Questions About E-Scooters in Florence

Is there an age requirement to ride an E-Scooter?

Yes – all riders must be at least 14 years of age, as required by law in Italy. No exceptions.

Is a helmet included?

Yes helmets are included and required to be worn by all E-Scooter guests, for the riding safety of everyone.

If this is my first time to ride an E-Scooter, will I be able to pick it up quickly?

Your safety is always our highest priority. Therefore, we begin each tour with a very thorough orientation of the E-Scooter and its use before going out to enjoy the city.

We’ve found that our guests pick up on how to ride an E-Scooter within the first 10 minutes, but we like to take 20-30 minutes to explain the machines, demonstrate the best riding techniques, and then allow time to practice before heading out to see the sites. We like to ensure that every guest feels 100% confident before beginning the tour.

While riding an E-Scooter is fairly leisurely, you will be on your feet for the duration of the tour.

Is this tour appropriate for children?

All riders must be at least 14 years of age, as required by law in Italy.

Can minors come on tour alone?

For safety reasons, minors (14 to 17 year olds) must be accompanied by an adult (18+) on the tour.
