Know More about this tour

Trastevere's medieval labyrinth of winding streets with its colorful palazzi and lively squares has maintained its small-neighborhood charm for centuries. Today, Trastevere is the go-to spot for locals for an evening out at the many wonderful bars, cafs, and restaurants lining the streets.

Your tour departs from Via Celimontana, conveniently located a short walk from the Colosseum. Discover just how easy it is to ride a Segway with a brief training before taking off with your private Tour Leader.

Head into the heart of Trastevere. Aboard your Segway, explore the areas characteristic alleyways and pass through the famous squares or piazzas Trilussa, Santa Maria in Trastevere, and even Piazza San Cosimato, home of Trasteveres local open-air market. The area is a pedestrian paradise and most of the areas youll visit have been closed off to traffic, making the Segway ride particularly pleasant. See locals going about their daily lives, crowds of friends meeting up in the piazzas, laundry strung up on lines hanging over alleys, and more.

After youve had time to soak up the festive atmosphere of Trastevere, head up to the top of the Gianicolo (Janiculum). This is the second tallest of Romes many hills; from here, the panorama over the city below is simply stunning. With ample time to enjoy the view, visit Fountain dellacqua Paola, an impressive monumental Baroque fountain dating back to 1612. Your itinerary has also been perfectly timed to catch a Janiculum ritual that dates back to 1847: daily at noon, a cannon shot is fired in the direction of the Tiber river to signal the exact time.

On your way back, catch a glimpse of Tiberina Island and the Colosseum before heading to lunch. Your guide has handpicked a restaurant where you can relax and enjoy a typical Roman meal.

At each stop youll enjoy a presentation on a personal iPod, which youll be provided with at the beginning of the tour. Youll discover fascinating facts and curiosities about each of the spots youll visit in a modern and entertaining audio-visual presentation.

If you want to visit Romes most quintessential quartiere, youll cover more ground on a Segway and see more without the effort it would take the cover the same route on foot. Your tour will conclude back at your original departure point near the Colosseum where a bathroom, free Wifi, water, and caf are available.
