Know More about this tour

Leave Palermo Port and meet your guide in the center of Palermo. Start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway; once you feel comfortable, youll weave through Palermos streets, following your guide at a steady pace.

Glide across to Piazza Verdi to see Teatro massimo Italys largest opera house and swing past Capo Market where a mish-mash of busy alleyways are home to stalls selling some of Palermos best food. Maneuver past the crowds to Piazza della Vittoria and stop for pictures against the backdrop of the Palace of the Normans. The lavish gardens of Villa Bonanno are in the square, too, and youll see its lush palm trees and a few interesting Roman relics before leaving the square.

Continue to Piazza Bologni to see two ornate palaces Villafranca and Belmote-Riso as well as statues of King Charles V (or the King of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies, as he once precociously titled himself). Pass alongside Arab-Norman churches and see the Gallery of Modern Art Palermos cultural hotspot thats housed inside a former convent.

Stop for more photos outside Mirto Place and work your way past the green oasis that is Garibaldi Garden, next to Steri-Chiaramonte Palace. Then, head to the neighborhood of La Kalsa to glide around Piazza Kalsa. Pass through the Greeks Gate, and then head out to Foro Italico the citys charming seafront. Stop to admire the sights at Villa a Mare and see some of Palermos top attractions gracing the vista: Butera Palace, Felice Gate and the Church of Santa Maria della Catena.

Pass the ancient port of Palermo, gliding into the neighborhood of Castellammare, and then continue along the waterfront of the modern harbor before finishing at the start point.
