by Segway is easy for anyone after perhaps 5mins of practice and much more relaxing than walking everywhere.

Matt our guide was amazing. Fun, safe and shared the history of his city in a way that was great for both adults and teens. Great way to get an overview of Rome. We did the tour on our first full day and felt like we got both history as well insights on how best to navigate the ancient part of the city.

I was skeptical about taking this tour but oh boy did they win me over! Everything about the tour was organized and fun. Our tour guide, Matt, was phenomenal and endlessly energetic and cheerful as he took a group of 8 in total all over the city. I would've never believed that we could negotiate all that traffic and all of those people so well. Also, we covered a lot of ground. You will never be able to do as much on your own or as thoroughly. Highly recommend.
