Rome: Private City Highlights Segway Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 2 hours
Segway tours make for a fun way to discover Rome's history but, let's face it, if you choose to do one you're hardly going to be racing up the Spanish Steps! Here are five great sights in the City of Seven Hills that you can explore on wheels.
Having set the scene to films from La Dolce Vita and Roman Holiday to the Lizzie McGuire Movie, the fabulous Trevi Fountain is as much a popular culture icon as it is an historical one!
If the shape of the square bears an uncanny resemblance to a charioteering stadium, that's because it was built upon the site of Ancient Rome's Stadium of Domitian!
The "Field of Flowers" has been a market square since the 15th century. It still runs every morning, but the hustle and bustle continues well into night tour territory too!
You may not be able to ride your Segway through St. Peter's Basilica, but you can still see the spectacular building and its impressive Vatican neighbors from this distinct plaza.
Prices for Rome Segway tours start at €30 (per person) but can cost upwards of €150, largely dependent on the length of the tour and the Segway models offered. However, be aware that you may be required to leave a deposit on the machines.
Your Segway tour is likely to have minimum and maximum weight restrictions in the region of 45kg (100lbs) to 118kg (260lbs). Lighter and heavier individuals can contact the tour provider for more precise information and guidance. Participants are required by law to be at least 16 years of age.

I’ve always wanted to ride a Segway and to do it in Rome was an added bonus. Our tour guide, Marco, was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure we were safe when riding the Segway. He always reminded us to watch corners and where the wheels of the Segway were going so we remained safe. Also he reminded us to keep soft knees so our backs weren’t affected. He was very knowledgeable about the sights we saw as well, and the virtual reality goggles were an added bonus that made the experience enjoyable. A very positive experience . 10/10 would recommend
Amazing way to experience the beautiful city of Rome! We were lucky that we had booked onto a group tour but only myself and my partner were there so it was more of a private tour - so happy that our tour guide didn’t cancel due to low numbers! We really appreciated that! Our tour guide was called Santi, he was really fun, knowledgeable and taught us how to easily ride the Segway really quickly! We had an amazing time, definitely worth the money. Thanks so much Santi.
Marcelo our guide was brilliant from start to finish- the demonstration on how to safely use the Segway was thorough and he made sure we were confident before setting off. We got to see many of the attractions all with detailed commentary -Marcelo was happy to go at our pace and he answered all our questions - very knowledgeable guy.
The Segway tour was a great experience. Our guide was great and showed us lots of unknown places that were amazing to see! The booking was smooth and had no issues! Would definitely recommend to anyone who has a few hours to spare in Rome!
