Picture yourself in the beautiful city of Florence and you exploring it on foot, It is humid and hot, but you trudge on. Now wouldn't it have been convenient to be on wheels rather than on jaded soles?

Tours last three hours and have a maximum of six participants.
The Segway Tour provides a fun way to get around a small part of the historical center of Florence. We enjoyed hearing about the history of the areas while traveling on the Segways. It gave us a glimpse of the city which we were able to use on our next day walking tour. It would have been nice to have a map of the route we took to reference later. The tour operators give you a very good lesson on how to drive the Segways safely.
We found it a fun way to see Florence, and the machines are easy enough to operate once you have gotten the hang of it with the orientation. Enjoyed the reactions of the people watching as we went by - We have already recommended it to some friends who operate a B&B locally, and will continue to do so!
