TOUR ITINERARY

Discover our most popular tour of Rome by Segway. Glide effortlessly through the wonders of Ancient Rome on your very own modern “chariot” – the SegwayPT! You’ll travel up and down the most beautiful of Rome’s seven famous hills, covering must-see sights such as the Colosseum, Circus Maximus, the Roman Forum and Mouth of Truth.

Your experience begins at our office, conveniently located near the Colosseum. Your tour leader will start with a 30-minute training session to help you get comfortable on your Segway. Within minutes you’ll realize just how easy and intuitive it is!

You’ll imagine young Romans racing their chariots, Ben Hur-style, at Circus Maximus (Circo Massimo) while enjoying a view of the Palatine Hill. From here, we’ll easily ride up the Aventine Hill — no tired feet! — and discover its off-the-beaten track terraced gardens leading on to Rome’s best panoramic views. We’ll even visit the famous ‘keyhole’ of Rome’s Knights of Malta. Take your turn peeking through the keyhole – what do you see? It’s just one of the many surprises that await you on your Ancient Rome Segway Tour.

Put your honesty on trial at the Mouth of Truth (Bocca della Verità), the enormous Ancient Roman drain cap that was made famous by Audrey Hepburn in ‘Roman Holiday’. If your hand survives the test of truth, we’ll make our way over to the Roman Forum where we’ll roll around the perimeter of Rome’s most important archeological park, enjoying incredible views over ruins, columns and ancient temples. A sure highlight is the Capitoline Hill, where we’ll admire Michelangelo’s Piazza and the stunning panorama over the forums.

Without breaking a sweat, we’ll drive over to our final (and most important!) stop: the Colosseum. Take in the sight of this majestic world icon from your unique viewpoint on a Segway as we visit from outside. This is a perfect photo opportunity!

At each site you’ll enjoy a presentation on a personal iPod, which you’ll be provided with at the beginning of the tour. You’ll 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!

If you are looking for a fun, eco-friendly way to discover the best that Ancient Rome has to offer in just a few hours – we’re sure you’ll love our Ancient Rome Segway Tour! You’ll cover more ground and see more without the effort it would take the cover the same route on foot. All tours depart from and end at our office near the Colosseum where a bathroom, free Wifi and water are available to all of our guests.

  1. 5 out of 5

    Riding with the Segway even if we were newbies has been intuitive. The group was 6 people and we ran at the discovery of Rome with an archeologist with depth in Roman knowledges. Shortly we were already at Circux Maximun, where the film Ben Hur was filmed. He thought us about a fair optical illusion at the orange park and then to the terrace for the Roman Forum. A jump back to 2000 years ago. Every single part of the tour is worth every penny. To do it again with our guide Edward. Recommended even for beginners!

    Booked a daytime tour by Segway – it was brilliant, saw and heard about lots of things we would not have seen on our own – Met some lovely people in our group of six. Wanted to keep the Segway for the rest of the day. Thank you to Flávio our guide for your wonderful way of telling us about what we saw and ensuring we were enjoying ourselves. Highly recommended.

    If you’re looking for a fun way to explore Rome then I would not think twice about recommending this. We had a lovely 3 hours travelling around Rome on the Segways which made it such an easy and fun experience! Flávio was absolutely incredible and had so much knowledge about Rome and made us feel so comfortable on the Segways before we started the tour. We met some lovely people in our group which made it even better. We didn’t want it to end! What a lovely experience and it has definitely been our favourite thing about visiting Rome!

  4. 5 out of 5

    Had a lovely experience with our guide Riccardo, explored everything, very knowledgeable about the architecture and history. Excellent Segway teacher as I had no experience before hand and now I am very confident on one. Great real world knowledge to link back to modern day settings, very chatty and easy to talk to. We highly recommend our Roman Riccardo!
