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, youll follow your guide into the downtown streets of Rome.

Glide toward the area known as Capitoline Hill, and as you approach it youll 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 Trajans Column. Hear the history of the site in its heyday from your live guide, 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, Romes 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 1950s 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.

  • Having never been on a Segway, this tour was a little scary but it honestly did not take long to get comfortable riding the Segway, even for my non-adventurous wife and daughter! Seeing everything while on the Segway was amazing and it was so easy to get around and much quicker than walking. Our tour guide was phenomenal and this was the highlight of the tour. Another amazing part was that we were shown a virtual reality portion indicating what the Colosseum and Circus Maximus would have likely looked like at the time of ancient Rome - that pushed this tour over the top.

  • I've been lucky enough o be on many segway tours but this was one of my most enjoyable. Rome is packed full of history and Marco brought it alive though his animated stories with the added bonus of the use of VR to show you what the Colosseum and other locations looked like during ancient Rome.

    Not even the lousy weather could put the dampeners on this trip.

  • Love this way to see Rome! As an older woman, I found that, after a brief tutorial, it was easy and soooooooooo much fun. We enjoyed the whole experience so much that we returned for a nighttime tour which was less crowded and an opportunity to see this amazing city from a different viewpoint. At the Spanish steps there was a vendor from Colorado, USA, selling roasted chestnuts. Interesting way to spend a Summer, huh? All of the guides were so pleasant and informative. Everyone should do this. Thanks, VIator.

  • The Rome Segway Tour was amazing! I had never been on a Segway before but the tour guide was very patient as she guided the group through the streets of Rome. She was very informative and entertaining. By the end of the tour the streets were lit up from the night lints. A beautiful site to see.

  • I would give this Tour a 10 Star if I could! So much fun and we got to see so many beautiful sights of Rome! I would definitely recommend this to everyone who is going to Rome. This is a must do and I will be doing this again when we go back! In fact, it is one of the things I would go back to Rome to do! My kids enjoyed it so much. They had never been on a Segway but the guide was very patient with us and went over and beyond what we expected!

  • Our tour guide Pat was awesome! We had a small group 6 total so it was managable and we felt safe whipping around the city. I would highly recommend this for covering a lot of ground in a short time and not getting exhausted! We had wonderful weather - which also added to the experience.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Tour guide Roberto Bob was knowledgeable and passionate about his city. The office was a little tricky to find so allow a little extra time to find it. They are using Virtual Reality googles at a couple stops which was a very clever enhancement to the experience. My wife and I have done Segway tours in many cities and would rank this one near the top. Very safe and informative.
