Rome Segway Tour
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 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, 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.

I have done loads of these tours in different cities including a previous one in Rome. This was the best so far due to the guide (Mat). He was the ultimate professional and has great knowledge that he pus across in a very nice way. This guy is as good as any historian that you pay a lot more money for. Highly recommended.
Great tour, managed to manouvre round the busy streets of Rome! Got to see lots of different parts of Rome with history. Tour was very long, three hours!
We loved our Segway Tour - it was so much fun and so very informative....our guide Raffa was just wonderful!! We would recommend this tour to everyone - the Segways were so very much fun to ride on and we got to see so much of Rome - loved, loved, loved it!!
We had a great time on our tour. Give yourself plenty of time to find the place since it is on a side street. This was a great way to see Rome. Our guide was a nice guy and also knowledgeable about this city. There was a lady on our tour that wasn't comfortable riding the Segway and he was very supportive in helping her. Great fun for everyone.
My husband and I took our 17 and 12 year old grandsons on this tour. It was AMAZING. The 12 year old was allowed to participate because he met the height and weight requirement. It always a good idea to ask. The company also does segway tours in Florence, wish I had known that. I would highly recommend this segway company. We all loved it.
Claudio was the BEST. Very engaging and great with the kids. It was an amazing way to see a lot of Rome.
I had never been on a Segway before, but heard its easy. It IS! This tour is the greatest way to see Rome. Our guide, Marcello, was just the best. He made it so much fun and interesting. I highly recommend this tour. Youll see the Coliseum, the Forum, Circus Maximus and a LOT more. We and Marcello took some great pics on this tour. It was such fun in this fascinating city.
