What You Can Expect
Once you're ready, take off through the city streets to Taormina’s oldest quarter, Borgo Medievale. Check out the Baroque fountain in Piazza del Duomo, the town hall and coast past the San Domenico Hotel, once used as an ancient monastery.
Gaze out at the Ionian Sea as you cruise through Piazza IX Aprile, and travel down Corso Umberto, Taormina’s main drag. Then head inside the nearby Villa Comunale to wander the city park, resplendent with flowers, cypress trees and views of Mt Etna.
Afterward, make your way to the Teatro Greco, dating back to the third century BC. Hear about the gladiatorial games once hosted in the ancient Greek amphitheater as you wander the city's star attraction.
Continue to Porta Catania, where you’ll pause outside the Capuchin church before concluding at your original departure point.
For some reason, my mother had trouble controlling the Segway. Leo very kindly offered to guide her all the way through, even though the streets were crowded, and his son was also helpful. The French-speaking guide, Vero, was very communicative and interesting, bringing a wealth of historical perspective and personal insight into the monuments, the architecture, but also the cultural background and the diversity of influences that characterizes this region and Taormina in particular. We appreciated the content as well as the attention and patience. The tour is definitely worth the money and time, even for people who do not have mobility problems. Recommended!
The tour guide promised photos, took our emails never received them
Was very good. Everyone was so nice and the guide was very knowledgeable .
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.
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.
