What You Can Expect

Best Taormina Segway Tour

See the sights of Taormina by Segway!

Meet your guide near Porta Catania in central Taormina, 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 through the leafy city streets to Borgo Medievale – Taormina’s oldest quarter.

Stop for pictures in glamorous Piazza del Duomo, seeing the Baroque fountain that bears the city’s emblem– the Centauressa – and admiring the impressive city hall. Work your way toward the plush 5-star San Domenico hotel and hear of its use as an ancient monastery in bygone days.

Visit the black-and-white-paved Piazza IX Aprile to soak up the views of the Ionian Sea and Mount Etna, and then circle around to glide to Taormina’s main street, Corso Umberto. Villa Communale is nearby, so head inside to discover a lush city park with views as colorful as its flowers.

Make the most of the shade beneath the park's lofty Cypress trees while meandering around, and then head back out to the city streets. The city’s star attraction, Teatro Greco, lies ahead so have your camera ready to capture photos of this incredibly preserved Ancient Greek amphitheater. Hear about the gladiatorial games that the Romans once held here, and of the film festivals that the theater plays host to nowadays.

Leave the theater and then continue to Porta Catania. After a stop outside the Capuchin church, finish your tour back at the start point.

Was very good. Everyone was so nice and the guide was very knowledgeable .

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Our Segway tour was so much fun. None of us had been on a Segway before, and they spent the time teaching us how to operate it. It was scary at first thinking about driving through all the tourists on the streets, but it was surprising very easy. Would definitely do another Segway tour again. My husband now wants one. Our guides were very good.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

This was a great way to see Taormina. Guide was extremely knowledgeable about Taormina and its history. Segway technician who accompanied us ensured we were confident in the use of the Segway and provided us with helmets.
