Know More about this tour

Meet your friendly guide and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, you’ll follow your guide into the downtown streets of Rome.

Glide toward the area known as Capitoline Hill, and as you approach it you’ll be met with the jaw-dropping sights of Ancient Rome. Once the home of richly elaborate temples, shops, markets and government buildings, the area is now a fascinating archeological site peppered with 2,000-year-old world-famous ruins.

Head right up to it and weave around the outskirts of the Roman Forum, seeing grandiose monuments like the Arch of Constantine and Trajan’s Column. Hear the history of the site in its heyday from your audio commentary, learning about its status as the administrative center of Rome.

Pass Palentine Hill and stop for a look at Circus Maximus, the vast stretch of flat land where chariot races were once held to entertain up to 250,000 locals. Continue to the Colosseum, Rome’s iconic monument on the east side of Ancient Rome, and stop for photos while listening to commentary about the gory, yet glorified, gladiator battles that once took place inside.

After weaving through the crowds outside the ruins, take back to the streets and head to the Church of Santa Maria to see the Mouth of Truth – an intriguing marble slab. Featured in the hit 1950’s movie Roman Holiday, the ancient manhole cover is said to be a lie detector.

As you wind your way back toward the center of Rome, stop at a scenic vantage point to enjoy picture-perfect views over the city. Your tour then finishes back at the start point.

  • Outstanding tour. Highly recommend this as the best way to see Rome. Alisha our guide. Was amazing. So helpful. So passionate about Rome and her job. Joust made the experience so much fun and interesting too. It's a must do

  • My husband and I took this same tour last year and enjoyed it. I took my mother-in-law and sister-in-law this year on the same tour and we really enjoyed it. Alessandra was wonderful. She was very attentive to my mother-in-law while she was on her Segway. This was her first time on a Segway and was a little apprehensive. Alessandra was very knowledgeable about all the places she took us to. I highly recommend this tour.

  • Patricia was the leader of our small group of only five people, while other Segway groups had a different guide. Having never ridden a Segway, Patricia did a great job with easy and clear instructions on the use of the Segway, giving everyone enough time to be comfortable before venturing out onto the busy streets of Rome. We covered a lot more ground than you would cover on foot, and Patricia did a great job explaining what we were looking at, coupled with photos of what Rome used to look like when the various locations were still in use. The headsets worked well, so Patricia could give us lots of details as we rode our Segways around Rome. The Tour was very well organized and proceeded at a perfect pace for a truly enjoyable time. I would highly recommend taking this tour on your first day in Rome - it was absolutely fantastic!

  • The highlight of our time in Rome. I booked this for my wife and I to celebrate our 20th anniversary, and it was tremendous fun. Our guide, Rafael, was excellent, showing us how to ride the Segway and telling us interesting facts about Roman history during the tour. Highly recommended!

  • The best way of seeing Rome without getting achey feet! Our lady guide whose name unfortunately I can't remember made sure we felt safe before setting off. It was a bit daunting going out into the Rome traffic but the drivers there are obviously used to Segways and let us through. Amazing seeing all the sights so easily and it helped us plan the rest of our stay in Rome. The guide explained a lot of the history of the areas and was very knowledgeable. Highly recommended.....even for oldies like us! 56 and 60

  • What a blast!
    Great way to see landmarks in a short time. Guide was great and informative, with videos on iPad, at actual sites..
    Segway is really the best way to view a city quickly, and fun too. Want to do this again.
    One unique thing we did get to see was 3 countries in 1 view... thru a keyhole. how?? you'll have to go and see.

    As a side note strongly recommend you do Vatican breakfast tour.

  • Fantastic guide. The ONLY way to see the highlights of Rome.

  • absolutely fantastic very easy to use a segway covered a lot of ground and saw much more then if we did on foot, the guides were great ,they kept us safe from any traffic which I thought would be a problem in Rome But no problem at all.
    Bottom line Do it you won't be sorry

  • Amazing! Tony was a great guide. He made us feel safe and comfortable, and he was well-informed and funny. We enjoyed this immensely. Thank you,Tony!

  • Totally loved this tour! Although a little apprehensive at first, I soon got the hang of the Segway thanks to our wonderful guide Lori, and in the end I didn't want to get off! If I can do it, anyone can! Highly recommended!
