About
There's so much to see in Rome that it can get exhausting getting everywhere on foot. This fun Segway tour is the ideal solution. You'll get a much closer look at Rome than you would in a larger vehicle, but can see more in 3.5 hours than you would walking. Check out the highlights of ancient Rome and watch informational clips about each via a personal screen on your Segway.

What to expect
Explore the main attractions of Ancient Rome during a fun 3.5-hour small-group tour via Segway, a unique and eco-friendly way to discover the city. Receive a personal iPod to use during the tour, on which you'll see an informative presentation at each tour stop. Meet your tour leader at a meeting location just steps away from the Colosseum for a 30-minute training session so everyone learns to use the Segway PT. Ride past the sights, picturing ancient Romans at the Baths of Caracalla and Palatine Hill, and imagining chariot races at the Circus Maximus. Continue up to the lovely Orange Tree Garden to see the towering umbrella pines and revel in the wonderful views over the city. Peek through the keyhole at the Knights of Malta to see St Peter's Basilica framed perfectly. Show your friends just how honest you are at the famous Mouth of Truth. See the Roman Forum to learn about what those ruins once were, from temples to government buildings and more. Admire the architectural genius of Michelangelo at the top of the Capitoline Hill, where you'll visit the piazza he designed. Glide around the perimeter of the Colosseum and a photo-op of the ancient amphitheatre to conclude the tour. With ample energy to spare, you'll circle back to your final stop — the Colosseum — for a glide around its perimeter and the perfect photo op, since the best views of this ancient amphitheater are from outside.

Amazing tour with great tour guide! Highly recommend
Mar 2020
This was my partner's and I favorite activity that we did in Rome. The segways were so fun to ride and our instructor, Gian Marco, was awesome! He taught us how to use the segways very quickly and efficiently, and also gave us a great tour of many historical sites throughout Rome. Overall had an amazing experience and would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Rome who is hoping to get a nice overview of the classic historical sites.

Thank you Lenny for your kind words! As you experienced on your tour, a Segway Tour is an amazing way to visit the beauties of Rome, even if you've never ridden one before. We always do an extensive training and make sure everyone is safe and has the right amount of skill on the vehicles. It was a pleasure for Dimitri and the whole team to have you :)

After tired legs from walking the day before we thoroughly enjoyed learning how to use a Segway. Our tour guide Dimitri showed us hidden gems throughout the city that we otherwise would not have seen. He also knew lots of facts and it was very relaxing and enjoyable way to see the city.

Such a great way to explore Ancient Rome!
Feb 2020 • Couples
We had a really great time exploring Rome on Segways and visiting the ancient sights. Me and my finacé both struggle with a huge intake of historic information but it felt as though we heard just the right amount and were captivated by many of the beautiful sights.

We felt super reassured when our guides were showing us how to Segway with lots of guidance and wisdom - we embarked on our adventure feeling confident and ready to face the Rome roads!

The only point of note is that we went not prepared for the cold weather! We were freezing. So. Note to self - if you go in Feb, be ready with some gloves and a scarf along with a thick coat!

We absolutely loved this tour though and would recommend it to anyone because we covered so much ground that we wouldn’t have been able too had we of attempted to walk!

Thank you so much Noemi for taking the time to review our Segway Tour, we appreciate it. We hope next time you will come, the weather will be warmer, you've just been plain unlucky. By the way, we have plenty of windjackets and wintercoats in the office for you to wear! Have a nice day The EcoArt Team

Great trip, would highly recommend!
Feb 2020 • Couples
I would highly recommended this experience. Overall Rome is a beautiful place and this experience allows you to see the majority of that all in one day.

This was the first time I had been a Segway in my life but it is really easy to pick up.

Our tour guide was Dimitri and I have to say his knowledge was outstanding, but he was also an extremely nice person who was also happy to engage in further conversation and even recommended great places to grab some food.

I also have to give a shout out to Alessandro who also accompanied us around on the trip. His knowledge of Rome was also great and he made the trip all that more enjoyable.

I just want to thank you guys and would recommend this experience to anyone visiting Rome, it was definitely one of the highlights of my trip!

Rome never fails to amaze us with its immense beauty and charm. A nice way to visit the gorgeous fountains, cobblestone streets and ancient ruins is effortlessly gliding on a Segway. Thanks on behalf of the whole EcoArt/Rome by Segway Team

Amazing way to see Ancient Rome
Feb 2020 • Couples
We chose this tour for a fun way to see the city. As it was not peak season, we ended up in a group of just three of us, me, my boyfriend and one other, plus our guide Dimitri! It was so great being such a small group. The segways were not the newest but that didn’t really matter as they did the job. Dimitri was such a brilliant guide and was a really lovely guy, even lending me his gloves when I got cold. So many amazing sights and really fun doing it all on a Segway. I would highly recommend this activity!!

A must do!
Dec 2019 • Friends
Was recommended by a friend to do a Segway tour as we only had a couple of days in Rome and wanted to see as much as possible. This tour did not disappoint and our tour guide Dimitri was really great. We were shown how to use the segways safely and after a few minutes using them it is really easy and fun. 100% would recommend!!
