What To Expect

Your tour starts in central Rome where you meet your guide and get comfortable on your 2-wheeled, self-balancing Segway during a brief practice session. When you’re ready, take off with your guide through Rome’s historical center. Allowing you to cover more ground than a walking tour while still being outside in the fresh air, a Segway tour is the ideal way to experience a city filled with so many must-see attractions.

Head toward Capitoline Hill to visit the archaeological ruins of the Roman Forum, home to landmarks like the Arch of Constantine and Trajan’s Column. Listen to a bit of history about ancient Rome from your live as you glide around the edge of the forum, and then pass by Palentine Hill on your way to Circus Maximus, where chariot races were once held.

Continue to the Colosseum for a photo op of this legendary amphitheater where gruesome gladiator battles once took place, which you hear about via your live guide. Then weave your way over to the Church of Santa Maria to check out Bocca della Verità, the Mouth of Truth, a carved piece of marble made famous in the Audrey Hepburn movie 'Roman Holiday.' Legend says, if you put your mouth into the sculpture and tell a lie, your hand will be bitten off.

End your tour by making your way back to the starting point, stopping for a photo-op at a scenic vantage point along the way.

Great fun
gabe_s, Jun 2022
Seeing a lot of the more popular tourist places and not having to walk. Marcelo was great and funny too. We had a small group, so it was nice.
Wonderful
Kevin_R, Jun 2022
Absolutley wonderful! Highly recommend. Never set foot on a segway before today, no problem. Marco is the best!!
Fun way to experience Rome
MarcosGuzman, Jun 2022
This is one of the best tours in Rome! It starts with a very friendly welcoming by the staff and a quick introduction and lesson on riding a segway. After taking off the tour guide takes you to some of the most beautiful sight seeing views of Rome. Our tour guide Marco was amazing and allowed for everybody to learn more about Rome using modern references that allow you to easily understand just how Rome was from start to present. I recommend taking the tour as early as possible so that you can enjoy the ride in the cooler weather rather than suffer in the dreadful heat of the afternoon. After learning how easy it is to ride a Segway I think I am ready to be a mall cop! JK.
Not to be missed !
Andrew_M, Jun 2022
Booking through the site was easy and the company we were booked with (Fat Tire Tours) was wonderful. Everyone at the shop was great and the tour was perfect. Marco (our tour guide) provided great knowledge about the area, insight, and took us to the best spots. We had two private walking tours before this of roughly 3 hours each (Vatican and the Coliseum) and this was by far the best for us. It was the perfect mix of humor, fun, and history. And the segways were great!
Great way to see the highlights of Rome
Pamela_B, May 2022

5 Stars All The Way
Wendy_H, May 2022
Christian and his team were amazing!! Not only were we safe and informed, we had a blast on the Segways! I highly recommend not only Fat Tire Tours, but doing this tour as soon as you get to Rome to see all the things you want to get more familiar with. So good!!!
The Best of Rome via Segway!!
Scott_J, May 2022
We made a GREAT discovery by engaging Rome Segway Tours/Fat Tire Tours. Our guide, Christian, provided us a fantastic tour of the city. I highly recommend that you take the tour soon after you arrive so that you can see and appreciate areas that you would like to visit in depth. Christian was a caring and articulate guide who led us to places that we would never see otherwise. This is a Rome MUST DO.
Great tour
Cathy_E, May 2022
This was a highlight of our trip! Great way to see alot in a couple hours! Love love loved the tour!
Great tour of wonders large and small.
Nate, May 2022
This tour was a lot of fun and much better than our “English speaking tour” early in the day. Christian was an excellent tour guide and show us some really lovely sites off the beaten path; things we never would have found without him. Highly recommend!
Awesome Segway tour of Ancient Rome
James_H, May 2022
My wife and I have been to Rome several times before, and we tried this Segway tour to try something different. It was an absolutely wonderful experience since the Segway is an ideal vehicle to cover the areas of central Romes historical sites. Our guide Christian was a superb instructor on both the Segway and the history of Rome. He even brought virtual reality viewers along to bring Romes history to life for our group of 6. We thoroughly enjoyed viewing central Rome with Christian as our guide. Highly recommend to any tourists able to ride a bike.
Awesome, must do experience
Roni_M, May 2022
If this is your first time to Rome and even f it’s not this is a GREAT first day experience. Marco was amazing and explained the history of the city to give an understanding of why and what you want to do in the city. After this tour you’ll Look around and see solid evidence of the different periods in civilization. I can rave about this experience enough. We loved our time with Marco!
Awesome Segway tour of main areas in Rome
catie_m, Apr 2022
Best tour we took the whole trip. We got to see so much of Rome and fast because of the Segways. We were all able to do it - different sizes, different ages. Marcus was wonderful -full of information and even following up on tours we were doing through different companies making sure we knew where to meeting point was and also gave recommendations on wine bars, restaurants and what to go back to that we should do again and what we should do at night. We loved every part of this to work and highly highly recommend it!
Great!!!!

Rome by Segway
Ken_H, Feb 2020
We’ve done Segway tours in many large cities and while we have enjoyed them all for different reasons this one in Rome tops them all. We were part of a small group however the way the tour was structured it would have been just as great in a larger group. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and the headphones were great as he told us about the history of Rome and what we were seeing on the entire tour. There was quite a few things on the tour that you won’t hear of or see on any of the other tours. We did the daytime trip and would have booked the night trip (different route) but the temperature was dropping too much at night. We stopped at all the major sites even just for 5 minute (sometimes 10) to ensure that everyone had photo opportunities. Our guide was extremely safety conscious and made sure to alert us of obstacles or to make sure that traffic stopped so that we could safely cross....not an easy feat in Rome. When we come back this will definitely be a tour that we do again.
