    Segway Tour:  Historic Florence with a Modern Twist

Segway Tour: Historic Florence with a Modern Twist

  • City: Florence
  • Duration: Approximately 3 hours

Overview

The Segway Tour is a unique and entertaining way to explore the birthplace of Renaissance, a city that has been an important cultural center for countless centuries. You will have the time of your life as you discover all the wonders of art and architecture that Florence has to offer.

Your tour begins with a 30-minute orientation session and once you feel comfortable riding the Segway, you will start your tour of the historic center. Palazzo Strozzi, Piazza della Repubblica, the Piazza del Duomo with its cathedral and belltower covered in colorful marble inlay are just some of the famous sites that you'll see on this tour.

An expert guide will accompany you and explain the historical and artistic significance of the monuments through a wireless headset: no straining to listen to the guide over the hubbub of the city. Last stop on the tour is the Straw Market with its bronze statue of a wild boar, designed by Pietro Tacca in 1612. Rub the porcellino's nose so you will be sure to return to Florence some day!

Great tour-- the Segways are so much fun and make for a memorable way to tour the city. Segways are easy to ride so don't be hesitant about this tour if you've never ridden before - plus, the first 1/2 hour is "training" where you get acquainted with the Segway before you take off on the tour. Our guide, Siro, was full of good historic information (you hear him through a headset while you ride around) and made the historic sites meaningful to us tourists.

Something very different. Great way to get around the city. Great guide...lots of information.....didn't run over any people. Great fun! Plus.....the office of the Segway tour place is next door to the pizzeria where the cast of Jersey Shores is filming......so we got to poke our head in and see the whole crew! Our kids loved those photos.!

MY WIFE AND I WERE PART OF THIS INFORMATIVE WELL PUT TOGETHER TOUR. THE STAFF WAS GREAT AND MADE YOU FELL SAFE WITH THE SEGWAY BEFORE GOING ON THE STREETS. THIS TOUR WAS THE MOST FUN IN A TWO WEEK ADVENTURE WE HAD IN ITALY. IF YOU WANT TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN JUST A WALKING TOUR THAN DO THIS TOUR.

I am over 50 and must admit I was nervous to do this activity, but my 19 and 16 yr old children convinced me to sign up the family for the Segway tour of Florence. After the initial 30 seconds of wobbly ankles (which we were told to anticipate), it all came together. The Segway people were very complete in their instructions and patient as we all got acclimated. They came along with us for the entire tour to help if it had been necessary (which it was not) and the tour guide was focused on our physical well being as well as the giving the intellectual part of the tour via a head set. We covered alot more of Florence by Segway than I think we could have by foot and had alot of fun that afternoon.

Wow, what fun. There were six in our party all over 57 years. We had a ball on the segways. It was a great way to get through the crowds and see the sights you would normally have to walk to. The guide was knowledgable and the Segway instructor was on time and provided valuable info on how to ride and operate the Segway Transporters.
