What You Can Expect

Messina Segway Tour

See top Messina attractions on your Segway shore excursion!

Begin in central Messina, where you’ll join up with your guide and participate in a brief Segway training session. After you feel ready to ride, hit the streets with your guide.

Weave through the bustling Piazza Pugliatti, home to Messina’s Court of Justice and University. Continue along the wide boulevards until you reach the resplendent Messina Duomo, one of the finest cathedrals in Sicily. Admire its Norman-style architecture and gaze upward to see its famed astronomical clock, said to be the world’s largest.

Afterward, glide past some of the city's Baroque fountains and see the Arab-Norman design of the Church of Santissima Annunziata dei Catalani. You'll also swing past Piazza Antonello, where the Neoclassical palaces sit.

Then, head toward the medieval church of San Francesco d’Assisi and the tree-lined paths of Messina’s public park. Top off your 3-hour trip with a stop at the Neptune Fountain and the Palace of the Government before returning to your original departure point.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

This was a very fun tour. It ended up being a private tour with only the two of us with a leader that stayed in front of us and a guide talking through headphones in our ears.

Fantastic experience. Only 5/10 minutes walk from the port. This is a must do tour and would recommend to everyone.

Great way to see the city of Messina. Our guide was fabulous so much history and insight were given. We received excellent instructions on operating the Segway my husband and I had never used one before. We had a blast and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone considering a different way to see the city!

The segway tour was a great way to see the city. It was very hot but we forgot about it because the sight were so educational and entertaining. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it very interesting. As a middle aged couple it took a little bit of practice to master the segway but not too much time.. Both Leo and his son Francesco were very helpful and sweet. Yes, we would recommend this tour but maybe when its cooler The church was a great experience with the lion roaring, the rooster and the rest of the animated features.

The tour and guide were both good and Messina has a nice history, but I had a hard time finding the Segway tour operator. This is Viator's fault as the picture/avatar shown on my tour ticket were not of the Catalani Church where the meeting point was, but instead of a nearby cathedral. The cathedral is very nice, but it is NOT where you meet and it is not the Catalani church. The clock tower next to the cathedral is a must see show at noon everyday that lasts for 10 minutes.
