What To Expect

Cruise around medieval Bologna in 21st-century fashion: on a Segway. This small-group guided tour of Bologna is the perfect way to see one of Italy’s most beautiful big cities, ideal for the first time visitor or the seasoned traveler.

Begin the tour with a 30-minute instructional on how the Segway works and learn about the itinerary of the tour you’re about to partake in. Try out the Segway before hitting the streets. And once you’re comfortable on it, begin the tour with your guide and small group.

Ride over to Piazza Minghetti, named after the popular 18th-century Bolognese politician Marco Minghetti, and linger here for a short time learning about the history of the space from the guide. Hear intriguing historical anecdotes about the city. And gawk at the ancient buildings that surround the square. Then ride over to Santo Stefano district, via the charming street Via De’ Toschi. Here, stop in front of the Basilica di Santo Stefano and learn about the history of the place.

Continue to ride on with your small-group, following your guide the entire time. Head to the heart of the city, the spot of the two tall medieval towers, an iconic symbol of this university city. Learn from your guide what made one of the towers lean. And then ride to nearby Piazza del Nettuno, the city’s main square, where you’ll learn all about the Fountain of Neptune, before returning again to Piazza XX Settembre, where the tour concludes.

Our 5th Segway tour of a European city and it was refreshing that the tour was more about Bologna and its history than it was about the Segway. Very knowledgeable tour guide who gave us an amazing insight into this beautiful city over 3 hrs of meandering through the streets. Would highly recommend

We had a great time traveling around Bologna on the Segways. You get 5 minutes of instruction - not 30 as advertised but it was fine. There are a lot of historical sites that are much easier to see this way rather than walk, especially in the heat. Our guide was knowledgable.

Eine sehr schöne und vor allem informative Führung durch die Stadt. Die Tour mit dem Segway war sehr angenehm bei den bereits hohen sommerlichen Temperaturen in der Stadt. Man fuhr ohne Mühe und zügig zu den wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten. Tolles Konzept und sehr zu empfehlen!
