Rome is a sight to behold from any angle, with its ancient monuments and Renaissance architecture. On this 2-hour Segway tour, you’ll zip along cobbled streets and through bustling piazzas in search of the Eternal City’s most spectacular viewpoints. Head for the hills for unparalleled vistas of the Tiber River and Rome’s dome-dotted cityscape; discover a secret spot from which to see St Peter’s Basilica; and get panoramic views of Circus Maximus, the Colosseum and other star attractions. This small-group tour is limited to just four participants, ensuring you’ll receive personalized attention throughout.
Choose the departure time most convenient for you, and meet your guide in central Rome. Then, strap on your provided helmet and get familiar with your self-balancing Segway during a brief orientation session.
Once you feel confident, zoom off along Rome’s ancient streets behind your guide. Breeze through the Jewish Quarter, a bustling district where Romans and tourists alike flock to sample Roman-Jewish and Middle Eastern cuisine, and soak up the festive atmosphere. Then continue to the Temple of Hercules and learn the legend behind the so-called ‘Mouth of Truth’ (Bocca della Verità).
Ascend Aventine Hill to Parco Savello, a former orange grove known locally as Giardino degli Aranci (the Garden of Oranges), for a postcard-perfect view of Rome. After you’ve had your fill, seek out the secret peephole that offers an unrivalled view of St Peter’s Basilica.
Next, stop for a photo opportunity of Circus Maximus, where chariot races were once held, before continuing alongside the Palatine to the mighty Colosseum. Pose in front of the colossal monument, arguably Ancient Rome’s most iconic treasure, and then cruise by the Roman Forum, taking in its timeworn buildings and learning about its history.
Continue up Capitoline Hill, one of the original Seven Hills of Rome, to see the square designed by Michelangelo and to visit a beautiful terrace for another panoramic view of the Eternal City.
Make your last stop at the Theatre of Marcellus, once the largest and most important of Rome’s theaters. Your tour then concludes in central Rome.
