Ancient Appian Way: Electric Bike Tour
- Small group
- Duration options: 3 - 4.5 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.

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.
