What You Can Expect

Rome Segway Tour

See Ancient Rome by Segway!

Meet your friendly guide and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, you’ll follow your guide into the downtown streets of Rome.

Glide toward the area known as Capitoline Hill, and as you approach it you’ll be met with the jaw-dropping sights of Ancient Rome. Once the home of richly elaborate temples, shops, markets and government buildings, the area is now a fascinating archeological site peppered with 2,000-year-old world-famous ruins.

Head right up to it and weave around the outskirts of the Roman Forum, seeing grandiose monuments like the Arch of Constantine and Trajan’s Column. Hear the history of the site in its heyday from your audio commentary, learning about its status as the administrative center of Rome.

Pass Palentine Hill and stop for a look at Circus Maximus, the vast stretch of flat land where chariot races were once held to entertain up to 250,000 locals. Continue to the Colosseum, Rome’s iconic monument on the east side of Ancient Rome, and stop for photos while listening to commentary about the gory, yet glorified, gladiator battles that once took place inside.

After weaving through the crowds outside the ruins, take back to the streets and head to the Church of Santa Maria to see the Mouth of Truth – an intriguing marble slab. Featured in the hit 1950’s movie Roman Holiday, the ancient manhole cover is said to be a lie detector.

As you wind your way back toward the center of Rome, stop at a scenic vantage point to enjoy picture-perfect views over the city. Your tour then finishes back at the start point.

Brilliant would have never seen half of what we did in Rome in half the time due to the quicker segways, which added a great deal of fun to the tour. Our guide was brilliant very knowledgable. Fantastic would recommend to everyone.

This was great fun and nice way to cover a lot of the ancient sites. Sandro guided us through all of the traffic and pedestrians safely. Hope to go on a Segway tour of our city soon.

A must when in Rome! My two teenage daughters and I did this morning tour and we had a fabulous guide Sandro who gave excellent instructions on how to use the Segways before we took off. Sandro's knowledge on Ancient Rome was excellent and he gave us a really enjoyable tour. I highly recommend this tour

Our tour guide Barbie was so great and even though we had been in Rome three times before we still managed to see sites we had never seen before! This was a great way to see Rome! We loved it so much we have already booked our Segways for our trip to Berlin!
