Rome Highlights Segway Tour with Pantheon and Trevi Fountain
Once you feel comfortable on your Segway, follow your tour leader into Rome’s historic center and glide around its medieval streets and piazzas.
See the ruins of the Roman Forum and stop at the oval-shaped Piazza del Campidoglio, designed by Michelangelo in 1538. Snap photos here and then navigate around the bustling Campo de’ Fiori on route to the Piazza Navona. Here, stop to admire the masterpiece that is Fountain of the Four Rivers, designed by the celebrated sculptor Bernini in 1651.
Absorb the ebullient atmosphere of the square, a mecca for street artists, and then continue to the Pantheon. View the stately exterior of this incredible temple that was rebuilt by the Emperor Hadrian in 126 AD, and if time allows, head inside to see its freestanding dome.
Next, stop at the Church of Sant’Ignazio di Loyola, and if time permits, go inside to witness its spectacular ceiling fresco by Andrea Pozzo.
Arrive at the Trevi Fountain and pause to toss a coin into its waters for good luck. Then, ride to the Spanish Steps on the Piazza di Spagna. Admire this butterfly-shaped staircase and hear how it was constructed between 1723 and 1725 in rich Baroque style.
Afterward, ride back to your starting point where your tour comes to an end.

Most of Romes stunning sites ticked off in a memorable three hours. The narrow cobbled streets and vast crowds dont make great bedfellows with Segways - unlike Chicago and Madrid, with their wide, sweeping promenades - but our guide was patient and kept us rolling along nicely. The quality of the machines was a step up from what I had used before, which made them great fun. If youre of a nervous disposition then Segways may not be for you, but if youre prepared to give it a go then youll be rewarded with a highlight of your trip.
This tour was the highlight of our three week tour of Italy. Our guide, Eddy, was knowledgeable, informative and fun! We were able to see all the highlights of Rome and had a blast on the Segway. It only took a few minutes to learn the ropes and we were off. I will definitely do a Segway tour whenever I get the opportunity...This is one tour that you shouldn't miss!
Our guide Valerio was very informative and he did a good job to navigate us through the nice streets of Rome. This is our 4th segway and this one was the best of all.
