Know More about this tour

Meet your friendly guide at Catalani Church in the center of Messina, and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, youll weave through the modern streets of Messina, following your guide at a steady pace.

Glide across to Piazza Cairoli, the commercial center of the town, and weave through the throngs of locals going about their day-to-day business to Piazza Pugliatti, where Messinas Court of Justice and University can be found. Pass along the wide and sweeping boulevards that are so typical of Messina and head toward Piazza Duomo the citys crowd-drawing square.

Circle around the marble-carved Fountain of Orion and hop off your Segway for photos in front of Messina Duomo one of Sicily's finest cathedrals. Having been rebuilt several times since the 12th century, little remains of the original building but youll find its beautiful faade to be a visual delight. Marvel at its Norman-style architecture and gaze upward to see its famous astronomical clock; its said to be the worlds largest.

Continue to the Church of Santissima Annunziata dei Catalani a lovely Arab-Norman church and pass alongside some of the citys finer Baroque fountains. See a monument to Don Juan of Austria who liberated the city from the Turks in the 16th century, and then swing past the Neo-Classical palaces of Piazza Antonello.

Start to work your way back to the start point, passing San Francesco dAssisi a lovely medieval church -- and weaving through the tree-lined paths in Messinas public park. Visit Piazza Unit d'Italia to see Montorsolis Fountain of Neptune and the Palace of the Government before returning to Catalani Church.
