Know More about this tour

Meet your guide near Porta Catania in central Taormina, 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 through the leafy city streets to Borgo Medievale Taorminas oldest quarter.

Stop for pictures in glamorous Piazza del Duomo, seeing the Baroque fountain that bears the citys emblem the Centauressa and admiring the impressive city hall. Work your way toward the plush 5-star San Domenico hotel and hear of its use as an ancient monastery in bygone days.

Visit the black-and-white-paved Piazza IX Aprile to soak up the views of the Ionian Sea and Mount Etna, and then circle around to glide to Taorminas main street, Corso Umberto. Villa Communale is nearby, so head inside to discover a lush city park with views as colorful as its flowers.

Make the most of the shade beneath the park's lofty Cypress trees while meandering around, and then head back out to the city streets. The citys star attraction, Teatro Greco, lies ahead so have your camera ready to capture photos of this incredibly preserved Ancient Greek amphitheater. Hear about the gladiatorial games that the Romans once held here, and of the film festivals that the theater plays host to nowadays.

Leave the theater and then continue to Porta Catania. After a stop outside the Capuchin church, finish your tour back at the start point.

  • It was very well done. We felt completely safe. Leo and Valentina were wonderful. We saw lots that we would not have seen on our own. Spent time making sure we were comfortable on the Segway.

  • For some reason, my mother had trouble controlling the Segway. Leo very kindly offered to guide her all the way through, even though the streets were crowded, and his son was also helpful. The French-speaking guide, Vero, was very communicative and interesting, bringing a wealth of historical perspective and personal insight into the monuments, the architecture, but also the cultural background and the diversity of influences that characterizes this region and Taormina in particular. We appreciated the content as well as the attention and patience. The tour is definitely worth the money and time, even for people who do not have mobility problems. Recommended!

  • The tour guide promised photos, took our emails never received them

  • Was very good. Everyone was so nice and the guide was very knowledgeable .

  • This was a great way to see Taormina. Guide was extremely knowledgeable about Taormina and its history. Segway technician who accompanied us ensured we were confident in the use of the Segway and provided us with helmets.

  • Our Segway tour was so much fun. None of us had been on a Segway before, and they spent the time teaching us how to operate it. It was scary at first thinking about driving through all the tourists on the streets, but it was surprising very easy. Would definitely do another Segway tour again. My husband now wants one. Our guides were very good.
