What To Expect

Your tour starts in central Rome where you meet your guide and get comfortable on your 2-wheeled, self-balancing Segway during a brief practice session. When you’re ready, take off with your guide through Rome’s historical center. Allowing you to cover more ground than a walking tour while still being outside in the fresh air, a Segway tour is the ideal way to experience a city filled with so many must-see attractions.

Head toward Capitoline Hill to visit the archaeological ruins of the Roman Forum, home to landmarks like the Arch of Constantine and Trajan’s Column. Listen to a bit of history about ancient Rome from your live as you glide around the edge of the forum, and then pass by Palentine Hill on your way to Circus Maximus, where chariot races were once held.

Continue to the Colosseum for a photo op of this legendary amphitheater where gruesome gladiator battles once took place, which you hear about via your live guide. Then weave your way over to the Church of Santa Maria to check out Bocca della Verità, the Mouth of Truth, a carved piece of marble made famous in the Audrey Hepburn movie 'Roman Holiday.' Legend says, if you put your mouth into the sculpture and tell a lie, your hand will be bitten off.

End your tour by making your way back to the starting point, stopping for a photo-op at a scenic vantage point along the way.

Unforgettable Segway Tour with Matt in Rome
Escapades_T, May 2024
Matt's Segway tour through Rome's oldest quarter was an absolute delight. From the Colosseum to the Pantheon, Matt expertly guided us through the city's iconic sites with informative yet light-hearted commentary. His attention to detail and care for his guests made for a memorable experience. I highly recommend joining Matt for an enriching adventure through Rome's ancient wonders.
Excellent
Catriona_K, May 2024
If I could leave more than 5 stars, I would ! Our guide Mat was so friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable so a HUGE thank you to him. If you get a chance to do this segway tour of Rome, you should.
Most memorable tour
Mandar_D, Mar 2024
Segway tour was most memorable part of our Rome tour. Marco was excellent. Must try experience in Rome
Brilliant 3 hour Segway !
Tacey_L, Mar 2024
We met at the shop/office and checked in quickly. There were 3 couples plus a tour guide trainee who joined us for the experience. We all linked our earphone’s with the tour guide so we could hear him clearly whilst in motion. After a safety introduction and a couple of videos on the iPad we all practiced in a quiet square next to the meeting point. Once the guide was confident we were all competent we were off! With the guide stopping at any points of interest including his vast knowledge of the area. We visited Trajan Forum, Imperial Forum, Colosseum, Arch of Constantine, Circus Maximus to name just a few. Half way through the trip it started to rain but fair play to company each segway came with a poncho, an added bonus! We returned to the shop/ office a tad wet but it did not dampen our spirits. I can confidently say that everyone returned on a high as it was a Fantastic 3 hour experience. Thank you Marcello 👏👏👏👏👏
Best tour ever
Bryan_B, Mar 2024
What a wonderful way to see parts of Rome I don't think I would have found myself. The introduction and instruction on how to operate the Segway had me up an running in no time. The guide was excellent, knowledgeable, friendly and eager to ensure all our queries were answered. Even in a monsoon like downpour it was still worth ever cent.
Great introduction to Rome
Keely_H, Dec 2023
Marchello was an excellent tour guide. Very friendly & informative. The tour showed lots of sights. A great introduction to Rome! Highly recommend.
Truely "see" ancient Rome!
Omar_G, Nov 2023
I have done many Segway tours in th US and the Rome tour was amazing Marco used a Virtual Reality headset to help imagine the beauty of ancient Rome. His commentary was fun and educational. We loved it!
Fun and informative
SQZ_S, Oct 2023
Guide from fat tire was amazing and I couldn’t recommend him more! He was so accommodating, friendly and patient to guide my wife on the Segway. Throughout the tour, he professionally took care of her ensuring her safety as well as all of us in the group. The VR used enhanced our experience to see the city for what it was in those days. Without it, it was hard to imagine the splendour of the Roman forums and colosseums from the ruins they now are.
Average tour, could have been better.
Tom_C, Oct 2023
This is the second time i have done a Segway tour in Rome. The guide was a nice person, but he talked far too much and did not really set any scenes on the tour early on and events he was going to cover. there was little time for photos in locations and a lot of detail, but this could have been given better in my opinion. He was a lovely person, but i was a little disappointed and felt the tour was a little disjointed. Thanks to the team though for good comms, as the tour was re-arranged from an afternoon session, so communication on this was good and a few options of other tours were made viable options which was great from the team to facilitate this. Thank you.
Speed your way round some of the fabulous sites of Rome
John_F, Oct 2023
Fantastic way to see Rome in 3 hours fun and full of interesting information. How to see as much as possible in a short time and then realise where to go and see again
Fabulous Rome Segway Tour.
Jeanine_W, Oct 2023
I Love Segway Tours. This one was no exception. It's a novel way to cover distance and get a wonderful guided tour at the same time. For beginners to advanced Segway riders. A Segway Tour is the way to go and an absolute MUST!!!!!
Best bang for your buck!
Scott_G, Oct 2023

A must do Experience
mouldyoldy, Sep 2023
Had a great time. the tour guide was fantastic . doing the tour on a Sunday morning was easier with road near colosseum closed for vehicles .
Excellent tour
Marlee_F, Sep 2023
Matt our host was amazing! He was very safety conscious and ensured everyone was comfortable on the segways. Matt’s energy, humour and knowledge was brilliant! His love of Rome and it’s rich history came through during his interesting stories about the locations we visited. We were able to learn about the ancient ruins and we covered much ground in two hours. As we were only in arôme for a day, this tour complimented the popular sights we could do on foot. We all had a radio with head piece so we could easily hear everything Matt described. Matt was super friendly and approachable and offered to answer and questions even after the tour. He gave us an amazing restaurant recommendation- home made pasta ! The best!! Highly recommend this company!
