The city of Rome is an open air museum. A Segway is the ideal means of transportation with which to explore the city center. Glide your way through ancient monuments, lively squares and gurgling fountains, all of which you can discover on this half-day Rome Segway tour.
Your experience begins a 5-minute walk from the Colosseum. From here your expert tour guide will start with a 30-minute Segway training session. Within minutes you’ll be gliding around; the Segways are easy to use.
Once you have your bearings, roll through Rome’s medieval streets discovering its most famous architectural and artistic wonders. To reach the heart of the historic center, ride along the famous Imperial Forum to the Campidoglio square, designed by the master Michelangelo himself. From here head towards Campo de’ Fiori, known for its daily street market and nightlife. [readmore]
The famous Piazza Navona is a short glide away. Here, experience Bernini’s incredible Fountain of the Four Rivers, which has recently been restored to its full glory. Navona Square is home to talented street performers and is always filled with a lively crowd.
A sure highlight of the day is a visit to the impressive Pantheon, one of Rome’s best preserved ancient temples, now a consecrated basilica boasting a stunning 142 foot freestanding dome. Stop in Sant’Ignazio, one of Rome’s most impressive and lesser-known churches. The last two stops need no introduction: toss a coin and make a wish to return to Rome at the one and only Trevi Fountain before culminating at the foot of the Spanish Steps.
At each of Rome’s famous sights, enjoy a presentation on a personal iPod, which will be provided at the beginning of the tour. Discover fascinating facts and curiosities about each of the spots you’ll visit in a modern and entertaining audio-visual presentation created uniquely for this tour.
