Rome Segway Tour

Price from: 85 $
Duration: 3 hours
See the sights of Ancient Rome by Segway on a 3-hour tour, passing incredible monuments like the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Circus Maximus. On a self-balancing electric scooter, follow a guide around Rome’s 2000-year-old ruins, while hearing their history from an audio guide. Stop for photos by iconic sites and test Rome’s very own ancient lie detector - the Mouth of Truth (Bocca della Verità)!

This small-group tour is limited to eight people, ensuring you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide.

Meet your friendly guide and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, you’ll follow your guide into the downtown streets of Rome.

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 audio commentary, 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.

The Roman Forum (Foro Romano) - Magical
Robbiej4syth , 2015-04-18
We went to the Roman Forum in April and had a magical experience. You can walk around it in about and hour. I would recommend a tour for this or staying around to absorb the environment afterwards... read full review
The Roman Forum (Foro Romano) - Really wonderful
Danielle S , Los Angeles, California, 2015-04-18
The Roman Forum was the first part of my Colosseum tour. I think we spent about an hour and 1/2 here and I could have spent a couple of more days. It was fascinating, and gorgeous, and it didn't... read full review

The Circus Maximus (Circo Massimo) - Not too impressive
Seline H , Dublin, Ireland, 2015-04-18
I wouldn't go out of my way for this, especially since it's all in development and there's very little to see at the moment. The information about the history of it is very interesting though... read full review
The Circus Maximus (Circo Massimo) - Much bigger than expected
suntravellover , Worcester, United Kingdom, 2015-04-14
This is much bigger than I imagined you can see from the grass verge on the one side how high it was and the amount of people it would hold. It must have been a sight to see chariots racing round... read full review
The Circus Maximus (Circo Massimo) - There's not much left here except evidence of the grand scale of this arena.
Shaka_Frank , Aiea, Hawaii, 2015-04-13
It's unfortunate there's not more left of this grand arena. You can see the scale of the place and walk in the path of the old chariot "racetrack". But, as many reviewers have noted, it's mostly an... read full review
The Arch of Constantine (Arco di Costantino) - visited Rome
MisterMaster1975 , 2015-04-15
When I visited Rome, the Arch of Constantine was under restoration; however, it didn't stop us from taking photos of it. It was erected in 315 AD by the Roman senate to commemorate Constantine's... read full review

The Arch of Constantine (Arco di Costantino) - Buy your selfie stick here!
David T , Christchurch, New Zealand, 2015-04-05
Start your Colosseum tour with a selfie here. You must buy the selfie-stick to capture the magnitude of this place. This arch is further testimony to the efficiency of the Romans. To do such a thing... read full review

Church of Santa Maria del Popolo - caravaggio!!
Amogha U , 2015-04-12
The church is not an iconic church. However, the church houses two works of Caravaggio. Take some time as you can see these works from close proximity. An audio guide is not needed here, as there is... read full review
